They say the grass is always greener on the other side and as far as Austin, Texas is concerned that phrase couldn’t be more true. Austin is a unique blend of culture, events, and traditions that breeds envy in every other city in the US. So what is it that Austin has that you don’t? A lot.

Austin is hailed as the live music capitol of the world with more live music venues per capita than anywhere else. The Austin City Limits music festival is hosted in, you guessed it, Austin.

Austin surpasses even San Francisco as the number one city for tech development and startups and it also the second fastest growing city in the nation. All this and we didn’t even mention SXSW yet!
