You’ve probably heard the unofficial slogan of Austin TX: “Keep Austin Weird.” It was coined in the 1980s to reflect its eclectic nature. And while Austin still has some of the unique charm, it’s quickly become one of the best cities to live in America for a variety of reasons that are anything but weird.
So why should you consider relocating to Austin into a Paradisa home? Glad you asked!
Nationally Ranked and Recognized
Austin regularly appears on US News and World Report’s best places to live in America, topping the list for three years in a row from 2016 through 2018. Travel and Leisure magazine named it the tenth best city to visit in America in 2020.
The city is packed with more than 65,000 tech companies, earning the nickname “Silicon Hills.” In fact, Apple opened a campus there in 2019, and you’ll also find offices for Facebook and Google.
Best of all, there’s no personal income tax in Texas, making life there incredibly unique. That’s not a typo. There’s no personal income tax!
Activities for Everyone
You want culture? Austin has it in spades. For starters, there’s the incredibly popular South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, attracting up-and-coming musical talent and legendary performers alike. It’s expanded to include tech, film, and comedy festivals as well. There are also a variety of other festivals, including Formula One, the X-Games, and the Austin City Limits music festival.
Austin also serves as the headquarters for the Alamo Drafthouse, a unique movie theater experience that has expanded to locations across the United States. The format has been copied by other theater chains across the country, but the Drafthouse innovated the dine, drink, and watch experience.
If you’re more of an outdoorsy person, you’ll appreciate the copious hike and bike trails in and around Austin, as well as the famous Barton Springs pool.
