    Eat tacos. Drink Lone Star. Listen to live music. Boogie with your boo. Take in the sun. Cool down with a margarita. Repeat as necessary.

    Best time to visit: September - October. If you can stand the bustle, go for the iconic ACL festival late September. The city slows down after that, so if you want a quieter vacay, October is great. Read more

    Grew up near Dallas and have to admit while if you live in a small town nearby it is fine to visit on occasion when boredom sets in. When looking for a place to settle down though come to Austin.

    Why would anyone suggest to people to not to move to one of the best cities in Texas? To people that haven't been here it's actually a very great place to live. Culturally diverse & yet laid back.
