It’s not just the booming tech economy (Adobe, Cisco Systems, PayPal), the celebrities who have called the metropolis home (Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Willie Nelson) or the breakfast tacos (scrambled eggs flecked with pico de gallo and freshly made tortilla chips topped with glistening Monterey Jack cheese). The appeal of Austin, Texas, is also the compelling real estate it offers for those in search of a place to purchase. As an additional perk, there is no state income tax.

Texas is, and perhaps always has been a place, with an independent nature and style all its own. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, Austin does have a buttoned-down and serious side. But there’s so much more. A buoyant Texas individualism and humor sets Austin apart from many other United States cities. Where else do folks gather nightly to watch bats fly out for dinner from a colony under a downtown bridge?

Sunny skies and skyscrapers are visual symbols of the city. But the people, who seem not to have forgotten their Wild West history, are better representatives, drawn by the pleasures of life including the great outdoors, excellent live music, tempting restaurants and a low cost of living for a major city … particularly one with all the bells and whistles.
