i think i am going to take a trip there and check it out. i have a brother in atlanta and its a growing area, but it would be nice to get away from the weather. i am in sales med/dental i would have to think that austin would rock, and it seems to be a growing area

Fun town, but not sure I'd call Austin a growing area, its pretty much all growns up. Its an awesome city, but has the worst traffic in the state, which is saying something, but it also probably has the best looking women per capita in the country.

Its absolutly horrible. Please reconsider. There are no good wakeboarding spots and its cold all the time. Plus, the mexican food is horrible, its expensive to live there when compared with other large cities in the states. It is impossible to find good live music. I would completly stay away.

It's boring, filthy, crime-ridden, and everyone is rude.

PS. Most true austinites dont' want any more poeple discovering how awesome it is to live in austin.

To add on Sanfields stmt. beatiful women are almost everywhere, while austin has a ton of them, it's their approachability that makes them even more attractive.

You like my example? :-)

I assumed you're an Airman because you're profile says military as occupation and San Angelo as town. I know Goodfellow AFB is there. I went to school there when I was active duty.

Well you assumed right. I am a MSgt stationed in Iraq right now.

Back to Austin. It sucks. Stay away.

You can live in a quiet suburb of Austin and avoid all the typical urban issues. You can also be in downtown Austin from Round Rock or Georgetown in 15-20 min assuming you don't hit rush hour traffic. I have a house there you can buy from me:-)

I actually wouldn't mind moving there, but I would take a huge pay cut and teachers already are not paid a whole lot. Seems like a pretty fun town though.

Eventhough I'm not a fan of texas in general... lived in houston and south texas for a significant amount of time... I would pack up and move from here (socal) to austin the VERY second a job opp presented itself. I am absolutely in love.

If you love the outdoors, music, and wakeboarding; there is nothing better. The southern hospitality and low cost of living is icing on the cake.

My wife and I have been looking hard at moving to the Austin area also. What is the weather like there year round? 30 years in Bend, OR is going to be hard to leave I can be on my snowmobile in the mountains and 45 mins later be on the lake wakeboarding, but with Oregon slowly becoming California it is looking like it's time to get out of here. I can deal with no snow but I live on the boat 6 months out of the year what are the lakes like? Blown out and crowded or is there still some good area's.

That depends on the lake. There are some beautiful lakes in TX with very clear water that stays warm late into the season. However, most lakes in TX are Corps of Engineer lakes and don't allow private boat docks. So most people store them on land and use the public launches. Depending on the lake, this is either no hassle at all or quite a bit.

There are lakes either in Austin or within an hour that can suit anyone's needs from party meccas to virtually deserted.
