Let’s face it, Austin is cool! Whenever I tell anyone I’m from Austin, they know about it, and have either been here, or want to move here.
Austin is a city where you can still find ‘old hippies’ having a cup of “Jo” next to young hippies, hipsters, barely awake musicians, actors, film-makers and businessmen all at the same spot on South Congress.
Austin is a city where you can dress up for dinner and then walk to the Tiniest Bar in Texas or the Mean Eyed Cat for some outdoor music and a beer…and still fit in.
Bagels with cream cheese and lox? Got ‘em.
Excellent BBQ and ice cold beer? Got lots of it.
The finest Tex-Mex ever…pick one, I dare ya! We’ve got upscale, down-home or south of the border style. Manuel’s, Fonda San Miguel, Vivo, El Chile, Maudies, Trudy’s, Chuy’s with it’s Mil Pescado smimming overhead. Those are just the ones I’ve eaten at recently!
Want healthy drive-thru hamburgers and fries, with a blended milkshake? We have that too, at P. Terry’s.
And sushi…I know that Uchi isn’t Japa
nese for Heaven…but it should be! And there are many more good – no, great – places for seafood and sushi. We, finally, have no shortage of creative and delicious restaurants in this city! It’s picking one that’s the problem!
If you’re inclined to want to work off all of that great food, we have miles of jogging trails throughout our city and along our beautiful river. There are gyms everywhere (it’s hot here, and people like wear less clothes) even a few chic gyms right in the heart of the city.
There’s the flagship Whole Foods Market…where it all began.
We have shopping, and businesses, arts and theatres and libraries downtown! We have jobs to go to and homes to come home to.
Many different neighborhoods all with their own flair; from uptown to “get out of town!”
Close-in cute old neighborhoods, beautiful new neighborhoods minutes from downtown. There are parks, greenbelts. There is an environmentally aware community of people of all different races, cultures, and economic backgrounds coming together to work, dine, party, govern and “keep Austin weird.”
We are the seat of Texas government and the home of UT’s Bevo.
We are a sparkling jewel, deep in the heart of Texas.
That’s why I would want to move to Austin, if I didn’t live here.
