Why We Love It
Austin, the state capital of Texas, is known for its live music, numerous festivals and relaxing outdoor spaces. Located within Hill Country, the city blends its Spanish and Mexican influences, BBQ style cuisine, and rolling hills of vineyards into one unique culture. The city had even adopted the popular slogan, "Keep Austin Weird", in effort to preserve smaller local businesses, rather than excessive commercialization.
