Greetings from Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World! With around 157 new people moving into the city every day, over 100 new restaurants opening this year, and recently ranked as the best big city to live in, Austin is the place to be! We love breakfast tacos, rescue dogs & cats, live music, queso, bar hopping, Texas football and natural watering holes.
