About The Austin Area
Talk to anyone who has lived in Austin for any amount of time and they'll tell you, "I wouldn't live anywhere else." Not only is Austin the capital of Texas, but it has become known as the "Live Music Capital of the World" and ranks as the fourth largest city in the state.
What really makes Austin so special is its diverse and exciting background of people. From cowboys to hippies, from the laid back attitude to its sophisticated arts and cultural scene, from the University crowd to the working class, Austin has it all. That includes beautiful scenery as well. Simply put, Austin has too much to offer to put into words. Visit the Austin Chamber of Commerce website to learn more about our great city.
