Austin is the capital state of Texas and, according to latest census data – the third fastest growing city in the nation. Perhaps more important to many, it is known around the globe as the, “Live Music Capital of the World”.



Located in Central Texas, it is 34th-largest metropolitan statistical area in the United States. In the 1830s, pioneers began to the settle the area in central Austin along the Colorado River. In 1839, the site was officially chosen as the republic’s new capital and was incorporated under the name, Waterloo. Shortly thereafter, the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas” and the republic’s first secretary of state. The city grew throughout the 19th century and became a center for government and education with the construction of the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin. Dell’s worldwide headquarters is located in nearby Round Rock, a suburb of Austin. Residents of Austin are known as “Austinites”, a quirky and eccentric, casual, independent and friendly population which includes a diverse mix of government employees (e.g., university faculty & staff, law enforcement, political staffers); foreign and domestic college students; musicians; artists, high-tech workers; blue-collar workers and business people.



The premier showcase of Austin’s music scene is the annual South by Southwest Festival. This event draws musicians and fans from around the world, and features not only famous as well as upcoming musicians, but groundbreaking films and is an important venue for the international film festival scene. The, “Longest Running Concert Music” program on American television is Austin City Limits, videotaped on the UT Austin campus. The annual Austin City Limits Festival draws global fans and acts in its multi-day event. The tickets for the 3-day 2012 event in October 2012 are already sold out, reflecting how significant this event has become to the music industry and music fans.



Austin has a vibrant creative and performing arts scene, as well. The nation’s largest university-owned art collection is exhibited at the Blanton Museum. Austin Lyric Opera, Ballet Austin and the Austin Symphony are key contributors to the classical performing arts. The beloved Paramount Theatre on Congress Avenue, built in 1915, is the oldest surviving theatre in Austin. It is vibrant venue to this day, drawing international talent year round. Around the corner from the theatre is the historic Driskill Hotel. Built in 1886, and restored to its original elegance, this hotel features fine dining in a gracious setting.



Austin is routinely recognized in national polls and publications for its achievements. In July 2011, Forbes Magazine named Austin “America’s Number 1 ‘boom town'” based on U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics growth and demographic data. It is recognized has having a strong employment outlook based vibrant business sectors, most notably, technology.



The University of Texas, 45th in academic reputation among the top national universities, and 13th among the public schools, draws students from around the world. Its graduate school boasts 43 programs in the top 10 nationally and 51 others rank in the top 25, as reported in the 2012 survey of undergraduate programs by U.S. News & World Report.



Not only is Austin the live music capital of the world, it is a foodie capital, as well. Home of Whole Foods Market, Austin is also noted for its creative and vibrant food truck activity. A trip to Whole Foods is a travel destination not to be missed, and a day, or three, exploring the food trucks around the city helps visitors understand the Austin vibe. Austin’s emerging restaurant scene boasts nationally and internationally recognized chefs.



Austin is great place to live and work. Austin is among the nation’s best golf cities, according to a 2011 reader’s poll in Golf Magazine. It is an active city, with a vibrant social scene, and an outdoor lifestyle. It has been noted among the country’s 10 best places to buy a home in 2011, based upon indicators of job growth, affordability, dining and overall beauty.
