Austin is located in Central Texas and is the eleventh largest city in the United States. Operating as the state capital of Texas, Austin is the second largest capital city in the United States. The metropolitan area of Austin has a population of over 1.9 million. Austin residents are known as Austinites but the city is highly populated with individuals who have moved to the city. A large reason for the mix of cultures and individuals coming in from other locations comes from students who attend the University of Texas. Another draw to Austin is the popular downtown area. The downtown area of Austin is full of nightlife and features many places to see live music as well as restaurants, museums, boutiques, record stores, coffee shops and more. Austin is also home to some of the tallest condominium structures in the United States. One of the biggest draws to Austin for visitors is the music festival South by Southwest (SXSW). Lasting four days in March, SXSW features over 2,000 performers in over 90 venues in the downtown Austin area. SXSW is linked to the Austin Music Awards show and is also a big boost for the economy every year. As the highest revenue producing event in Austin, it pulled in over $167 million for Austin’s economy in 2010.
From the live music and nightlife to the lakes and rolling hills in the surrounding areas, Austin is one of the most interesting cities in the United States.
