Top 7 Reasons Not to Move to Austin
Austin. The name alone now conjures a vivid image in the mind of most Americans, one of fun and sunshine, live music and tree-lined swimming holes, tech innovation and a thriving art scene, comparatively cheap housing and all the breakfast tacos one can eat. For the past few years, the capital city of Texas has become a trendy destination for the young–and young at heart–to relocate their lives and fortunes, with an estimated 300 people a day moving in. However, there are plenty of other, less positive things to consider before making the leap to ATX.
But, if all of that sounds like your cup of tea (chai, please) and a perfect ball to boot (bocce if you would), then maybe Austin is the place for you after all. If so, there are few places friendlier and more beautiful that you could make your home. And if you need help creating a website for the owl cafe you’re opening, or writing blogs about your new fashion line made entirely of fair trade macadamia nut shells, we’re here to help. However, we (everyone who moved here before you, even by one second) still reserve the right to decry your personal contribution to both our commute and our brunch wait.
