PARK AT WELLSPOINT
~ A UNIQUE APPROACH TO MODERN HOME BUILDING ~
People are drawn to the Texas capital's music, outdoor spaces and cultural institutions. Austin was established along the Colorado River on the edge of the Hill Country in 1839. Originally named "Waterloo," Austin remains rich in history, from the bronze statue of Stevie Ray Vaughan that greets visitors near the river, to the stately Capitol that anchors downtown, to the LBJ Presidential Library at the University of Texas at Austin.
Named the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin has a plethora of music venues and local bands to entertain endless crowds. However, musicians should think about finances before moving, as many say it's difficult to make a living in music in Austin. Still, a number of well-established locales are regularly booked and host major musical acts. The metro area is home to banner music festivals like Austin City Limits, a two-weekend-long fall event featuring major headliners and lesser-known acts, as well as South by Southwest, an annual set of film, interactive media and music festivals held in March. Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest has become beloved as a pioneering festival of progressive music and comedy.
Austin is one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the country. That may be great news for the local economy, but a tough pill to swallow for people shopping for a home. The median sale price for a single-family home in Austin is well above the national median. However, Austinites' pocketbooks benefit from no personal or corporate income tax, and a low state and local tax rate.
Summers in Austin take some getting used to, with temperatures often scorching. The metro area experiences mild weather throughout the rest of the year, though temperatures have been known to drop in the winter.
