The fastest growing of the largest 50 U.S. cities, Austin has become the center of a new high-tech area — the Silicon Hills — with many technology company offices settled here. Blending with this trend are Austin’s variety of live music, love of the outdoors, and its Texas-style sense of independence. Living in Austin means enjoying hot summers and mild winters, and staying fit in Austin’s Greenbelt while rock-climbing, kayaking, swimming, mountain biking or hiking.
