Beautiful city...love the architecture! Hope one day visit, preferably during SXSW I´ve noted you mentioned the city is famous for the "live music"...is there many events during the year besides the more than famous SXSW?

Most definitely, we have ACL (Austin City Limits) which is another music festival which starts in either September or October. This year Austin will be hosting the first Formula 1 race in the U.S since 2007. There's also Mardi Gras, Texas Rot Rally weekend which stands for the (Republic of Texas) which bring thousands of motorcycles in from all across the state. This is just a few of what Austn does every year.

Announcement

OK, I've got bad news. I'm moving to Florida, likely next month, maybe in September. My job's moving me to West Palm Beach. I'd been wanting and trying to move to Austin for six years, and I finally land this job and move here in August, and I have to turn around and move away.

I knew my job was being transferred. I was just optimistic that I'd land another job. But that hasn't happened. There's not enough time to get a job and leave the Florida one waiting. I need employment.

I hate this. I love this city. It's so fun and happening and photogenic. I'm going to miss it greatly. But there are worse places to move. One of my colleagues is being transferred to Dayton, Ohio. I'm not a fan of snow, so at least I have no real winters in Florida..

I'll try to post one or two more updates before I move.

Thanks for looking at my pictures.

My last days in Austin are upon me, so this is likely going to be my last update. I might update after I move to Florida, but this will be my last update while still living in Austin.

I'm going to miss Austin more than you can imagine, even though I only got to spend a year here. I hope someday I can come back.

On the plus side, I'll take plenty of photos of West Palm Beach, which is underrepresented here.

Last update

Folks, this is my last Austin update. I'm in West Palm Beach, Fla., now, and eventually I'll make a thread for it. I hope you've enjoyed Austin as I see it.

You have done the city a great favor. I still have to make up my mind in choosing between San Antonio and Austin for my trip next year to Texas. Should I stay three nights in SA and make a daytrip to Austin or vice versa?

Are you going with family and want family-related activities or are you going by yourself and like the bar/club scene?

Personally, for family activities, I would go to San Antonio with the Riverwalk, Sea World and Fiesta Texas and if you're going by yourself I would go the Austin route (not to say Austin isn't family friendly).

Ah, such a shame you´re leaving. Thanks for all the pictures of Austin...until visiting this thread I had no idea how beautiful this city is!

Bring us some of West Palm Beach
