Well I would never have imagined the response I got from my prior post "What's the worst thing about living in Austin?"

Maybe we can do better with this thread. Please no personal attacks between California and Texas. If you can't be nice then please don't post anything.

So what's the best thing about living in Austin?

Thanks,

Joe

(Disclaimer - I've only been here 2 months and I absolutely LOVE it!!!)

Trees, hills, and amazing views. It is just beautiful around here.

The hills - definitely. I love living in the beautiful hills West of Austin. I almost feel as if I'm constantly on vacation - not quite but almost.

Same answer as the 'worst' ...the weather. 70+ degrees for many days in January thus far can help make up for the l-o-n-g string of 100+ days in the summer.

There is a supportive, interconnected creative community here. (Even if sometimes you have to look slantwise to see it). No snow, no ice. People are friendly.

The people and the pace of life. The many local businesses. The local indie film industry. The music.
