cool is just an opinion like someone said earlier, but alot has to do with Austin being a college town.
Austin has
1.the music scene. austin is labled the "live music capital"
2.downtown, I go to downtown Austin, and I see so many cool little shops, I see none of that in san antonio.
3.Stubbs BBQ, an awesome live music venue, and the best BBQ.
4.6th street, I'm 36 and still love going. I like the fact that I can go to one club to watch a rock band, and walk next door and hear a reggae band playing.
5.the Chronical, we have the current..LOL
6.Austin radio is better

I could go on and on. the problem with san antonio is that city officials keep wanting a small town feel to a city that is large.
plus, I'm tired of having to go to Austin to see rock bands that skip san antonio everytime.

San Antonio - Family, Conservative, Stuck in it's ways.

Austin - Single, Liberal, Forward-thinking.
SA is younger than Austin per capita, so what is the whole family thing?

And Austin doesn't have dropouts with its numerous underperforming schools?

That's what the stats say. Not one dropout.

And you believe that? Google it. I just did, and their graduation rate is only slightly better than ours.

Wow, you'd think with all those smart people living there, Austin would have a decent transportation system and not use more water than Houston. Guess it's full of people with liberal arts degrees.

Sarcasm is very hard to convey across the internet. So I'll come out and say it. I believe there are high school dropouts from the Austin High Schools. And I'll take your word for it that SA has a higher dropout rate than Austin. However, the fact remains, or what the possibly bias zillow facts say, SA has a high amount of high school dropouts living within the city borders compared the rest of the nation. And Austin has a high amount of college graduates compared to the rest of the nation. So my only guess is that all those high school dropouts from Austin you're talking about, are moving to San Antonio.

What have I done? I'm surprised they don't have a decent transportation system too. They sure ride those bikes though. Now water, how does Austin stack up against SA on water usage. That should suit the current flow of conversation. Get back to me. Not sure what you mean about the liberal arts degrees, but if that is the case, and they do have a lot of liberal arts degrees, they seem to be commanding a good wage.
