Any Austin residents here? Thinks of a move and wanted to get some input from FBers who live there

You'll definitely have to get used to connecting flights or switching airlines constantly. I was a delta elite when I moved down here and since I've status matched over to United and still need to connect on certain flights. The airport is nice though. Don't listen to EY1, that's the attitude of some of the more douchey Austinites, but for the most part people will be nice about you moving down here. The city is growing faster than I think anyone anticipated and there are definitely some growing pains associated with that (really bad traffic, rapidly increasing home/apartment own and rental costs, overcrowding, etc.). In terms of neighborhoods, I would recommend southwest or west Austin, or if you can afford it, downtown. East Austin is sketchy but there is a lot of gentrification going on, south Austin is where I live currently (it's alright, overrated imo), and north Austin is suburbia/hell.

Seriously. Please don't. We are tired of people flocking here.

I do. What up?

Where do you live now? Spent 2 years there, moved away. Really sucks for travel, unless you enjoy 5:40 flights connecting through Houston

Besides not sweating. It's still Texas, after all
