Austin is the 11th most populated city in the USA, and about 32 percent of people living there can speak a language other than English. You can end up hearing Hindi, Mandarin/Cantonese, or Spanish as some of the more common ones. And it is also home to many Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Whole Foods Market, Apple, Facebook, and 3M giving it the nickname “Silicon Hills”.
Austin housing expenses are 2 percent higher than the national average, but their utilities and groceries are 12 percent lower than the average.
Like many cities in Texas, music is a major thing but Austin offers more in terms of culture, arts, and outdoor activities.
