U.S. News and World Report posted a top 10 Best Places to Live report on June 8, 2009. Since we love seeing Austin make it on best places lists, we thought we would share! Here’s what Luke Mullins has to say:

“If you’re a free spirit, music junkie, or barbecue lover—or if you simply have what it takes to ‘keep Austin weird’ - Texas’s state capital is for you. Considered ground zero for live music, this city of 716,000 residents is home to legions of musicians and nearly 200 performance venues. In addition, Austin hosts the always popular South by Southwest festival. Since its inception in 1987, the event has mushroomed from a local gathering to a 1,800-band, 80-stage extravaganza of music, filmmaking, and interactive activities featuring performers from all over the world. Austin is also a high-tech hub, with companies like Dell and IBM, which employ thousands of residents. ”
