We’ve blogged about it before, but it’s always fun when we hear Austin is one of the top 10 places to live in the U.S., so we are blogging about it again! MSNBC released their top 10 on January 4th and put Austin on the list at #8. They created their list by looking at rankings released by Forbes magazine, Kiplinger.com, Money magazine, Fortune Small Business magazine and Relocate-America.com, and quoted Kiplinger.com as the reason Austin made the list: the Austin area offers “a strong economy, a solid, moderately priced housing market, a growing population and enough natural beauty to justify staying outside.” Got that right. Austin is an incredible place to live and work - we know - we live here! Seems MSNBC is fond of Texas - Houston and San Antonio also made their list.
