It’s no easy task to describe the greatness that is the City of Austin, Texas, but everyone who lives here knows there’s something special about this city.  There’s a reason 150 people move here every day.  The combination of warm weather, a laid back lifestyle, and tad of weirdness make Austin unique, and despite rapid population growth, Austin remains a downright cool place to live.  Here are the pictures to prove it:
