Austin Has Lots to Do

Austin Cost of Living is Low
Compared to other, comparably sized cities, the cost of living in Austin is pretty low. You can still find a house big enough for a family, in a nice neighborhood not too far away from the city with good schools in the $200,000s. Compared to California where we moved from, groceries, gas, insurance, taxes and healthcare are also much less. Salaries at high tech companies, though not as high as they are in the highest cost cities, still leave people with more discretionary income then they had in their previous cities.
