While most “best of” lists focus on things for families, kids and adults at a completely different place in their lives, this newest Austin accolade should be a pleasant surprise for single people moving to Austin or living in Austin. This time, Austin is not just on a best of US list, but a best of the world list, which is pretty impressive.

Austin is Not Just for Kids
Though families and kids are a big part of life here in Austin, that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to do for singles. Austin is a very friendly city. Don’t believe me? Strike up a conversation with anyone and I guarantee you you’ll be talking for longer than you’d expect about more than just what you started talking about. And, because most people aren’t originally from Austin, it’s also an incredibly easy place to meet new people. Just ask the many recent college grads who move to Austin.
