For those of us who live in Austin or Central Texas, this report won’t be surprising. But, if you’re thinking of relocating to Austin, you might be interested to know Texas has one of the strongest economic climates in the US. According to the Business Journal, six Texas cities (Austin, Dallas, Ft Worth, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio) were among the top 10 Southern cities in terms of population growth between April 2010 and July 2011. Houston, San Antonio and Dallas held spots #1, #2 and #3 respectively with Austin coming in at #5 just after Jacksonville, FL.
