Default Why are people still moving to Austin?

As someone that grew up there and appreciates everything the city has to offer, I just donít understand why people would sacrifice so much to live there. The traffic is horrendous, you could have a decent job and still need a room mate to have enough money left over to actually enjoy yourself, thereís metered parking at Zilker, you need reservations a month in advance just to go to Hamilton Pool. Itís crazy how crowded everything that I identified as being ďAustinĒ has become. I donít know how much higher real estate prices can go before it reaches a breaking point. I certainly wouldnít feel comfortable buying there.

Not sure WHY but if some folks in charge don't seriously start trying to come up with a plan to stop the mass migration to the states capitol city, Lake Travis will be sucked dry one day soon.. It just cant handle much more pressure on a drought year..

You summed up every big city...

If I had to pick a big city to live in, it would be Austin.
Thankfully, I donít have to.

Born and raised in south Austin. Reside in Dripping Springs now, trying to raise a family. Far cry from the old Drip- the quiet hill country town. The sprawl is mind boggling. Little California.

The LCRA has been working on a plan for a while now. The Lane City Reservoir is taking a huge load off Lake Travis serving most of the down stream land owner contracts. The farmers were actually using a lot more water than Austin and surrounding cities combined. Iím not saying Austin wonít have water issues in the future at all, I think a lot of Texas will, but the new reservoir is going to help out central Texas tremendously. I complain about all the Californians coming here too but the money they paid for my house allowed be to buy a little land outside of town so you have to take the good with the bad I guess. Traffic is definitely bad.

I didn't need a reservation at Hamilton Pool.

As someone who moved to Austin recently from Dallas, I thought the reports of bad traffic were a bit overblown. Dallas drivers are far more aggressive. Still, that's not saying much because Dallas rush hour is pretty horrific.

I'm amazed at the race to build in places out along 290 to Dripping, 71 to Hudson Bay, 360 to the dam, etc. Thanks to the toll road out east, even places like Hutto are booming.

Parking is pretty bad in downtown. Even neighborhoods need stickers to park around the tributaries of South Congress. Since I last lived here in the 80's, it is pretty amazing to see the growth and the attempts to pack them in. Lots of three story condos that go straight up.

I moved out of Austin in '91 and headed to Dallas. Now live in Keller. I miss the old Austin. It has always been a unique town with all of the lakes, music and hill country destinations around it. But now, what a mess. Way too many Leftists and traffic jams, with more of the same moving in every day. Yuck and what a shame.

Austin is a far different place from when my dad was stationed at Bergstrom AFB and we had the run of the city as kids. I guess to answer the OP's question:
Centrally located deep in the heart of Texas
Huge University System
International Airport
Beautiful landscape
Easy access to the rest of the state.
Friendly folks.
High tech jobs moving in and paying GREAT salaries.
Government jobs since it is a CAPITAL city.
Decent Weather

They need to start really restricting the water usage in these big cities. All making more reservoirs and lakes is going to do is do irreversible damage to habitat and take peopleís land that donít want to sell. Itís bad enough they waste their own water but then the try to take water from other water districts that donít want anything to do with them.

I work in the capital area ...downtown Austin. there are gillions of HIGH rise condos down town now. Folks are paying STUPID money to live downtown...thus conflicting with the music scene. Austin city council is killing the spirit of Austin.

I live 35 miles away and want to extend that another 100 miles when I retire.

Ran into a guy who lived in Austin 40 years before he moved to Fayetteville AR.
He claims Fayetteville is where Austin was 40 years ago before all those things you mentioned. I graduated UT in Austin 37 years ago and it was a fun place even for this redneck. Right before the dell-ionaires started buying the hills.

Now my daughter is in school there and I hate visiting there now.

The entire Hill country in any direction within 100 miles of Austin is dying. Like anywhere in the world thatís awesome, once the hipsters and money set their sights, itís only a matter of time before itís completely ruined.

Had a NY hedge fund manager tell me he was building a second house in Dripping Springs because of how ďquaint and untouchedĒ it was. I literally laughed in his face.

Some friends once lived in the Dripping Springs area. The parents moved far away and bought a ranch a good distance from the nearest towns. This was around 30 years ago. One of their kids couldnít understand why they would want to move so far out into the country like that and leave Dripping Springs. It wasnít until years later after she matured more and then married, she finally was able to see why her parents made the decision to move.

I can remember setting at a red light on Hwy-71, in a brand new 71 Bronco with my dad, waiting to go under I-35, and seeing herds of deer off to the left where the OMNI Hotel is now.. Its now a spaghetti bowl..
I can also remember when there was literally nothing past the fork of 71 and 290 west.. We would stop at the old grocery store that once was at the fork on the right to buy steaks.. My how things have changed..

I moved to Austin in 1981. It was the coolest city in Texas. Bought my first house in north Austin in 1994 paid 50 grand for it sold it in 1997 for 80. Bought my place in Wimberley because it was out in the hill country. Not any more its now just a suburb of Austin. I work at UT and have made that drive for 21 years and each year it gets worse. I get up at 4:30 get to work by 6:30 7:00 leave at 3:00. If I leave 15 min later I am stuck on Mopac for an hour that's 2 hours to get home and that's at 315 in the afternoon. I have 4 more years of this crap and I retire. I will be selling my place hopefully to someone with very deep pockets and moving to the mountains.

I can live with farmers using water. What chaps me is all the folks who have to water their nice lawns daily. In summer a city will nearly double it's daily water usage due to lawn irrigation.
