Austin, Texas is your Next AV Career Move: Here’s Why

AV Industry: Look No Further

Austin gets a bad wrap. The age old motto of, “Keep Things Weird,” and its transition into a city defined by the tech industry makes Austin seem like California. Here’s the thing: it’s not. It’s still the type of place where you can hear authentic live music, eat the best Mexican food of your life, experience the great outdoors, and find a peaceful neighborhood to settle into. What’s better than that? Let’s take a look at what lies in store for your next career move in the Texas capitol of Austin. 

What is Austin’s Cost of Living Like?

We all know that when it comes to moving, cost of living is the determining factor. It’s no surprise that Austin’s cost of living has risen over the years and yet, there are still quality neighborhoods that are safe and cost friendly enough to call home. Neighborhoods like North University, which is close to the University of Texas as well as Cedar Park are safe bets for great median home prices and rental prices. While these quaint neighborhoods lack a closeness to urban features, they make up for it in safety, space, outdoor activities, and peace and quiet. With so much going on downtown, it’s nice to unwind and feel secluded. Luckily, these affordable neighborhoods provide exactly that! Looking to get around town? While Austin’s transportation index is high, Austin is known to be one of the most bike friendly cities in America and is host to an affordable public transportation system. Needless to say, you won’t have trouble getting around to experience all the great amenities and attractions that Austin has to offer. 

What to Do in Austin: More than Just Music 

Austin is known as the live music capital of the world. With venues far and wide, famous country musicians coming and going, and a multitude of local bands popping up every month, you won’t have trouble staying entertained if you are a music fan. Into bluegrass and country? Stubbs has you covered and with great Bar-B-Q to boot. Into something different and more local? You’ll find it at the popular downtown spot Cheer Up Charlies. Into rock, R&B, country and everything in between? Head over to Spiderhouse for fantastic live music, gourmet coffee, craft beer on tap, food trucks, trivia nights, and a unique outdoor space that will keep you well occupied until 2AM. Music isn’t the only reason to call Austin home though. From exploring caves, to taking a dip in a spring-fed pool, and canoeing the Lower Colorado, Austin offers a unique Texas outdoor adventure for everyone. Less of a hiker, swimmer, and explorer and more of a hunter? Thanks to Texas’s unique landscape you will find some of the best hunting out there. Whitetail, hogs, dove, quail, waterfowl, you name it and Austin has it. The real catch of Austin isn’t just the activities that it provides. The look and feel of Austin is something else. A mixed dry and humid climate won’t leave you sweating like its Houston neighbor to the South. And the scenery is something else. Lady Bird Lake, the Texas State Capitol, McKinney Falls State Park, South Congress Avenue, and Zilker Park provide a gorgeous backdrop that’s hard to find anywhere else in Texas.
