Located in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, the quiet little capital city of Austin has become anything but quiet and little. It is the fastest growing large city in the United States, due in part to a large number of technology companies that call it home. The University of Texas in Austin, the seventh-largest single-campus in the country, also attracts a new crop of university students each year. The self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World”, is home to festivals like South by Southwest and Austin City Limits. Despite the growth, the town still maintains its relaxed atmosphere and abundance of outdoor activity, with the seven Highland Lakes and multiple hike & bike trails.
