Austin, the 'Live Music Capital of the World,' has been named one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, due to its lower cost of living. Since I'm 18, I can't say much about the nightlife, only what I've been told from others. Downtown Austin is home to 6th street, attracting tourists from all over the world to listen to various live bands and orchestras year-round. Austin City Limits music festival and South by Southwest are only two of the main attractions located in Austin.As mentioned, Austin is substantially diverse, with people immigrating from China, India, Europe and South America. Being considered one of the most liberal cities in Texas, it happens to be highly accepting of different religious customs, beliefs, and social activism. With that said, Austin continues to promote healthy living by showcasing stores such as Sprouts and Whole Foods in media and advertisement. Austin is a wonderful city and I'm proud to be an Austinite!
