Small town feel in the middle of a city! Friendly neighbors and eclectic homes. A great little neighborhood center with a grocery store and restaurant.

Living in Crestview is wonderful. All my neighbors are wonderful and it’s slmost like a big family. People with dogs and kids walking in the evenings stopping to chat. We stick together, on issues that concern the area. And we care about the food envirnoment.
Austin is a great, environmentally cautious place to live. There is a lot of new residents coming from California because of the similarities, but it's actually cheaper to live in Austin, although still expensive. Unfortunately Austin is growing rapidly so it is getting more expensive to live within the city limits, but there is still so many opportunities for things to do and places to go that make it worth it.
