Art, recreation & entertainment

Our gorgeous natural setting, in one of America's most unique landscapes, offers plenty of opportunities to get outdoors for fitness, recreation and relaxation. But if you're more the indoor type, we've also got a world-famous live music scene and equally exciting happenings in the creative and performing arts. In Austin, it's easy to make a habit out of having fun.

As Austin takes its place among the world's leading cities, our cultural vitality and lifestyle assets continue to grow. Sure, the city is always changing, but it's usually changing for the better. And you can always find your place in Austin – making friends and getting what you want out of life
