Looking to move to Texas but don’t know where to go? The Lone Star State has no shortage of great cities and towns, but one in particular stands out as an all-around great place to call home: Pasadena, Texas. With its close proximity to Houston and convenient location along the Interstate 45 corridor, it’s no wonder that this city in Texas is among the best places to live in 2017. Read on to learn why Pasadena makes such a great place to live and visit!
The Unsung Capital
Funny thing is, despite being the state capital of Texas, Austin used to be overlooked in favour of other, more well-known cities. Today, we believe it is safe to state that Austin has earned the right to serve as the capital of Texas, and here’s why. First off, there are tons of things to do. You could go see some great music at one of the many concerts or clubs downtown or maybe take a tour with one of those food trucks. There are even plenty of events taking place throughout the year! Second, don’t think for a second that this city doesn’t have history because it does! The people who live here love their culture and respect where they come from.
A Culture Hub
Austin has the distinction of being one of the modern world’s most culturally rich destinations. Over the last several decades, it has been known as a centre for vibrant bars, a fantastic music scene, and gorgeous architecture. Its neighbourhood has developed a very varied and diversified image, making it a genuinely unique location in the South. For instance, the East Side is primarily comprised of old-fashioned homes with front porches and a sense of community spirit.
The West Side is full of residential developments that are home to some affluent Texans who enjoy its spacious grounds and picturesque setting.
In addition, Central East Austin continues to maintain its reputation as an enclave for young professionals who are drawn by its vintage homes with yards perfect for children.
The Place To Be
With so many visitors and newbies visiting Austin these days, it really does seem like the “place to be.” So go there if you’re in Texas and want to see what all the fuss is about. If you live here or nearby, then get out of your house because we’ve got a lot going on this week. It’s finally springtime! I know you guys are ready for warm weather, trees blooming, and green grass. Well guess what? The capital city has that and more! There are tons of events happening around town from concerts to comedy shows to theater performances (seriously!). Take a break from those pesky homework assignments for one night and head over to Zilker Park for Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at Barton Springs Pool – it sounds like an amazing time! We’ll see you there.
