Austin, “Live Music Capital of the World,” is widely recognized these days as an up-and-coming city for high tech and the entrepreneurial spirit. The newest nickname for Austin is Silicon Hills, so dubbed by the annual South by Southwest Music and Media Festival (SXSW) held every March. Austin is also known for its appealing location and ambience among pretty inland lakes off the Colorado River, which runs through the heart of town. University of Texas at Austin is among the area campuses which ensure a steady stream of young people in and about town, fostering a hip music, sporting, entertainment, and nightlife atmosphere. When it comes to business, the airport is close by, and Austin is littered with a growing number of Fortune 500 regional headquarters.
