Austin - City Guide
If you’re moving to Austin, you’ll be joining a crowd of young families, entrepreneurs, and artists. The unofficial city motto “Keep Austin Weird” should give you a little insight into the exciting adventure you’re about to embark on that is life in Austin. To make sure you land comfortably and with all your belongings in tact, we here at HireAHelper recommend comparing Austin movers past reviews and pricing before booking your unload. There are lots of great Texas moving companies covering Austin that won’t charge you an arm & a leg to unload your things quickly and safely (yes, those two terms can be used together in the moving industry). To kick off your new “Weird” life with a bang, be sure to checkout the “Welcome to Austin” guide below.
Welcome to Austin
First things first - the most important thing, at least in my hungry mind, to find in a new city is a unique (my dad says “indigenous”) place to eat. Austin has a plethora of uniquely delicious options. Your first taste of Austin should probably either be some of Lucky J’s fried-chicken-and-waffle tacos or some kimchi fries at the Korean-Mexican fusion food truck, Chi’Lantro. Both eateries were featured in Food & Wine’s highlight of Austin in their list of “The World’s Best Cities for Street Food.”
Craving something cheap-flavored but still tasty? If you’re into tacos, you’re in luck. Spread across Austin are restaurants and food trucks with tacos under $3-$4 that will wow your taste buds. Checkout the al pastor tacos at La Guera taco truck or the pork leg tacos at Taqueria Arandas. Both eateries serve their tacos for under $2 each!
We can’t forget about dessert. Doughnut lovers (like me!) need to checkout Gourdoughs. The menu reads more like a gourmet bakery menu than a donut house. But you’d expect that from a doughnut shop housed inside an Airstream, right? BestAustinFoodTrucks.com recommends that you bring some chocolate loving friends with you if you attempt to take down the Blackout ultimate chocolate doughnut. First timers might want to ease in lightly by trying something like the Naughty and Nice sugar and spice doughnut that comes with a (naughty) extra side of melted butter to dip, pour, or sip at your own discretion.
Fun in Austin
The official slogan for the city, “Live Music Capital of the World,” iterates one of the entertainment mainstays of the area - live music. Austin is known for it’s thousands of local concert venues. Even more than the venues, Austin is famous worldwide for it’s South by Southwest Festival (aka SXSW) as the launching ground, not just for musical talent, but technological talent as well. Popular mobile platforms, Zaarly, Foursquare and Gowalla all launched at SXSW festivals. Twitter got a large majority of it’s ground level buzz and interest at one of the festivals, although a Wikipedia article discredits the myth that Twitter was launched at South by Southwest.
Looking for something a little more family oriented? Take the kids to watch more than a million bats as they fly out from under the Congress Avenue Bridge each evening (insider tip: Don’t get too excited. It’s common to hear locals tell visiting friends “there’s usually a lot more bats.”). Go take a vintage train ride with the Austin Steam Train Association. Or get a close-up look of more than 300 animals at the Austin Zoo just outside of town.
Public transportation in Austin is handled by the Capitol Metropolitan Transportation Authority. They offer travel on their MetroBus lines, MetroRail lines, or via their RideShare program. A MetroBus local day pass is only $2 and a regional day pass (that’ll get you on the MetroRail) is only $5.50. The MetroRail runs from the northern Austin suburb of Leander all the way to downtown Austin with 7 stops in between. You can buy tickets from the transit store, local retail shops, on the website, or even at the ticket vending machines (TVM) located at each station.
There’s plenty of parking around Austin, even downtown (although metered). Getting around in your own car is fairly simple, just know ahead of time several of the downtown streets are one-way. Austinites eagerly press for more eco-friendly forms of transportation, so getting around town by bike or foot are definitely viable options if you live close enough to work or school to commute under your own power - plus you’ll be more quickly assimilated into society as neighbors and friends see your green transportation preferences.
The Local Scoop
Kate Morris writes in her Austin Insider Tips post that the best ice cream in Austin is Amy’s Ice Cream. If you’re looking for a great brewery she recommends North by Northwest. From what I’ve read, you’d also do well to get acquainted with one or all of the farmers markets spread across town throughout the week.
Make sure to checkout this crime map of Austin from real estate search engine, Trulia. It’s interesting to note that Austin locals would believe that East Austin is the most dangerous part of town. The map however shows that more crime happens Downtown and around the University of Texas.
Austin traditionally has hot summers and mild winters. Snow is rare, so if you’re used to shoveling the driveway you can rejoice (and sell the shovel). Every couple of years an ice storm locks the city down for a day or two, but otherwise winters are bearable with temperature drops below freezing only about a dozen days a year. Humid winds from the Gulf of Mexico blow through Austin each summer making the 90 degree average feel hotter than it is.
