Wow! Austin Rankings Keep Coming


Earlier this week I noted that Austin was ranked 3rd in the U.S. as a relocation destination, and I have written about numerous “Top 10” lists where the Austin area appeared over the past year. 

Today, another one appeared on Yahoo! Finance, courtesy of Forbes.com:

The Best Places for Business and Careers

On this list, Austin ranked 10th — very acceptable!  Overall rankings, though, were based on a number of subcategories, where Austin really excels:

Economic
Growth Projected
2nd
Job
Growth Projected
2nd
Net
Migration Rank
6th

Great location, good climate, wonderful culture, great people (well, mostly!).  I have been here since the early 1970s, and this town has changed a lot.  When the whole  city really revolved around The University and the State Capitol, it still had something of a “small town feeling,” even though it was a city of 300,000 or so.   Now, as a metro area of 1.7 million people, there are still a multitude of local festivals and events, a serious commitment to fitness and recreation, many wonderful theaters and  galleries, museums and music venues, great parks, Lady Bird Lake downtown, and the rest of the Highland Lakes and the Texas Hill Country nearby.

What a place!
