It has been adopted by the non-mainstream residents of Austin that are highly progressive socially, culturally, and politically, especially in the arts and music scene. Austin’s “weirdness” is in its local eateries, shops, and vibrant eclectic population.

Clean Air and Earth

Austin is known as a clean air city because it has no-smoking ordinances that apply to all public places, buildings, and restaurants. Austin also has an ordinance against single-use carryout bags, which means that you’ll need to bring your reusable shopping bags with you. Thin plastic bags are not offered in stores.

Austin is known for its vibrant music scene with more music venues per capita than any other U.S. city. Visit the nightclubs on 6thstreet for great music, and then attend the Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park. The South by Southwest (SXSW) festival is a film, interactive, and music festival that covers a couple weeks and many musical acts. People travel from far away to attend, but you’ll be living in Austin and can take advantage of the local music scene.
