Are You Moving from Charlotte, NC, to Austin, TX?

When moving from Charlotte to Austin, it won’t take you long to discover why Austin has been ranked as one of the best big cities in which to live. The Texan hospitality, cultural diversity, vibrant entertainment scene, and relaxed lifestyle will win you over in no time. Add to that Austin’s low crime rate, excellent and diverse school system, and affordable housing and you might wonder why you waited so long to become an Austinite!

What Can Austin offer that Charlotte Can't?

The information below will help you realize why moving from Charlotte to Austin could be the best move you’ve ever made.

  • Climate – The snow storms that plague Charlotte during winter months will not be a problem in Austin. Freezing temperatures do not occur often, cold spells seldom last more than two days, and snowfall is rare. Summer days are hot with highs in the 90s, but summer nights are pleasant, perfect for a family cookout or enjoying outdoor activities. Rainfall is consistent throughout the year. During winter, you might notice a violet glow across the hills just after sunset, a phenomenon that has earned Austin the nickname “The City of the Violet Crown.” Even the “Queen City” can’t bedazzle you like this!
  • Education – Ranked as one of the most literate cities in the country, Austin may rival Charlotte when it comes to the diversity and quality of education it offers. The Austin Independent School District serves most of the area, which includes many schools that consistently rank among the best in the nation. Private and alternative education institutions are also available, along with home schooling communities and child developmental centers. Austin is home to a number of colleges and universities, most notably the University of Texas at Austin, which boasts the highest-ranked business, engineering, and law programs of any university in Texas.
  • Entertainment – As the The Live Music Capital of the World, it is no surprise that every genre of music is popular in Austin, from jazz and blues to country and rock. Austin also has a strong theater culture, with dozens of theater companies producing shows. The sports fan in your family will enjoy rooting for the University of Texas Longhorns, while the outdoor enthusiast will want to check out the bicycle-friendly Texas Hill Country, the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail, and any of the 50-plus golf courses. The SoCo shopping district is lined with coffee shops, eccentric stores, a variety of restaurants and food trucks and is the site of many festivals. You will no doubt find your way to 6th Street, the heart of Austin's live entertainment scene. Sixth Street is lined with historical houses and commercial buildings that have been transformed into bars, live entertainment venues, art galleries, casual cafes, and upscale restaurants. Life will not be dull in Austin!
  • Economy – Like Charlotte, Austin is an important economic center in its state. A major center for high tech, Austin has earned the nickname “Silicon Hills.” Every well-known hi-tech company has a presence in Austin, including Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Intel, and Google, to name a few. Austin is also emerging as a hub for pharmaceutical and biotechnology. In addition to national and global corporations, Austin is home to numerous independent, locally-owned firms and organizations.
