Long.

The residents of Austin are a boiling pot of government employees, musicians, college students, digital marketers, high-tech workers, and blue-collar workers. The city’s slogan names it the “Live Music Capital of the World” in reference to Austin’s many live music venues and resident musicians.

The 1990s saw Austin become a hub for business and technology. Numerous Fortune 500 companies have regional offices or headquarters in the city, including Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Google, and Tesla.

Austin is a popular tourist destination for people from all walks of life. The city is incredibly diverse, which makes it popular with artists and musicians. The city is rapidly rising in popularity with residents and visitors alike thanks to its fantastic culture and friendly locals.
