… that’s the city’s motto. And you can feel it!
They actually created this motto (Austin people told me), because the inhabitants felt that business and companies are taken over and more when more “business kind of people” came into the city to work for the huge companies.
Austin is also a very liberal town, nowhere else in Texas you would find a sign like this:
And Austin is a student town, a very good university is here, it’s a town for artists and individuals … and that is what you see, when you walk especially around South of Congress (SoCo).
For 1.50 USD you can buy a day pass for the bus. Unlike in other US cities public transportation is good in Austin!
So it is really a great place to visit!
