I have lived in Austin now for almost 20 years, but I was thinking about the types of things that I would like to learn if I were moving to a new area of the country. Many of these have already been covered in my online relocation package here:
For the purposes of this post, I thought it would be helpful to give you a few local Austin area websites which will help make your visit (or move) more enjoyable.
Austin 360 – If I want to find local events, festivals, or just stuff that might be enjoyable for my family, this is one of the first places that I check.
Austin Chronicle – This is my default, “go to” site for movie reviews and listings. I don’t always agree with the reviews, but they are well-written and I can at least get a quick idea of what the movies are about. Easy to navigate. Also includes a “Best of Austin” list for MANY categories, as determined by readers and visitors.
AustinTexas.org – This website is owned and operated by the Austin Convention and Visitor Bureau, and it is among the best-designed sites that I have found. Includes information about Austin music, restaurants, the film commission, and much more.
Austin City Guide – Much like Austin 360, this easy-to-navigate website features hotel and restaurant guides, services, shopping, and much more.
Austin CitySearch – Features many sections for nightlife, shopping, restaurants. As with the Austin Chronicle site, it includes winners in various categories.
Austin Texas Homes – I couldn’t resist including my own website here. If you are considering making a move to the Austin area, this is the best place to start. Features online home search tools and great information about our town.
If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I hope to have the opportunity to help you find the right home when the time comes. My cell phone number is 512-796-7653 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
