The report evaluates US cities based on job market, quality of life, migration to & from the area, value, & desirability. Some of the many perks of this city include the booming music scene, the funky “vibe of the city (unofficial slogan is “Keep Austin Weird”), and the large number of people who come to the city every year. Big businesses (such as Apple, Google, & Facebook) & warm temps are additional perks.
