"Silicon Hills"

Located in central Texas, Austin is the seat of Travis County and the capital city of Texas. Famed for its musicians such as Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the South by Southwest music and interactive festival has turned Austin into a digital and entertainment powerhouse.

Unlike many major cities, Austin's skyline isn't dominated by skyscrapers. This is largely due to a restriction preserving the view of the state capitol building from various locations. Don't let that fool you, though: Austin is most definitely weird!
