Welcome to one of the best towns in all of the United States. Austin, TX is an amazing place to live. It’s a great place to raise a family. The schools here perform well, nationally and the weather here is glorious, most of the year. Because of its high tech industry, Austin is affectionately known as the Silicon Hills, as opposed to California’s Silicon Valley. Living in Austin, for however long that may be, is an opportune time to expand your horizons. Once you get settled into your Austin corporate housing, make sure you get out and about.
As far as industries that are a part of this city, high tech leads this city in terms of numbers employed as well as resources invested. Companies such as Dell, Apple, Google, Qualcomm, AMP, Cirrus Logic, Intel, Rackspace, eBay and PayPal have a presence here. Austin is also targeted to be one of the hottest job growth markets according to Forbes Magazine. Austin is pretty unique when it comes to distribution of residential homes between downtown and the suburbs. Due to an effort by the Mayor’s office, a program was set in motion to attract developers to build within the city. The result was a skyline of skyscrapers like the 360 Condo Tower and the Four Seasons Condos. This resulted in the rejuvenation of downtown living. As far as medium term lodging, choosing an Austin corporate housing in the downtown area over a luxury hotel, will prove cost effective.
How to Dress When Stepping Out of Your Austin Furnished Apartment
The climate here is as you would expect it—hot! The hottest months are June through August where the mercury creeps passed 90° then slowly descends through the 80s and 70s the fall and down to the 60s for the high in winter. The lows in the winter don’t break the 40° mark and even that’s usually in the wee hours of the morning. Bringing a sweater and jacket combination to your Austin furnished apartment will work for most people in the winter. In the summer months, however, dress light.
