Bill Morris: Austin recognized again

Austin recognized again

Earlier this week I noted that Austin was ranked 3rd in the U.S. as a relocation destination, and I have written about numerous "Top 10" lists where the Austin area appeared over the past year. 

Today, another one appeared on Yahoo! Finance, courtesy of

The Best Places for Business and Careers

On this list, Austin ranked 10th -- very acceptable!  Overall rankings, though, were based on a number of subcategories, where Austin really excels:

Economic Growth Projected 2nd
Job Growth Projected 2nd
Net Migration Rank 6th

Great location, good climate, wonderful culture, great people (well, mostly!).  I have been here since the early 1970s, and this town has changed a lot.  When the whole city really revolved around The University and the State Capitol, it still had something of a "small town feeling," even though it was a city of 300,000 or so.  Now, as a metro area of 1.7 million people, there are still a multitude of local festivals and events, a serious commitment to fitness and recreation, many wonderful theaters and galleries, museums and music venues, great parks, Lady Bird Lake downtown, and the rest of the Highland Lakes and the Texas Hill Country nearby.

What a place!
