To be more precise, beautiful Austin, Tx! Anyone on this forum live there? What area? Are you a native or a transplant? What do you love the most? The least?

Share your favorites with me, please. TIA ;o)

Hi I'm in Tyler in East Texas. It's a pretty town and just the right size (100,000). Austin is in such a nice part of the state, the hill country and I hope you're happy there. Welcome to the Lone Star State.

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

I am just now reading your post. By now, I'm sure you've already moved to Austin. I'm from Dallas and a native Texan.
I think you'll love our wonderful state.

East Texas is absolutely beautiful with lush pine, oak, sweet gum and dogwood trees everywhere. The springs there are heavenly.

The hill country is a wonder. You are right there, so you must check it out, and go to Fredricksburg,Texas. Maybe you'll run into Willie and the boys!

Take a drive to Houston via College Station, Texas, home of Texas A&M University. Visit the George Bush Library while you are there. By the way, LBJ'S Library in Austin is definitely worth a visit.

Sometime take a trip to Padre Island by way of San Antinio. You will love it.

Dallas, Big D, has so much to do and see....Texas Rangers , Dallas Cowboys, the Stars, the Mavericks, Texas State Fair in October, Lone Star Race Track, Kennedy Museum, Six Flags and on and on. Welcome to our great state. We're glad you're here!

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

Welcome to Texas! I live in San Antonio, but lived 20 miles south of Austin in San Marcos for about 3 years. I think you'll just love the beautiful Hill Country...that, and the live music...those are definitely my 2 favorite things about Austin. I know you'll receive a warm welcome! Best Wishes!

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

I'm only 80 miles from you. But, I lived in Austin for 5 years. Loved it.

Expensive to live there (for Texas), but so much to do for free with the family. You will want to plan every weekend.

The hiking trails are awesome. The town is very casual.

We belonged to a very large church and soon we knew almost the entire city of Austin.

My niece went to High School with Willie Nelson's Daughter. Also, the famous Southwest Artist Pena. John Connally attended our church. Ladybird lived on the Lake near our home.

You bump into famous plan folk all over the place.

There are Blue Holes, Caves, Rock Climbing and Lakes. I could go on.

Go to the Oasis on Lake Travis and watch the sunset and thank God he has bought you to Austin, Texas.

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

I never lived in TX so i can't offer you any insight, but after reading this thread, it sure makes me wish I did. I live in MD and so want to head left. There is a little bit of the left-coast in me. I could hang out in TX for a while though. I have an uncle in NM. If I ever get there to visit him, I know I'll touch TX.

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

are you still in Austin area? Hope you love TEXAS as I do.But then I'm a native living on Lake Fork, National Champion Bass Lake! Love all of TX.
Yee Haww, Annie

RE: Moving to the big state of Texas....

I LOVE TEXAS!!!! Somehow I came across this *very* old post, and I AM in the wonderful city of Austin~~I can't say enough about Austin, the people, the beauty, and at the moment, BLUEBONNETS! I've been to many of the surrounding small towns, and to the Round Top Antique Festival. I even have a space/booth in a local antique mall(Round Rock). Yes, I *DO* love Texas!
