The capital city of Texas, where Longhorns, hippies, yuppies, scenesters, frat boys, sorority girls, rednecks, WASPS, and transvestites all live together peacefully. The most liberal, liveable, and fun city in Texas, or anywhere. Popular for being the live music capital of the world and home to the coolest university.
I went to Austin,TX and I saw a guy wearing tight jeans with a plaid shirt, a dreadlocked hippie, and preppy pearls-and-a-polo wearing girl all in the same taco bar.

On Friday I went to Austin, TX and went to sixth street and got really drunk, then I went to a club and saw some awesome local bands, then i went to eat some awesome food at one of the 24-hour restaurants. I also got hit on by a crazy transvestite wearing nothing but a purple thong. It was the best night of my life.

(1) the smallest big city in texas, also the capital city.

(2) haven for hippies, tattoo artists, fratties, scenesters, coffee shops, and people who aren't sure what they're going to do with their life, and are currently attending community college and working, part time.

(3) home of the university of texas, sxsw, 6th street, and is considered by some to be the live music capital of the world. also the location of a huge .com backlash.

(4) a location with horrible parking and traffic, that tows more cars and gives more tickets than any other city in the world.

-- also known as "the 512" or "ATX"
-- see also, "keep austin weird"
(2) I'm living in Austin, TX and working part time. I think I'll take a semester off school and get another job.

(3) Lots of bands come to Austin, TX for sxsw. Okay, let's get drunk.

(4) I went to Austin, TX and my car was impounded and destroyed.

A Beautiful place, with neighborhoods with hills where you can acutally see scenary unlike some West Coast State..

There are many lakes, many cool restaurants and enough bars to satisfy anyones' pleasure.
It is a city of art.
There is not only many films made in Austin, or TV shows but it is called the "live music capital of the world". You can see a live show any night of the week.

It's the capital of Texas and the home of different celebrities.

We are the Longhorns, we are liberal people everywhere, we are Austin Texas.
One is one of the most bad ass cities in(or of) the world,Austin, TX.
