The Austin Business Journal released an article today with a great summary of the various lists and ranking that Austin appears on. While this is not a comprehensive list, it does highlight the best lists that Austin appears in.
Everything from Forbes, to GrubHub and others… lists for vegetarian friendly cities, to the best cities to find BBQ, to the best cities for investment, best city for college grads (with a 6% unemployment rate, it’s no wonder), best city for technology start-ups…. and well the list goes on. Literally!
However, the issues I’ve been complaining about for years… traffic… Sadly, we also rank fairly high for having some of the worst commutes in the nation, which is surprising considering that Austin isn’t a huge city by most national/world standards.
