My Mood:
Anyone want to tell me about the Austin, Texas area

My DH will be working for National Instruments after he graduates in July. So we will be moving to the Austin area in early August. Can anyone tell me what neighborhoods are family friendly and if there are any areas that are recommended to avoid?

We are a homeschooling family with three energetic boys, and would love to be able to find a house to rent instead of living in an apartment. Though we could deal with a ground level apartment, or a townhouse if we needed to.

We would also love to hear about what people do for fun there. I have already looked into the zoo in Austin. It seems a bit expensive to me when compared to the one down in San Antonio. Is the one in Austin really worth the higher entrance price?
