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

Just be aware that commute times can be major in the Austin area because of the inadequate road systems for the population! It may only be 30 miles from north to south Austin, but it can take 2+ hours to travel that distance if you get the wrong day/time. I lived there 3 years ago, and was thankful to live close to my husbands work. Whenever we had to go across town, it was a major pain. I personally lived in South central Austin, and love the south side! It was around Slaughter lane. HTH!

We considered moving to Austin... we flew down last August and visited and it was flat and omg so hot. Housing is cheap though! We liked south Austin; it was prettier and hillier than north Austin/ Round Rock/ Pfleugerville.
