What do I need to know before moving to Austin?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Austin, they said:

"Austin is a vibrant city with a lot to offer expats. Before moving to Austin, it is important to research the cost of living, as it is higher than the national average. Additionally, the city is known for its hot summers, so it is important to be prepared for the heat. Expats should also be aware of the city's traffic, as it can be quite congested during rush hour.
