What do I need to know about living in Austin?

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

"Before retiring in Austin, expats should be aware of the city's hot and humid climate. Summers can be especially hot and humid, so it is important to be prepared with air conditioning and other cooling measures. Expats should also be aware of the cost of living in Austin, which is higher than the national average. Additionally, expats should research the city's neighborhoods to find the best fit for their lifestyle. Austin is known for its vibrant music and arts scene, so expats should take advantage of the many cultural activities available. Finally, expats should be aware of the city's traffic, which can be congested during peak hours," said one expat who made the move to Austin.
