- Wedding: June 2012
Hello Austin Bees!
My Fiance and I are seriously considering moving to Austin after the wedding. We’ve talked about moving many times to many different cities, but Austin seems to fit the bill the best for us. I even created a thread a few weeks ago asking for input and Austin kept coming out on top for us.
We’re planning a trip to Austin in the spring to make sure we really do like it. What should we make sure not to miss out on while we’re there? What are a few activities that would work into a 4-5 day long trip? What neighborhoods should we check out for potential apartments?
I’d love to rent first to get an idea of a good area for us. I work primarily from home so not too worried about commuting. Centrally located is good, though. Artsy areas are a plus. We’re looking for somewhere where we can walk to a few cafes/bars/restaurants etc, but as far as nightlife goes, we dont need much. We’re homebodies. Being near some type of public transport would be great too. We’re in our mid 20s, so staying somewhere with a younger crowd and less families would probably be best. Looking at 2 bedroom places, would love to keep it ~1000, but willing to go a bit higher if there is somewhere awesome.
So where should we look into for renting? And if we love it as much as I hope to, any areas we should look into to buy in a few years down the line? (I hate cookie cutter new construction, just fyi. )
