The Overly Opinionated Article on The Best Neighborhood In Austin

Generally, when you search around for the best neighborhoods or places to live in Austin, you run into the same ole usual suspects like 

Allandale · Barton Hills · Buda · Cedar Park · Cherrywood · Downtown · Dripping Springs · East Austin

But, reading a list of places to live and seeing a few bland pictures of these areas in Austin leave me really unsatisfied and maybe that list leaves you wanting something more too when trying to find the top places to move.
Sure, a lot of articles talk about why you would want to live in Austin such as the amazing local music scene and the food and the job market.
After researching the best neighborhood in Austin I realized that when I am trying to find the best place to live in Austin, I want to see how the luckiest man or woman is actually living in Austin.
Now, just for you, I have identified the best place to live in Austin even down to the actual property.

The Honest Biggest Reason Not to Move to Austin Though
Austin was not built with the idea in mind that all of us were moving there. And the road construction cannot--simply CANNOT catch up with the need for more room to drive all the cars through it.
Honestly, my husband lived in Austin for a while and he found the traffic problem to be so annoying that he really did not like living there.
People living in South Texas know that if you have to drive in or even through Austin to get somewhere else that you will be sitting in some traffic.
I once personally ventured out to an Aggie’s football game and the traffic to get there was so heavy, it was unforgettable.
But, Austin is really pretty in some spots:

OF COURSE! Of course it has some sort of privacy block keeping away those Google street recording cars you have.

There you have it folks, the crème dee la crème of Austin Living in my opinion is access to great outdoor recreation, and a great city, while having private luxury on the Colorado River.
