Cars for Sale in Austin, Texas
The state capital of Texas, Austin is a hub for politics and government in America’s second most populous state. But the city has also experienced a thriving business and technology sector since the 1980’s. The computer manufacturer Dell is based in nearby Round Rock, and companies such as Apple and Google have regional offices here. This wave of tech-related growth has led some to give Austin the moniker "Silicon Hills" in reference to the rolling terrain of the surrounding Texas hill country.
Austin is also known as one of the most culturally dynamic cities in America. It’s home to the flagship institution of the University of Texas and hosts college football action with the Texas Longhorns, winners of several national championships. Austin’s nickname is "The Live Music Capital of the World," and the city lives up to the title with more live music venues per capita than anywhere else in the US. Most notable of Austin’s annual cultural events is South by Southwest, a music/film/interactive festival held every March.
The city is bisected by Interstate 35, a major north-south artery that takes travelers and commerce through the heart of Texas. The region has embraced toll roads as a way to ease congestion on heavily trafficked roadways, with State Highway 130 constructed to connect I-35 north of Austin with Interstate 10 to the south. Within the city, a new 32-mile commuter rail line is the jewel of Austin’s public transportation system. Austin is also known as the most bike-friendly city in Texas, with more than 80 miles of dedicated bike lanes.
