Career opportunities aside, what is appealing about Austin? One important factor to consider when contemplating a move is the weather. Daily Austin temperatures range from 70° to 100° in summer months and 40° to 60° in the winter. National average daily temperatures are between 65° and 85° in the summer and 30°-50° in the winter. Average national rainfall is about 3 inches each month. In the winter and the summer, precipitation in Austin is typically lower than the national average, at around 2 inches per month. In the spring and fall however, rainfall exceeds the national average and can reach up to 5 inches a month. Sunshine, humidity, and wind speed levels are all near the national averages. There is little to no snowfall in Austin year round, with about ½ inch occurring in the winter and none the rest of the year.

The most common causes of natural disasters are: fires, hurricanes, storms, floods, and tornados. In Austin earthquake activity is significantly lower than the Texas state average and 100% lower than the rest of the United States.

Weather can be the deciding factor when considering a move. Clearly, weather preferences vary from person to person. If these conditions sound ideal, then Austin might be the right fit for you. If not, you may want to reconsider moving to Austin.


What to Do:


Texas State Capitol:

If there’s one thing to see in Austin, it’s the Texas State Capitol building. It is enormous. The Capitol building houses the chambers of the Texas Legislature and the office of the governor. It was funded by an article in the state constitution that compensated the builders of the capitol with over three million acres of land in Texas’ northern “Panhandle” region. The value of the land, combined with expenses brought the total cost of the building to $3.7 million (and that’s in 1885 dollars). Portraits of all the past governors of the State of Texas line the walls inside the capitol rotunda. Outside, monuments salute Texas soldiers who died at the Alamo, Confederate Soldiers, and Terry’s Texas Rangers.

Inner Space Cavern:

If you’d prefer to visit a wonder of the natural world, check out Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown, Texas. Inner Space Cavern is about 26 miles north of Austin in Texas Hill Country. Along the tour you will see beautiful helictites, ancient flowstones, and giant columns. It’s a cave. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.

Texas Memorial Museum:

The Texas Memorial Museum is the main exhibit hall of the Texas Natural Science Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Since 1939 the museum has fascinated thousands with over 5 million specimens of biological history. The museum was awarded the title “Best of Austin” in 2002 and 2005 by the Austin Chronicle. More importantly, it’s free!

Austin City Limits Music Festival:

The Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival is an annual three-day music festival that has taken place every fall since 2002.

An estimated 65,000 people attend the festival each day, making it the largest music festival in Texas.

Millett Opera House:
