Last blog we discussed how Texas is one of the most affordable states in the country to live in and how Austin is one of the most affordable cities within Texas. But affordability is not the only upside to living in this fantastic city, (although we will never turn our noses up at that!) Because our Thurman team lives and works in and around Austin, we know this area like no one else. So, allow us to share a few more reasons why living in Texas is so great.
Strong Sense of Community
Texans are often known for their friendliness and strong sense of community. Many cities in Texas offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making it easier to build relationships and feel a sense of belonging.
Rich Cultural Diversity
Texas is a melting pot of diverse cultures, with a vibrant mix of traditions, cuisines, and festivals. Living in Texas provides opportunities to experience and appreciate this cultural diversity, contributing to a rich and multicultural lifestyle.
Texas boasts beautiful natural landscapes, such as stunning coastline, vast prairies, and scenic hill country. Residents can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing, camping, and water sports. The state also offers numerous parks, lakes, and recreational areas for residents to explore and enjoy. And don’t forget to explore the two national parks that Texas is proud to host!
Excellent Educational Institutions
Texas is home to several renowned universities and colleges, including the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, and Rice University, among others. The state's strong educational system provides opportunities for quality education and research.
Lower Healthcare Costs
Texas generally has lower healthcare costs compared to many other states. This can be beneficial for individuals and families in terms of affordable health insurance options, medical services, and access to quality healthcare facilities.
While Texas has many advantages and affordable cities, it's important to consider individual preferences, lifestyle, and career opportunities when choosing a place to live. Each city within the state may have its own unique advantages and factors to consider, so thorough research and consideration are recommended before making a decision.
