This city is home to a wonderful ballet, world-class museums, one-of-a kind shopping and stunning outdoor spaces to keep you from getting bored. You can easily spend your morning paddling at the lake, your lunch-hour grazing the food truck cornucopia and finally, wind your day down watching the BATset. Every summer night up to 1 million Mexican free-tailed bats fly out from under Congress Bridge.  It’s a classic sunset view with a funky twist. It’s okay if you don’t have time to fit it all in, you can look for your next opportunity with us and we’ll help you make this city your home. Keep Austin Weird
