City Spotlight on Austin
This week we’re so excited to shine our city spotlight on the great capital city of Texas! Austin is an amazing town with gorgeous weather, rich culture and history, and an abundance of unique features that make it an up-and-coming hot spot for movers and pushers. Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls is eager to embrace this thriving city and be part of what’s happening in such a hip town.
With hot summers and mild winters, Austin makes for a great outdoor vacation. With a plethora of lakes for swimming or kayaking, trails for hiking or biking, and parks for kids and dogs alike, there’s something outdoors for everyone in Austin, TX. Billed as one of the sunniest cities in the U.S., temperatures rise to the high 90s in the summertime making the city’s lakes and waterfronts a valuable asset to residents of Austin. Permacast looks forward to being involved in the preservation and protection of these areas with our line of precast concrete products.
Part of what makes Austin special is its vast cultural scene. From famous museums like LBJ Presidential Library and Bullock Texas State History Museum to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the Texas State Capitol building, there is much to see and do when enjoying Austin. Old Austin provides a glimpse of the former bohemian lifestyle of Austin residents before more contemporary aspects moved in. The slogan “Keep Austin Weird” has long been a reference to the off-beat, eccentric diversity that pervades Austin’s local businesses, as well as the local arts and entertainment scene.
The history of Austin inhabitants dates back to the end of the Ice Age and when European settlers arrived, they found tribes of Comanches and Lipan Apaches living in the area. Fast-forward to the transportation era, and Austin began to grow in leaps and bounds thanks to the railroad systems coming through the city. Today, many industries, include bio-tech companies and the recording industry, have found their homes in Austin and only contribute to the city’s incredible commerce. With so many elite businesses shaping the Austin skyline, not to mention the residents these businesses draw to the area annually, it’s easy to see why the future of Austin is so bright.
What Makes Austin Unique?
A great city is one in which anyone can have a great time, but the locals know what’s really going on. In Austin, several understated features contribute to the genuine uniqueness of the city. For example, the Austin Bridge is home to 1.5 million bats, a fascinating sight that can be seen each evening at dusk. Every year the city embraces unique celebrations like Eeyore’s Birthday party. Plus, any local in the know will tell you all about Austin’s famous breakfast tacos, found around town at any one of many food trucks. Idiosyncrasies like these are what make a city like Austin one of a kind.
