My husband and I are looking to make a change from Portland, Oregon to Austin. The economic situation in Portland is poor and housing prices are attrocious! What is the current situation in Austin? I am in the alternative health care field and am wondering what the attitude is like toward these types of services (chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.)?
We are making a trip to Austin over this next weekend to check out the city and have gotten some great advice from other posts regarding restaurants and entertainment - thanks!
We would also like to check out some neighborhoods and also some areas for potential retail space for an alternative health clinic. Any suggestions or recommendations for nice neighbohoods to look at real estate?
We have heard that Austin is very similar to Portland in a lot of ways. Portland has some great, older "closer-in" neighborhoods full of early 1900's refurbished houses with nice character, any of these thypes of neighborhoods in Austin that are actually desireable to live in?
We're excited to get to Austin to check out what sounds like a great city!
