Austin is proud of its weirdness, and you'll see "Keep Austin Weird" around the city on T-shirts and bumper stickers.
This laid-back city mixes hippiness with a growing tech scene and large concentration of tech companies. The city isn’t "Live Music Capital of the World" for nothing. There’s no shortage of places to burn the midnight oil catching the best local artists and touring musicians.
Austin is coffee crazy and many cafes throughout the city brew up organic beans while hosting emerging and established musicians. Austin also hosts two major music festivals, South by Southwest (SXSW) and the Austin City Limits Festival.
Austin is generally safe for women digital nomads, especially for a city its size.
The best times to visit Austin are September to November or March to May, when 70s and 80s are the anticipated daytime temperatures.
As temperatures climb into the mid- to high 90s with high humidity, the Texan summer (June through August) is barely tolerable for unaccustomed visitors.
Winter (December to February) is relatively mild and dry, with temperatures that hover in the low to mid-60s.
