Carol,

Have you thought about Austin? The climate is amazing, the community is unlike any other Texas town. With many universities, lakes, rivers, and amazing artists.

“Like the ancient city of Rome, Austin is built upon seven hills, and it is impossible to conceive of a more beautiful and lovely situation.” George W. Bonnell

As the namesake of one of Austin’s highest points pointed out in 1840, this city truly is situated beautifully at the beginning of the Texas Hill Country. After being chosen as the capitol city of the Republic of Texas in 1839, this tiny village quickly grew in size and stature. When the grand capitol building constructed of granite quarried in nearby Marble Falls opened, Austin was a bustling city with the spectacular Driskill Hotel (recently renovated) and the beginnings of the first class University of Texas.

Since Austin is seen as the cultural, political, environmental and educational center of Texas, the area over the years has attracted a diversity of immigrants from Europe, Africa, Asia and Mexico. You should check it out!

Come to Bucks County, you won't be dissappointed. New Yorkers have been coming for generations. It is close to New York and Philadelphia. You can be on the beach or in the moutains in under an hour. New Hope cetrainly fits the bill of non-traditional artists. So check out Bucks and good luck.
