- At a Glance
Austin is a city that prides itself on music. The self-proclaimed Live Music Capital of the World lives up to its name, with myriad unlikely establishments -- grocery stores, City Hall -- opening live-music venues on their properties. Thanks to a large German immigration in the 19th century, there's a Southwest-meets-Deutschland vibe here, most keenly illustrated at the local barbecue, where the staples are brisket, ribs, and sausage.
