Austin was selected as the No. 1 Best Big City in "Best Places to Live" by Money magazine in 2006, and the "Greenest City in America" by MSN.

Austin’s official slogan promotes the city as "The Live Music Capital of the World", a reference to its status as home to many musicians, indies and music venues.
