There are so many great wonderful and wacky things that we love about Austin, it is hard to contain it to just one blog. So here are a few more reasons to love, visit or even live in Austin.

What's a COTA?

Wacky Reasons to love AustinWe have the COTA. That would be the Circuit of the Americas unidirectional grade 1 3.427-mile racing track. So us lucky Austinites don’t have to globetrot to see the Formula One Unites States Grand Prix or the Motorcycle Grand Prix or even the American Le Mans. Even if you are not a hardcore race fan, the events can be appreciated by all sorts of fans. In fact, the evening concerts have nationally known artists that range from Taylor Swift, Kidd Rock, Willie Nelson and Twenty-One Pilots. Trust us when we say that it really doesn’t get any cooler than that!
