Location matters when it comes to health. Some places promote wellness by expanding access to nutritious food and recreational facilities. Others strive to keep healthcare costs affordable for everyone or keep parks clean and well-maintained. When a city doesn’t take care of these issues, it can be hard to keep up good health. Lucky for Austinites, these issues are taken care of. In a recent study done by WalletHub, Austin ranked #14 on list of healthiest cities in America!
In order to identify the overall healthiest cities in the U.S., WalletHub compared 174 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across four key dimensions:
1) Health Care
4) Green Space
If you live in Austin, you know that of these 4 factors, 3 of them are where we thrive most. Without getting too...
Are you single and ready to mingle? Dating at any age can be incredibly intimidating. If you are single and live in Austin, you’re starting in the right place. In a recent study done by Apartment List, Austin ranked #1 for the best city for dating. Austin is thriving in all ways of the matter. Large job and population growth that brings in new eligible singles every day!
The data shows that there are better dating opportunities for singles with higher levels of education. Thanks to some new developments and corporations, Austin is filled with not only singles, but SMART singles. There is nothing better than connecting with someone through high level conversation. Overall, 32.5% of college-educated singles were satisfied with dating opportunities, while only 25.3% of non-college-educated singles were satisfied. Finding like minded people can boost your own happiness.

In a study done by Upgraded Points Austin ranked #2 on a list of the 10 Fastest Growing Airports in the U.S. With a growth rate of +62.92%, Austin Bergstrom International Airport is growing, but still not enough! Even though the Airport is growing at the second largest pace, it most likely will still not be able to keep up with the ever-growing population.
The study was done based off the information and statistics between 2007-2017. As we know, Austin has been growing in population at crazy levels so it’s not surprising that AUS had to keep up by building new gates and new security. If you have been in the Austin airport recently, I’m sure you’ve noticed the growth in restaurants, security stations, and terminals. Unique fact about AUS is that all the restaurants there are Austin based!!
The most surprising fact from this study was the growth between 2016-2017 accounted for...
Do you work in STEM cell research? If not, you might actually consider going back to school for a few years- According to the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics analysis, STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — professions grew at over twice the rate that non-STEM jobs did between 2009 and 2015. Most types of STEM jobs will also expand faster than all other occupations until 2024. In a recent study done by Wallet Hub, Austin was ranked #4 on a list of the best cities for Stem Jobs.
