This was a great location in North Austin. I had a wedding I attended in Jonestown so I wanted to stay somewhere closer than downtown Austin. It was about a 30 min drive but it was a safe location and had lots of places to eat near by.
As a high-tech incubator, Austin’s northwest fringes give credence to its nickname of “Silicon Hills.” Here, IBM conducts research on microprocessors, while The University of Texas provides seed money and space for promising technologies. Many tech vendors also operate in the area’s office parks. Nearby on Research Boulevard, the Arboretum at Great Hills melds shopping with Austin’s lush terrain.
