This is an example of Relative location because you know where Austin is because of its realative positin to the other cities and states. It is in the South Eastern part of Texas. The closests major city to Austin is San Antonio. Austin is North East of San Antonio.
Austin, Texas is the live music capital of the world. We have big concerts all the time in Austin. The biggest is a festivall that is 2 weekends long and is called ACL (Picture Above). People from all over the world move here and travel to Austin because they want to listen to the live music in Austin. That is one reason why Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and is expanding so quickly.
There is many different regions in Texas because Texas is the 2nd biggest state in the U.S. It can be split in a bunch of different ways and Austin can be put in a bunch of different regions but the one that I think Austin is in mainly is the Hill Country Region of Texas because of its vast rolling hills.
