Austin is in a southern state but we are defiantly not cowgirls and cowboys. Most people say y'all, but for the most part we don't talk like stereotypical "Texans". Downtown Austin has tall buildings, but it's nothing like New York. It is the Live Music Capital of the World.

Human Envirnment Interaction

Austinites have put dams on lakes, and everybody has to have air-conditioning because without it we would all melt. There are lots of highways for all the cars, which isn't good for the environment, but we do cut back on things like watering our grass. Austin is in a drought so we try to conserve as much water as possible.
