We're looking at Austin, but also considering one of the beach resorts on the Gulf. We've talked about San Antonio, I actually lived in San Antonio when I was a kid, but most Cathletes we've talked to that live in Texas seem to feel Austin would be a better choice. We would love some feedback on this to help us make the best choice.
I vote for Austin b/c I live here, but San Antonio has some nice resorts, too. If you look at the coast, just remember that the beach on the Gulf of Mexico is not like the beach on the Atlantic or the Pacific -- neither is the water. Like Laura, I'm in regardless.
