About Texas

Nicknamed “the Lone Star State” Texas is a giant both in terms of its land area and population, being ranked the 2nd largest state in the US by both of these factors and acting as home to a remarkable 27.5 million inhabitants. Texas was the 28th state to join the USA and has become one of the country’s most famous areas thanks to its distinct culture. The University of Texas in Austin is a well-known and highly regarded institution. If you are considering moving to the US, Texas will undoubtedly check your boxes! With several educational opportunities, and teeming with culture, moving to Texas should most certainly be of interest.

Austin is the state capital of Texas and is renowned as the live music capital of the world. It is the fastest large growing city in the United States and is a hub for the technology and business industries, with many large companies having their headquarters there. Austin is sometimes referred to as the ‘city of the violet crown’ because of the beautiful glow of colourful light which appears across the hills just after sunset.
Dallas is known for its past centrality to the oil and cotton industries. Today the city is home to many millionaires and billionaires, including a notable number of celebrities. You will find plenty to keep you entertained in Dallas, including a remarkable number of opportunities for eating out: the city has more restaurants per capita than NYC!
