Austin In One Word

Posted on: November 24th, 2010 by Julia Rocchi

Home. Comfortable. Outside. "Mom." Confused.

These are just a few of the terms Austinites picked to capture their hometown when we put them on the spot during Austin Unscripted interviews and asked, "If you could describe Austin in one word, what would it be?"

Some people had their word right away. Others pondered it for a few minutes. Still more couldn't pick just one. But they were all able to pinpoint what they loved about their city -- and the responses were as varied as the people themselves (if you don't count 'eclectic').

See for yourself!
