Austin was also second in the same list last year and the qualities that helped our ranking remained the same. Austin is a progressive city with a great climate, mostly warm and sunny. Other factors that helped us place second include SXSW, the proliferation of high tech companies, lots of pediatricians, parks, and farmer’s markets, and our generally healthy approach to living.
