The city of Austin was first founded in 1830 by settlers who had camped out by the Round Rock River; though growth was initially slow, after being chosen not long afterward to be the capital of the Republic of Texas, the city began to grow rapidly. Not long after its declaration as the capital of the entire Republic, Texas was annexed by and admitted to the United States; during this time, it was decided that the city would retain its status as state capital, and Austin has remained the state capital since. The city is known as the live music capital of the world, due to its robust nightlife and many bands that have gotten their start in the city, and today the city is a major economic and business hub, home to several Fortune 500 companies.
Austin is located in Central Texas, which means that temperatures tend to be high during the day and cooler during the night. During the summer months, which is the busy season for auto transportation companies, average highs tend to top out in the mid-to-upper 90’s, while overnight lows often drop into the low-to-mid 70’s. Winter brings the slow season to the industry, but Austin is still a popular auto transport location due to its daily highs being up in the mid 50’s and overnight lows only dropping into the mid-to-upper 30’s, while snowfall in the city is uncommon.
