We will be moving to Austin, texas for my DH's new job in early August. Can anyone tell me what neighborhoods are family friendly and if there are any areas that are recommended to avoid? We will be renting for at least the first year or so and would love to be able to find a house so that our 3 energetic boys have a good place to go and play. Though a ground floor apartment or a townhouse would be doable.
We homeschool and would love to know about any active homeschool groups or co-ops.
We would also love to hear about what people do for fun there. I have already looked into the zoo in Austin. It seems a bit expensive to me when compared to the one down in San Antonio. Is the one in Austin really worth the higher entrance price? Our family love to get out in nature and walk/hike.
We are also hoping to be able to have another baby, so I would love to hear about midwives in the area you love.
TIA to anyone who responds.
