10 Things You'll Miss About Dallas If You Move to Austin

The time has come for you to break up with Dallas. You've felt trapped in this relationship for years, and it's not getting any better. We understand. There's no need to tell us that it's not Dallas, it's you. We know better. You're leaving Dallas for Austin, the younger, edgier girl you met at a rock concert. It's whatever, man.

Austin is a beautiful place with a gorgeous lake, kickass coffee shops, awesome bike paths and some of the best experimental theater in the state. But the city also has terrible traffic, a bat infestation, and overcrowded music festivals that turn the entire city into a tourist trap several times a year. Just so you don't think it's going to be rainbows and butterflies, we've complied this list of things you'll miss about Dallas.
