Austin has come a long way in my 35 years of growing up with this city.  I've mentioned it before, but it's hard to believe Pennybacker Bridge, aka 360 Bridge over Lake Austin, was still under construction in 1981 when we moved here!  Think about what MOPAC might look like without that connection!

There have been a lot of aerial videos thanks to the evolution of drones these last few years.  This recent one floating around the internet seems to really capture why so many people are moving to Austin!  Some of the views over the new boardwalk that connects the hike and bike trail is something I've grown to really enjoy as an avid runner.  Running East to West from the Longhorn Dam offers some pretty amazing views.  The fly over Zilker Park makes me wonder if that will be our Central Park of Austin one day?

Enjoy the video, but more importantly get out and enjoy Austin!

Nicely crafted. It makes me want to move to Austin soon.  There is talent inherent in putting this together. I would attribute it to GENES. Right Dorie Dillard ?

Hi Bob Ratliff, Broker Associate - REALTOR® CRS, GRI ~ 512-587-5689 John did an excellent job with this video, and Austin has surely come along way since the 80's. I used to know my way around there back then when my brother decided to make Austin his home after he graduated from UT. I get lost up in Austin now, so I may call on some help. Better yet, I will see you at the next Meetup.
