3. This popular city says it's going to be the next Austin. For all of its fantastic qualities, New Orleans lacks one attribute that Austin already has — recognition as an established, much-hyped tech hot spot. From a business standpoint, New Orleans is an Austin wannabe.

4. Here's a sneak peek at Waller Creek's anticipated transformation. The fourth annual Waller Creek Creek Show will illuminate downtown Austin November 10-18, 2017.
