Austin, TX - live music capital of the world.
Another tidbit: the unofficial slogan is "Keep Austin Weird"

Boy that's a good question.
We have Murray State University home of the Racers.
Small town hospitality, that is when the college is on break. Otherwise the students are just a bunch of rude people.
We are a dry county.
I'm gonna have to do some research.

Even though we (Florida) are not #1 in lightning strikes, we are known as "the lightning capital of the world". Also, Disney, beaches, oranges.....

Useless information: in June of 1993 there were 21,000 lightning strikes recorded within a 50 mile radius of Tampa.
