No. 3 Austin, TX

4 of 22

The Texas capital’s annual arts
festival, South by Southwest, has increasingly morphed into a tech-fest over
the years. The hometown of Dell computers offers wireless coverage almost anywhere, from the Convention Center—which boasts of
accommodating up to 7,000 Internet connections simultaneously—to idyllic Zilker
Park, where you can see techies playing Frisbee golf and taking dips in chilly
Barton Springs. Indeed, AFC voters also applauded Austin locals for being
lovably quirky.
