Austin Remains Among Top U.S. Cities for Movers

A new list of the nation’s most popular cities to move to shows Austin remains a hot spot for relocation.

Moving data collected by Penske Truck Rental indicates Austin was the ninth hottest U.S. moving destination in 2021 – down from the Capital City’s No. 4 ranking in 2020. Penske analyzed one-way consumer truck rental reservations made over a 12-month span to determine the rankings.

Austin was also recently recognized as the top metro in the nation for tech jobs, besting San Jose, California thanks to “an attractive combination of opportunity, affordability, and good old-fashioned real estate that keeps technology companies — and talent — flocking to the Lone Star State’s capital city.”

It’s easy to see why Austin continues to entice big corporations and movers from all across the country. With a unique city culture, no state income tax and plentiful job opportunities, Austin is an attractive place to call home.
