How could you mention Austin?
The terminal is futuristic (in an industrial sort of way), spacious, and has unique Austin-Based vendors.
True, Austin itself has sort of sold out to urban sprawl but that cannot be helped when you have a massive influx of industry and people like the one Austin had in the last decade. The highway traffic problems in this city are horrid, but all in all, I think Austin is a nice place to live because there's always something going on here.
From a pilot's standpoint, the design is well laid out with two paralell runways with the terminal in the middle.
