The website says of Austin, “Don’t worry, if you’re looking for something to do at night, there are plenty of bars, like Dusty’s Bar & Lounge and B & J Bar, just to name a couple.  If you’re looking for something to do during the day, though, Austin has a variety of arts and entertainment options, ranking fourth in this category, and tons of restaurants like El Mariachi, the Old Mill Restaurant, and Steve’s Pizza, ranking 10th in this category.”

For Rochester, Movoto says “Where some of our top 10 places ranked very well in one or two categories, but bombed the others, Rochester did pretty well across the board.  It ranked seventh for its number of nightlife places per capita, 11th for its arts, and 12th for its young population, with 25.21 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 34.”
