I’m not sure I’d use the word “respect” here.  More like “am amused by” or “am fascinated by” ... kind of like a visit to Ripley’s Believe it or Not
yes, "respect" is probably a bit much
but, "amused by" isn't enough in my opinion
Commend, appreciate, or applaud would fit better in my mind
although, I'm pretty sure I understand fully what you are inferring

The 8th wonder of the world = the magnetism of Austin TX
I'm a small town dirt farmer - not much into magnets
I'd probably settle up north around Leander, Round Rock, Georgetown, Taylor
Somewhere off the beaten paved freeway near a decent golf course and a good BBQ joint
just like to annoy utee, but not enough to lose a kidney over the deal

Out towards Taylor will get you off the beaten path pretty quick - may get too rednecky for you in that die-rection.
Leander has been swallowed up.  Keep going northwest.  Round Rock may be ok for you.  Georgetown is still nice but growing.
Marble Falls is nice if you have a bag of money and don't need to work.

I don't care about the "rednecky" aspect of the Austin hinterlands, cos I tend to be a cultural chameleon and get along with folks wherever I am.  But I do worry about the heat, and even up in the Hill Country it just gets too darned hot for me to want to spend summers in that part of the world. 

I could see spending winters, falls and springs there though - easily.  For me the Hill Country is the major draw of Austin.  I do like the weirdness factor and 6th Street and the good live music and the overall progressive politics.  But none of that would draw me like the Hill Country does.  What did Jerry Jeff say about dancing naked in the Hill Country rain?  I like his perspective.

The missus and I are working towards spending less & less time in the LCP part of the ATX & more & more time traveling to places in God ‘s green earth.  You know... to savor DIVERSITY in climate, scenery, cusine, music, culture, people.  The security of blandness is only a comfort for the scared & unimaginative.

I just need an inexpensive place near a decent golf course, 18 holes is a must - mustang creek just won't do

Blackhawk isn't too expensive in Pflugerville

maybe Georgetown, heck I could end up in Killeen

I don't think it snows much in Dallas

Hill Country and inexpensive are two terms that refuse to co-exist any longer.  Horseshoe Bay has a course near Marble Falls.

I went to a place in Vegas just upstairs from Wahlbangers called Redneck Riviera. Had a waitress that looked like an older version of Courtney Cox in”3000 Miles to Graceland”  - all skinny and flirty and boob brushing.   You know, brushing her boobs up against everyone and everything.

When she sashayed into the kitchen with her wriggly little butt, I said to my friends, “She looks like Courtney Cox only older,” they all thought hard and nodded.

Finally one ‘em says, “You know... Courtney Cox looks like Courtney Cox only older nowadays.”

I thought hard.

And nodded.
