Getting Settled

What are your tips for getting settled in a new city? I am not looking for moving tips. I am looking for tips about getting aquaintaned, settled, and secured in a new city once you are moved. If it helps, I am moving to Austin with my wife and two young kids and are leaving our friend and family behind. What services did you pay for / use that made your adjustment a lot easier? How did you learn the road system? How did you find the right community groups / churches / clubs? How did you deal with the stress and emotions that come with a big move? In a nutshell, I want to know how to make the transition to a new city a lot smoother.

Logistical and philosophical issues when relocating to, well, nowhere. Sort of.

Recently, 1) I got (amicably) disengaged from a lovely person, 2) decided to sell my house in Columbia, SC, 3) had my work project in Columbia end, and 4) had my company put my on a new project in Raleigh, NC, with a free corporate apartment. So, for a while at least, I can live in Raleigh for free in a corporate apartment, but where should I have mail sent? Should I get a new driver's license and re-register my car, when I really have nothing tying me to Raleigh? I'm intentionally homeless for a bit, but the logistics are killing me! [more inside]
