A city full of surprises, Austin is both one of the country’s best cities for catching a great band live and home to the only stateside Formula One race. And, of course, there’s Austin’s famous resident bat colony, which lives under the Congress Avenue Bridge. See, there’s something for everybody here - from the rabid music fan to the bat-lover who’d really prefer not to be described as “rabid.”

Neighborhoods in

Austin

SoCo (South Congress)

Austin’s hippest neighborhood, SoCo (as in South Congress Avenue) has everything you would want in an artsy, bohemian dreamland. From unique boutiques offering one-of-a-kind finds to vintage shops to food trucks offering some of the city’s most innovative dining, SoCo is definitely unlike anywhere else, especially anywhere else in Texas. Daytime fun is easy to find, with plenty of lush parks and scenic Lady Bird Lake within walking distance. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, or if you’re forcing yourself to do something active to rationalize your decadent brunch plans, you can scale the walls at Crux Climbing Center or take a paddle board out on the water. But be sure to save some energy for later; SoCo’s legendary nightlife is not to be missed. Catch a show at the iconic Continental Club, ride a mechanical bull, or enjoy a cocktail and a little dancing at one of SoCo’s favorite bars.

Holly Neighborhood

Austin’s Holly neighborhood features lively music venues, restaurants, bars, and great nightlife. Dotted with lots of green spaces and parks with great trails to hike and bike, like Lady Bird Lake and Fiesta Gardens (site of several large festivals), Holly is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin proper. You get a quieter neighborhood with plenty of fun with quick access to downtown’s major music venues and sites.

Central Austin

A favorite of locals for its proximity to UT Austin and all the highlights of Downtown, Central Austin combines big-city attractions with a small-town vibe. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the suburbs while being just a few minutes’ drive from the Central Market, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Texas State Capitol, and numerous parks. While there’s plenty to do within walking distance, you may want to have a set of wheels to further explore Austin.

Spice Forest

Just a 20-minute drive north of Austin’s city center, this residential area offers a quiet, safe atmosphere and plenty of things to do. From shopping at The Arboretum to hiking the Bull Creek Greenbelt, this suburban area is anything but boring. Within just a few minutes’ drive are highlights like Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park, the Austin Aquarium, and the iconic Oasis On Lake Travis restaurant.

North Side

Nestled between the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Capitol, the North Side has a cool mix of laid-back college culture and big-city sophistication. You’ll find some of the Austin’s best museums here, like the Blanton Museum of Art, as well as sprawling parks and scenic walking trails. Dining and nightlife range from student haunts to classy restaurants, all with a touch of Austin’s signature uniqueness.
