There is an eclectic vibe to this neighborhood that is made up of families and young professionals. There's always a community event going on and excellent markets for you to check out. Also known as East Downtown, this is where you need to be to check out trendy watering holes, a vibrant art scene and overall laid-back Austin vibes.

Barton Springs

The beautiful part of Barton Springs is that while it is just a short drive from downtown, it feels like a world away. With plenty of swimming hotspots and historic homes, you wouldn't even guess the hustle and bustle of downtown were just a stone's throw away.

This is the life of the city. Whether you're coming in for professional work at the state capital or you are interested in taking in one of the many concerts and shows, the downtown area of Austin always has something for you to do. It is a must to check out if you're only in town for a few days and want to live it up. 

North Austin

North Austin is just north of downtown and gives you excellent access to all of the thrills downtown has to offer, yet you'll be tucked away in a quieter community, if this is something that sounds up your alley. Popular hangout spots include The Domain and Rock Rose Ave for plenty of shopping, bars and restaurants.
