South Austin Lifestyle

Not only is South Austin home to some of the most vibrant bars and restaurants and shopping in the whole city, but it’s close by most of the desirable outdoor recreations and city parks. Downtown and Rainey Street are almost walkable, Zilker Park and Barton Springs are a bike ride away, and the Austin Botanical Gardens, Long Center and Zach Theater are all close by. As are the running trails and kayaking available at Lady Bird Lake.
South Austin residents get to enjoy being near the center of everything, when the city isn’t busy coming to them they’re geographically close enough to experience the rest of the Austin while seldom leaving their own neighborhoods.
