Central Austin Neighborhood Guide

Young · Walkable · Popular · Lively


When you hit Central Austin, you’ll know right away you landed in Longhorn territory. From the massive football stadium, which packs in crowds of tailgaters every fall, to the burnt orange glow of the UT Tower, the University of Texas at Austin dominates this area just north of Downtown. And, with its close proximity to all academic buildings — not to mention, the infamous strip of bars and restaurants known as “The Drag” — there’s no doubt it attracts a collegiate population.


However, the gorgeous, historic houses in this area would be perfect for small, growing families as well, especially in the section known as Hyde Park. The architecture there spans the gamut from peaked-roof Victorian classics, to hip, quaint bungalows. Yet, despite the different styles, a love of greenery mixed with a modern attitude abounds, creating a place where old magnolia trees line the blocks alongside progressive political banners and signs.


Yes, the University of Texas at Austin has their campus in Central Austin, bringing lots of life to the area. In addition to UT, Central Austin is home to various music venues, fine dining, museums, and nightlife.
Central Austin often refers to Downtown and surrounding central neighborhoods. A more official definition would be the area north of the Colorado River, west of I-35, east of the Mopac Expressway, and up north until about 51st Street.
