Clarksville may sit so close to the big-city atmosphere of Downtown Austin that you can glimpse the skyline from certain parts of the neighborhood, but its overall vibe feels a world away. Originally founded in the early 1870s, this community’s sense of liberty, community, and deeply-rooted history pervades its sidewalks today as much as it did back then.
Decked out with cute, porched bungalows, old-school markets, and pharmacies with retro 1950s signs, it's the kind of place where strolling to the same coffee shop everyday (we recommend Medici Roasting) while passing flower-lined gardens and waving at your neighbors is a distinct reality.
Interesting boutique shops pop up on every corner alongside low-key studio office spaces and some of the city’s best high-end dining institutions — all places so pleasant it feels like a rarity to see someone without a positive attitude walking around Clarksville, even on a rainy day (which, we should mention, seldom happens in Austin).
