Downtown Austin Neighborhood Guide

Walkable · Central · Bustling · Urban

Austin may be known as a space for nature lovers and folks looking to escape the big city vibes of places like New York or Los Angeles, but the Lone Star capital simultaneously provides a sleek, urban atmosphere as well. Nowhere does this quality become more evident than in Downtown Austin, both the cultural center of the city and its literal, physical center.

People who love to live in high-rises with instant access to walkable coffee shops, the best restaurants in town, and classy cocktail bars will thrive here. The skyline changes on a monthly basis due to the booming population size associated with big-time cities (although, considering the size of Austin, those Downtown apartments become even more rare and coveted).

Since this is Texas, this cityscape comes with a twist when you live Downtown — you’re never too far from the scenic, natural beauty of Lady Bird Lake, which serves as the southern border for this neighborhood.

That would be the world famous Sixth Street in Austin. Packed with tons of bars, restaurants, and music venues; it bills itself as the Live Music Captial of the World.
There are numerous walking trails in and around Downtown Austin, including: - The Boardwalk Trail by Lady Bird Lake - Town Lake Metropolitan Parks - Lady Bird Lake - Central Park Walking Track
Absolutely! The Texas State Capitol building serves as the centerpiece for Downtown, although that's not all there is to do. World-famous Sixth Street runs through Downtown, featuring some of the city's best bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. Austin is known for live music, and in Downtown you will find no shortage of that.

Apartment listing websites can be great for preliminary research, but working with a Locator allows you to ask questions, get personalized suggestions, find buildings you might not have found on your own, find the best rent discounts, and ultimately sign a lease in a place that you love with zero stress and absolute confidence.
