When most people think of Texas, they think of a land with wide-open spaces that go on for miles. That “everything’s bigger in Texas” ideal often feels untrue in the city of Austin— except for South Austin. No neighborhood in the city feels less city-like and more suburban than here. But, don’t let the signs for PTA meetings and blood drives completely throw you off.
While the residential vibes of South Austin allow you to live the white-picket fantasy, its location, only minutes away from some of Austin’s best hot-spots, allows you to experience the best the city has to offer. So, while the bustling streets of South Congress’ bars and restaurants may be a few minutes drive up the road, you still get to return home to a far less busy (i.e. less noisy) place.
