Best Street For The Arts

Congress Avenue

As if we even have to explain this one. La Peña. Tesoros Trading Company. Mexic-Arte Museum. The Paramount Theatre. Live Oak Theatre at the State. Wild About Music Gallery. The Public Domain Theatre & Gallery. The Austin Museum of Art Downtown. The Austin Circle of Theatres office. What other street in Austin offers a couple of major museums, three theatres, a cabaret, an arts umbrella, and a handful of galleries, not to mention a number of restaurants and coffeehouses displaying work by local artists, all in fewer than a dozen blocks? It's an arts lover's dream come true, and it's just getting better. (Come on, Texas Fine Arts Association!)
