Best Part of Town

South Austin

Tired of hearing about the greatness of 78704? Hey, there’s a reason why people tattoo these numbers on their arms and plaster them on the backs of their vehicles. South Austin is indubitably one of our city's shinier gems, with posh little boutiques, vintage shops, and outdoor cafes to while away an afternoon. Even sitting in traffic seems to be more pleasant here, as drivers courteously let one another in and stop to allow pedestrians to cross the street. Parking is free and plentiful, and this ZIP never closes. For a great summation of this hallowed land, may we recommend the following Web site?
