Austin boasts some of the most eclectic neighborhoods in Texas, with attractions that range from trendy boutiques, art galleries, and health-food eateries to authentic old buildings, antique and curiosity stores, and gritty bars, popular for their great local music.
Urban chic communities
Stroll through the shaded streets of Austin, and you’ll encounter urban chic communities raised on hip-slapping, hand-clapping, live music bands. You’ll be able to feast on tacos, falafel, and barbecued ribs, prepared and sold from mobile food vans.
Factor in vintage retail stores, access to networks of wilderness trails, and proximity to the Colorado River and Lake System, and there are a handful of Austin suburbs that are, indeed, cooler than cool.
