Lots of cute, fun stores and places to eat. Need to rent a car for Austin, as they don't have Uber. No grocery places, either.

A most enjoyable meal had in their outside garden. Waitress was efficient and knew her menu and was able to assist with a meal suitable for a diabetic in our group. We didn't have to wait too long for our meals which were really tasty. There is also inside seating and a small bar area. There was a nice selection... More

We were lead to believe that this was a great shopping area, and it did have some eclectic shops, definitely not the normal, however, not a lot of affordable, airplane accessible, memorable shopping items, not the place to get your take home from Austin, unless you want your authentic cowboy boots.

We were told it's a must see. Unfortunately, by the time we got there most stores were closing. There were a few nooks and crannies along the strip that were great for taking phots.

I was disappointed with with district. I don't know what I was expecting but it did not live up to it. I was expecting more quaint shops and this was not the case, they also were closed by 6:00pm. There are only a few and I just thought there would be more. There are a handful of restaurants of various... More

The SoCo district was a different world from downtown. There are a lot of classic cars to see, which was so nice. We stopped in a restaurant hopdoddy and ordered the parmesan truffle fries with queso (you must do this!!) they were amazing. They have good happy hour specials too! SoCo was very pretty and safe to walk around. Allen's... More

Quite nice place for an afternoon stroll. A lot of shops, dives and people to watch. One of the nicest places in Austin.

We drove over there after being so disappointed with the cheapness of 6th Ave and there wasn't much to see or experience. Our quick dinner was fairly awful but the cupcake trailer nearby looked fun (just couldn't manage sugar that late). Maybe in summer??
