Super fun area of Austin to visit. So many things to do and see. The vibe is very hippy and earthy. So much to look at and do!

We enjoyed popping in and out of boutiques. Plenty of goodies to look at and plenty of choices for a bite to eat.

You can window shop, play in the stores, and eat some amazing food! Easily one of the best places to take friends or family that are visiting Austin

We'll we were tourists, so we fit right in. Cool shops, and some unique spots to eat, and some of the best people watching in Texas, what more could you ask for in an area like this. Get a Cupcake at the Airstream while you're there too.

Need better signage. We found ourselves in some areas that appeared less than safe for tourist. We really wanted to see this area but decided to go back to our hotel

I have visited this area of Austin many times. The antique and curio shops are very interesting an different. They have a flavor all their own.

Loved all the eclectic shops! There are plenty of delicious restaurants around, no matter what you are in the mood for. Visited on a Sunday and heard live music at a few spots along the way. A really fun way to spend the afternoon!

Lots of eclectic stores, restaurants and food trucks. Plus endless people watching. We walked from downtown, but parking looked challenging.

Great place if you are a foodie, on the look out for things that are vintage/retro. They have an incredible candy/soda fountain shop, that's a must just to take you back to your childhood. Great place to people watch as well.
