Sloping gently down to a view of the Texas Capitol, it's a grand avenue littered with restaurants, shopping, bars, and events. The neighborhood is especially appreciated for its unique blend of old and new, with historic homes side-by-side with modern condos and apartments.
There’s so much to do in this vibrant community that there’s really no reason to leave! Boutique shopping, great food and live music make this one of Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods.
This eclectic and hip neighborhood, often referred to as "SoCo," is situated south of Lady Bird Lake and the Colorado River and north of Ben White Boulevard. Major highways, including I-35 and Highway 290, are easily accessible, making travel and commuting hassle-free.
Just across the river from downtown, life in South Congress provides easy access to downtown for work or play. Head east and you’ll reach I-35, the major north/south artery that runs through Austin and connects it to San Antonio and the northern suburbs.
While there is no rail line on South Congress, there is a bus route that extends from William Cannon to the south, through South Congress Avenue, and nearly as far north as Wells Branch.
