South Central Austin
78704…More than just a zip code! A quick drive down South Congress lets visitors know that living in South Austin is a lifestyle. It has the reputation of being one of the coolest places to live in Austin – and offers a lifestyle where you can walk to dinner, shopping and entertainment. Trailer eateries line the streets and are mixed in with an eclectic shopping, dining and entertainment with the Continental Club and other bars nearby.
Neighborhoods here include the historic neighborhood of Travis Heights with tree-lined streets and stately homes from as far back at the 1920’s, many of which have been updated and renovated. To the west of Congress Avenue and stretching to Lamar is the Bouldin Creek area with its cottages and condos, some renovated and others new construction. Either neighborhood is minutes from downtown, as well as both Zilker Park and the hiking trails of Lady Bird Lake. The grounds of St. Edwards University border South Congress Avenue and it’s a quick hop on the Capital Metro bus line to The University of Texas at Austin or work downtown.
