Austin is a vibrant city with everything from hot nightlife-centric neighborhoods to quiet, family-friendly areas. If you’re a live music or craft beer aficionado, you'll feel right at home in areas like Rainey Street and South Lamar. Looking for a place outside of the hustle and bustle of ATX? Check out the hip suburbs of Hyde Park or Upper Boggy Creek. On your next group trip to Austin, rent a few buses and explore these neighborhoods for fun additions to your group itinerary:
Just south of Downtown Austin along Lady Bird Lake, the Rainey Street Historic District is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Austin, offering unpretentious Austin nightlife at its finest. Think food trucks, patio bars, backyards, great drinks, and overall laid back vibes. Many of the bars and restaurants have been converted from bungalow-style homes into popular nightlife spots. Chow down on brunch with live music at Geraldine’s or have beers and bratwursts in Banger’s massive backyard. Wherever you go in Rainey Street at any given time of day, you’ll be sure to have plenty of live music to choose from.
Downtown Austin is a sprawling area with multiple districts bordered by Ladybird Lake and the University of Texas, Austin. Rent a shuttle and zip around to neighborhood highlights like the Texas Capitol, the Bullock History Museum, the Red River Entertainment District, and bustling Sixth Street. Downtown is your go-to place for finding a little bit of everything— expect to see a healthy mixture of posh lounges, dive bars, live music venues, and nightclub/restaurant mashups. You’ll find popular music venues like Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater and Esther Follie’s along with historic Austin eateries like Stubbs BBQ.
For some southerners, SoCo may mean Southern Comfort. In Austin, SoCo could still refer to Southern Comfort, but people are likely talking about South Congress Avenue and not the whiskey liqueur. South Congress Avenue is loaded with unique shops and great local restaurants, making it prone to lots of foot traffic but also a popular location for people watching. From old school music venues like The Continental Club to classic cowboy shops like Allen’s Boots, South Congress is the heart of what keeps Austin weird.
Zilker and Barton Hills are separated by neighboring areas that boast a similar atmosphere. The two neighborhoods are filled with beautiful green spaces that are popular with locals for outdoor recreation. Zilker Metropolitan Park with its many activities, Barton Creek, and the Barton Creek Greenbelt attract thousands of visitors looking to hike, run, fish, or just cool off in the shade from the Texas heat. Zilker and Barton Hills are perfect locations for visitors who want access to nature but also want trendy Austin spots just steps away. If Downtown Austin and the surrounding areas are too busy for you, Zilker and Barton Hills are probably more your speed.
Looking for small-town charm in a big city? Hyde Park is where you want to be. The quaint neighborhood is close to the University of Texas, Austin, making it a highly-coveted location for graduate students, young families, and professionals. Hyde Park doesn’t have the big, loud crowds of Downtown or SoCo, but sometimes a change of pace is nice. Hyde Park is home to beautiful historic districts that include Victorian, Tudor revival, and Queen Anne architectural styles. You’ll have peace and quiet in Hyde Park but easy access to all the best Central Austin and Downtown Austin locations.
