Downtown Austin real estate has become a popular choice for many Austin residents. Imagine looking out of your kitchen windows only to be eye level, several stories high, with other sky scrapers. Or, imagine having only to walk out of your front door and be a few minutes away from attractions, such as Zilker Park, Austin City Limits, Lady Bird Lake and its Hike and Bike Trail, a great place to get in a day’s work out or to try your hand with standup paddle boarding. This is downtown Austin—a great location for those loving the fast paced lifestyle or for those who simply just want to be close to it all. Raising kids? No problem! Downtown Austin is part of the Austin Independent School District, which contains a great selection of schools. And, when your kids are old enough, you will be attending many Austin High games. Speaking of football, why don’t you take that less than five minute drive (assuming heavy traffic) and watch a UT game. Not a big sports fan? Check out the Violet Crown theatre located in the AMLI building on 2nd street. Living downtown also allows for a short walk to Whole Foods, or a variety of amazing restaurants, such as Z Tejas, Three Forks, Winflo, Tacos & Tequila, Moonshine Grill, and many more. Let’s not forget the nightlife; with Sixth Street and Rainey Street nearby, living downtown affords residents the ability to enjoy themselves without needing to worry about walking far, let alone driving. However, living downtown also allows residents the peace and quiet they are deserved in the comfort of their own homes. Downtown Austin real estate is truly the one place in Austin where being close to it all and having it all intersect.
