There's a lot to love about Central Austin

Artsy and creative?  We’ve got it in East Austin.  Historic homes with mature trees?  Check out Hyde Park.  Rolling hills and great schools?  Well, that’s Northwest Hills.  High rises and walkable to activities?  Look no further than Downtown. 

We are a diverse city, and each of our neighborhoods has a different vibe, often with a different type of architecture.   Whether you are new to Austin or just looking to explore our great city, we can help you determine where you fit in.  We invite you to explore these Central Austin neighborhoods where we share neighborhood history, provide a peak at sample homes, and offer insights to help you discover your place in Austin.

For simplicity sake, we included some of the smaller neighborhoods under larger neighborhood titles.  Just hold those labels loosely ‘cuz folks here have strong feelings about the place they call home and the name it goes by.
