About the downtown neighborhood

Whether you want to be close to the night life, enjoy music, or are a foodie, there’s a little something for everyone downtown.  The hike and bike trail of Lady Bird Lake is literally downtown’s backyard, and there are regular festivals and events to enjoy at Auditorium Shores.  You can pick up your veggies at the weekly farmers’ markets or head over to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s for big box grocery shopping.  Don’t want to cook?  Don’t worry.  There are amazing restaurants to discover.  Living in downtown puts you at the heart of what's happening in Austin.

History of the neighborhood

The city’s first 14 blocks were established in 1839.  The north and south streets were named for Texas rivers (except Congress Avenue), and the east and west streets were originally named for Texas trees but are now the numbered streets.  These days Austin is the 11th largest city in the United States, and 12,000 people call downtown home.
