I was with a 6'5 300 pound man and we were harassed horribly by the homeless and organization solicitora during the afternoon! The city needs to clean this situation up because tourists do not like to be put in violent predicaments and that is EXACTLY what happened to us. Where are the police at controlling this area??? It really gives... More

Well if your looking for excitement and great food! This is where you have to be, 6th Street, Austin, Texas!

Overheard on sixth street attractive girl to complete stranger. "I'm going to buy you a steak dinner, and then forget all about you" and off they went hand in hand. Friday night on sixth street is like a giant rave, so if you're into that you will enjoy it. Watch where you walk if you like your shoes.

Tons of bars and restaurants for every taste. Very eclectic; people-watching is outstanding. An Austin institution. Gets quite crowded in the evenings, especially weekends. Wide variety of live music available to suit any taste. Definitely a destination stop in Austin.

Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World and 6th Street is part of the reason. Every bar seems to have a stage, or two. I was there for SXSW so it was really crowded, however, clean compared to other cities with these kinds of events. It is really important to note that there are several clubs... More

Went to Austin last year, but didn't make it to 6th street. We made a point this time to go with a cousin who lives in Austin. We went in the early evening before the big crowd is supposed to hit. Not impressed at all. I can see why they call this dirty 6th. It was. While walking down the... More

Spent four days in Austin for a conference. Had the pleasure of walking along 6th street. There is indeed something for just about everyone on this street!
