I guess Austin just doesn't do it for me. I've been there a couple of times now and neither time has been overly impressive. There are too many homeless people walking around and I was there on Saturday and one of them actually asked my sister in law for a piece of her pizza. What the hell?

This place has the ability to be great or to be awful. Great because there are so many people to meet, listen to music and have a good time. Awful because we saw a lot of people stupid drunk and a couple of altercations. This place is really neat for a group of friends.

So much to see and do. Alot of bars and shops, almost like a mini MadiGras. Reminded me of South St. in Philadelphia only with more music. Totally a must see. Can't wait to go again. Make sure you go with a full wallet!

This is the most popular Barhopping street in Austin, from side to side there are bars, but you also have some restaurants and even a billiards/pool hall. As a frequent traveler to Austin, I recommend east 6th Street (east of the Driskill Hotel) for the young collage type while west of the hotel or Congress Avenue is more for the... More

After dark this street becomes the playground of crazy, drunken college students and 20-30 somethings out for a night of revelry. It closely resembles the famous Bourbon Street in New Orleans, in my humble opinion. Around the corner is a homeless shelter and the folks who frequent it mix in with everyone else on 6th street so watch yourself. Lots... More

6th street has blocks of bars and little shops. There is everything from Honky Tonks to small bars with live music. We had a blast there and is a great place to walk around listen to music and have a couple of drinks. You get a lot of kids from the near by University of Austin but that adds to... More

I am over the whole nightlife but if you're into it, It's a MUST! Variety of people, music and food.

6th street is an absolute must to visit while in Austin. I have heard it called the Bourbon St of Texas and that is a fairly good description. It is definitely more for the younger, hipper crowd but if you like to people watch then you will have more than enough to keep you interested...at any age. Don't be fooled... More
