I reviewed this while listed as a different location. But overall, this is one of my favorite places to go shopping or just walk around. The variety of food and shops is hard to beat with any other area of town.

There are lots of shops and places to eat - be prepared to wait in line at the better known eateries. Interesting shops.

really enjoyed the variety and unusual shops. Not a chain store in sight! We especially enjoyed Tesoros and made several purchased.

A fun place to visit. There are lots of antique and vintage clothing stores, galleries, souvenir shops and restaurants. Parking might be a challenge so if your hotel offers a shuttle, you might want to consider it. Be sure and visit Uncommon Objects!

I live in South Austin and within walking distance of the attractions on South Congress. Every time we have visitors, we stroll down South Congress and manage to find something unique that suits their interests. A nice variety of eating places - both sit down and walk up or takeaway. All price ranges. Watching the people is fun as well.
