Walking, even driving, down South Congress is just awesome. If you love unordinary shops and things then this is a must for you!

“Everything That's Happening is Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

This area is within walking distance to the Capitol, the infamous 6 th Street, and Rainey Street. This is home to Home Slice Pizza, which serves a variety of piazzas a la New York Style. There are a variety of antique shops and vintage clothing shops in this area also. Those who are lucky to live in this area have a variety of things to do.

“Interesting Strip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Long strip to walk and peek into shops...Art, Boots, Stetsons, antiques, candy stores, souvenirs, bookshops....most of the sidewalk is in full sun, so plan accordingly in the scorching temperatures!
