Nothing special. Somehow dirty street deserve a quick walk around and you have to move on to other beautiful places.

You can find a good time no matter what day of the week. I've been visiting 6th street for many years and I've learned what bars, dining and chill spots suit me best over time. Never visit during a holiday, its not worth the headache unless you're in to that sort of thing.

6th street is a party spot so if you're looking to get drunk head on there. If your looking for ANYTHING more interesting than drunk people, look elsewhere.

Visited on a Saturday night. Not that impressed overall. Dirty, seedy, lots of people trying to lure you into different bars or asking for money.

Went to 6th Street area for my 30th birthday, and found a lot of people having a great time. Multiple places to dance and meet people. I found that most people on 6th seemed to be from out of town.

A great spot to watch the 20 somethings drink till they vomit. Or balance into each other until there is a streetfight. The music is great. But most towns have an area like this.

You can't say you've been to Austin if you have not explored the 6th street at night. This is such a unique experience, compared to the Bourbon Street, in New Orleans.

If you have never been to 6th street, it's worth the experience. Lots of bars to visit, each with their own uniqueness. Prices range from low to high. You can just drink, you can listen to music or go to a dueling piano bar.
