Tons of awesome shops, bars, and restaurants along with very cool people. I think that’s what makes Austin and especially this area so special is the people. There are cool cities all over but the people (and the food) of Austin always attracts me to...More

Very similar to Nashville and New Orleans. Lots of bars and music at every turn. Lots of energy and great people watching.

Loud and crazy. Just a street full of liquor licenses, plenty to eat and lots of cover bands. Played billiards and had great food.

It used to be a haven for great music. There are still a few spots to visit for that, but besides that avoid. Plenty of other cooler places to visit east, west, and south of there for night time fun and less stench.

I expected more from 6th street by the reviews I read. I prefer Nashville anyway over Austin. 6th street was more of a college crowd atmosphere with pizza places all around. Music was fair but the piano bar by far was the most entertaining.

A lot has changed in the past decades. Sixth Street (Pecan Street) has morphed into an entertainment district with something for everyone. Places to eat and places to drink along with a few music venues to attend. I just like wandering up and down and...More

We like the Embassy Suites right on Congress. Get one of the suites on the upper floors if you have kids, it's worth the splurge! Walk across the street and watch the bats come out from under the bridge, then walk up to... More
