6th street was fun but a lot of aggressive homeless near the old area of 6th. You need to go there for the historical aspect of it. But, there were some other areas downtown that we enjoyed to get our drinking on, like the warehouse...More

Amazing area, great places to eat/drink, great places to hangout. This typically would be the heart of the city - you can keep walking around the area late in the evening. Friday and saturday nights post 10 PM till 2 AM is a great experience....More

6th east of Congress is totally different to west and the other streets in the vicinity. I felt really uncomfortable walking it as it felt quite threatening with hustlers trying to get you in bars and beggars pleading for money. Little sign of any security.

This is your spot, every Friday and Saturday night! During the day this strip of 'dirty' 6th is great, awesome restaurants and bars. Weekend nights is amateur night, if you are +30 go to Rainey, you'll have a better time.

We enjoyed walking around and sizing up what bar we might enjoy for our evening out. The staff working the various bars are entertaining and made for a fun night. Once it's dark though, the lack of police or security was a bit unsettling.

A few tourist shops mixed in among a bunch of bars. If you're into the bar scene, you can find one to your liking. There is a large game and pinball arcade.

We went here during the day to take a look. It was definately not our scene and after being approached by a large number of homeless individuals, we left. I am sure it would be a great party place for the college crowd in the...More

Heard so much about going here for shopping and souvenir items and the nightlife. Well we had a GPS and everything and never found it. After almost an hour of driving through the streets we finally gave up

I guess many would say the Driskoll but there are a number of 4/5star hotels close to 6th Street. Personally I wouldnt be hung up on staying specifically on 6th St. Maybe go online to see what is available nearby at best... More
