“Avoid 6th street and go to the rest of Austin!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Austin is a beautiful city and there are nice restaurants, bars and shops in the center. BUT I have never been hassled by so many drunken aggressive beggars on a Sunday afternoon as I was last week. We literally left Austin after 5 minutes of this harassment to head back to a far safer feeling Dallas. Avoid 6th street till the bums are gone!

“Great live music and bar scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

If you love live music of all genres, then Sixth St in Austin is the place for you. Sixth St is a several block long district just off the campus of UT, packed with bars. Every other place has live music, and you find just about any type of music you like.

A very young crowd, filled with fun, beautiful people !

“Quirky street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

This is party central, but be careful, as in the past 3 or 4 years has become very dangerous. Walk in a group, and keep your head up - not texting, Be aware of groups of 3 or 4 young men. They attacked my son and the police are no help. The same group attacked several times last year.
