“Great shopping”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Lots of fun little shops and street vendors. Lots of food to choose from. Some places got extremely crowded but based on reviews, probably for good reason.

“A must-see while in Austin”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

If you appreciate the clever and the artsy, you must spend time in the SoCo district. Funky shops, food trucks and businesses with clever names. Even the "graffitti" is great. I appreciated things like the costume shop named "Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds" and the food truck called "Coat & Thai", just as two examples. On the day I visited there was also a great outdoor market/craft fair.

“SoCo is SoCool”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Came from Charleston SC to visit our daughter who lives in the area. We spent a really enjoyable Saturday doing a leisurely walk up and down the area. Especially loved Lucy in Disquise with Diamonds costume shop.

I can see why I have heard so great things about Austin. SoCo is one of the reasons.

Highly recommended to all visitors to Austin to spend time visiting SoCo and its shops and restaurants.
