“FUN, FUN, FUN - Austin Highlight”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

An absolute "must do" for an Austin visitor. It's the heart of Austin at it's funkiest & most relaxed with lots of good shops, food trailers, restaurants, etc. Enjoy! & Don;t forget to go to Home Slice Pizza!

“So much to see...so much to do.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

This place is full of shops that I enjoy just to get away from it all. Uncommon Objects is probably one of the best places to visit - the shop has little 'vignettes' of things for sale, odd things, keep an open mind, you might make a purchase of old postcards or something else.

“Just Like Any Town inTexas”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

South Congress used to be really cool, just on the edge of what you would do. Now it is just a bunch of chain restaurants posing as weird with one-hour long waits and mediocre food. The parking situation is ridiculous.

“Fun”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Young, hip, and fun area of town. We stayed in the San Jose and it was walking distance to all the great little locally owned shops and restaurants.

“Austin Funky”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

South Congress is a mix of everything that makes "Keep Austin Weird" going strong. From funky resale shops to fantastic food, you just can't go wrong with a visit to SoCo. Dress comfortably, you will be doing a lot of walking, but it's well worth it. Come find your treasure on SoCo!
