South Austin

Big City Living with Small Town Charm

Welcome to South Austin

Just south of Lady Bird Lake, South Austin maintains a more relaxed vibe with a blend of outdoor spaces, shops, restaurants, and family-friendly neighborhoods.

The jewel of South Austin is the sprawling Zilker Park, home of Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival. Spread over 350 acres, Zilker Park offers hiking trails, a botanical garden, canoe rentals and more. Don’t miss the famous Barton Springs natural swimming pool to cool off during the hot Texas summers!

Adjacent to Zilker, Bouldin Creek is a trendy South Austin neighborhood with bungalow homes and an eclectic mix of coffee shops, food trucks and live music venues. Walk or bike around the neighborhood to take in the murals, gardens and unique local finds.

Just west, South Lamar Boulevard and South 1st Street are lined with popular restaurants, coffee houses, and small local retailers. Hit up long-time Austin restaurants like Matt’s El Rancho and Polvos or browse the vintage goods at Uncommon Objects a little further south. This area has a hip, laid-back vibe compared to the crowded downtown scene.

South Austin is also home to the beloved “SoCo” or South Congress area. Today, it mixes kitschy Austin charm with chic boutiques, eateries, and the iconic “I Love You So Much” mural at Jo’s Coffee. Don’t miss Allen Boots for some uniquely Austin souvenir shopping.

Moving further south along Slaughter Lane and Brodie Lane there are neighborhoods ideal for people of all ages and lifestyles. Here you’ll find amenities like hiking trails, pools, parks and highly-rated schools nearby. Some of the most well-known and popular neighborhoods are Shady Hollow, Travis Country and Circle C Ranch.

In southeast Austin, the popular South Shore District on Riverside Drive mixes apartments, shops, bars and entertainment venues. Young professionals flock to the condos or apartments for easy access to bars, food trucks and outdoor activities along Lady Bird Lake.

Beyond the neighborhoods, South Austin attractions cater to music and the outdoors. Catch a show at iconic Austin venues like Broken Spoke or Continental Club. Go swimming, paddle boarding or kayaking along the Lady Bird Lake trail – and don’t miss seeing the world’s largest urban bat colony emerge at twilight from under the Congress Avenue Bridge.

Compared to downtown, South Austin offers lower density living coupled with stellar amenities right on your doorstep. For homebuyers who want to enjoy Austin’s outdoors, music, and culture at an easier pace, South Austin is a top choice to call home.
