Almost everything to do is within walking distance and with the new bike share station across the street you can easily get anywhere you want to go in minutes. Unbelievable location!

Other things to note

Congress Avenue is the main promenade in downtown Austin. It's the widest street in downtown and runs right through the middle up to the Capitol. Preservation Austin has created a free mobile app, called Historic Austin Tours, to guide you through Congress Avenue. The apartment is in the middle of the tour!

We live down the street from the apartments we rent on Airbnb and enjoy Austin, music, art, food, and designing great spaces. We keep our two Airbnb apartments in tip top shape and well-appointed.

We have lived in downtown Austin for almost a decade. If you need any suggestions for dining, dancing, or live music in Austin just ask.
