A walk along a hip strip of Austin

South Congress neighborhood | Austin

(Austin) — Austin keeps going and going. And growing and growing. I know all my local friends bemoan the influx of new people, Californication and other bad elements, but really, there is so much cool stuff going on here, it puts most of the rest of the country to shame. Celebrate it.

Make sure you check out the South Congress retail strip, uhhhh along South Congress. So many cool shops to browse and buy. Dip into the housing stock around there, some of the best in the country.  From the food truck yards to the shops to the restaurants, a great place to kill a half a day and walk away feeling good about what’s goin’ on. And humble your own neighborhood. Everyone’s friendly, the vibe is good. Enjoy.

8-Track soundtrack of my parents and my childhood.
As my great friend Nancy says: “We learned songs with the skip in them.”  (Obviously dating myself here….)
