Local Reviews

The area I live in is especially close to downtown, and downtown Austin is home to both the Capital building and many local one-of-a-kind experiences. I don't go to too many bars, but there are local restaurants and bars on every corner, and a lot of them have been featured in television shows and magazines, including the 'world famous' Sixth Street.

Report nuisances and other noncriminal problems promptly. Examples of these items are junked ? Take away the opportunity for crime. Think about your home, your car and even your lifestyle and ? Introduce yourself to your neighbors. Make a list of names and phone numbers of every neighbor

Close to many nice restaurants. Very green scenery lots of trees and parks nearby. Close to downtown.

There are restaurants and bars that are within walking distance or a short drive . It is also a very safe neighborhood that I can walk around at night

location is close to most of the activites or things you would want to go see and do
