Local Reviews

There isnt really anything unique. There arent any interesting places to go hang out with friends or family.

It is great to take morning and evening walks and there are a lot of teees so in the summer there is a lot of shade when it gets hot.

The stores are very nice to have in walking distance and there are plenty of places to go to or do. Jobs are always available if you need work close to home

We have a lot of local entrepreneur in the area super friendly just a good place to be. And i don't we keep Austin wired

I like the location compared to everything else in Austin. I also like the proximity to stores and parks. There's also a close library and my mom lives nearby.

I like how eclectic it is. Our neighborhood is colorful and vibrant, with a mix of traditional, cottage like, and modern homes. There are also plenty of (expensive) small-business owned restaurants and drink stations. Every one with their own creative spin. I've actually started to feel like i don't belong with this population. It seems like a town meant for young singles, not young single moms. But it is nearby downtown which I love.
