Living in Downtown Austin

Nov 25, 2011 No Comments by

In recent years, Austin has experienced a condo boom in and around the urban core.  With the surge of urban living,  downtown has seen an increase in the amount of restaurants, bars, shopping, and entertainment. Austin is a city that is best experienced by living as close to the urban core as possible. This may not be financially feasible for everyone, but our suggestion if you’re moving to Austin is to live as close to downtown while staying within your budget. Access to the parks, festivals, running and biking trails, and arts are essential to your Austin experience.

Although most cities in Texas require you to own a car, Austin has a wide range of transportation from a bike share program, Car2Go car share program, bus routes, and our metro rail. Austin is working hard to create a transportation system that allows people to easily commute in and around the urban core.

The main grocers for downtown occupants are Whole Foods, which is the flagship store and amazing, and Royal Blue Grocery. If you’re living within the urban core, there’s also HEB and Central Market.  Mr. Natural and Natural Grocers are more geared towards the vegan and vegetarian diets. Greenling and Farmhouse Delivery are great services if you’d like to have fresh, local produce delivered to your house. In.gredients is working to become the first package-free and zero waste grocery store in the United States and it will be right here in Austin. No matter your diet and food preferences, you will find a grocer or restaurant in town that will meet our needs.

Austin in general is a gay friendly city. Downtown Austin (78701), South Austin (78704), East Austin (78702, 78722/78723) , and North Austin (78751,78756/78757) are areas that tend to attract more gay guys relocating to Austin.
