Lakeway – Hill country sunsets

Lakeway, only 30 minutes from downtown, features some of the most spectacular Austin hill country and lake views.   Once a sleepy retirement community and hippie hangout (heard about Hippie Hollow?),  Lakeway’s transformation into a bustling urban microcosm is being fueled by people seeking a relaxing Austin lifestyle and exemplary Lake Travis and Leander schools.  Jobs abound with the opening of the Lakeway Regional Medical Center.

South Austin – The heart and soul of weird

South Austin is where weird meets chic.   Modern condos nestle beside 2 bedroom bungalows hailing from the 50’s.   South Austin is where the movement started as a stomping ground for the 50,000+ University of Texas students.  It’s replete with funky neighborhoods with character to spare:  Travis Heights, Bouldin Creek, Zilker, Barton Hills, SoCo (South Congress) and South Lamar.  South Austin is home to lots of very interesting shops, (check them out at the street party every First Thursday), cool eateries like Tuti Fruti, Doc’s Bar and Grill and Guero’s Restaurant which features live bands
