Nowhere But Here.
Looking for that “only in Austin” experience?
As home to the world’s largest urban bat colony and statues of both Stevie Ray Vaughan and Willie Nelson, Downtown lies at the crossroads of wild and weird. A magical mix of entrepreneurs and artists means one-of-a-kind businesses, events and experiences flourish left and right. Beer and a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse, anyone?
From Our Downtown Community
"If you want a taste of Austin, the place to go is Congress Avenue. I love to enjoy a glass of champagne on the balcony of the Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin and stroll around to see the murals along the Avenue. Sunday bike rides followed by refreshments at Royal Blue Grocery also provide for some of the best people watching in Austin."
"There is no better way to spend a Saturday in downtown than at the Farmers' Market at Republic Square Park - I am a huge Dai Due fan. The Lobby Bar at the Four Seasons is also a great place for happy hour before a little bat watching."
