There's No Place Like Downtown Austin
I have been to seventeen UT football games, 3 Austin City Limits Festivals, and visited the State Capitol twice. I’ve paddle-boarded on Lady Bird Lake and picnicked in Zilker Park. I’ve shopped South Congress, hiked Mount Bonnell, ventured through 6th street, lunched at Franklin’s Barbeque, investigated the Driskill, and swam at Barton Springs Pool. Growing up in Lake Travis, a suburb thirty minutes from downtown Austin, I have had my whole life to explore everything this sought-after city has to offer. Well, here I am twenty years later, and I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface!
It is no wonder nearly 170 people migrate to Austin every day seeking the city’s artistic culture, steady job growth, and active lifestyle. Austin is alive with diversity, not only in its people, but in opportunity. Not just anywhere can you traverse through nature one minute and hit the club the next. What was once just a college town that happened to house the State’s Capitol has evolved into the number one metro area to live in this country, ranked by the U.S. News and World Report.
At the center of this great city is its downtown – the beating heart of Austin, currently housing almost 10,000 classic Austinites that make up our city’s identity. Want to join them but you’re afraid of the cost? Here are the top three reasons why downtown living is unparalleled:
- Convenient Location – Hungry? Need groceries? Want to see a movie? Downtown offers many more options for restaurants, shopping, parks, entertainment, and employment; and the best part is that it’s all within walking distance so you can ditch traffic and get your steps in!
- Nightlife and Entertainment – Austin is home to plenty of neat restaurants and bars that keep the city alive 24/7. Even during the day, the city is always energized with live music and events, such as farmers markets and festivals, ensuring you won’t ever never be short of a good time!
- Amenities – Not only is the city filled with amenities such as beautiful lakes and a stunning skyline, but the apartments are too! Most downtown residences include indoor pools, fitness gyms, business centers, a concierge service, and the most breathtaking views imaginable. Certain luxuries like these are not easy to find in the suburbs.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty convinced downtown Austin is where I want to be and lucky for me, I’ve had the luxury of living just minutes away on UT’s campus for the past four years. Hey, speaking of downtown luxury, oh how we have the place for you…

One of the biggest units in the prestigious Four Seasons Residences, this well-appointed, penthouse-caliber 3BR home is an entertainer’s delight full of unique details, designer upgrades, and a large Chef’s kitchen overlooking the living/dining area.
