We kicked around up and down South Congress Ave and enjoyed checking out all the shops. There are tons of great places to eat there too.

Everything here is wonderful! Too bad, they open at 10:00 because that is a long time to wait if you're hungry. But, I must say, it's worth it. The Migas are to die for!

Cool, trendy street. Lots of shops and restaurants. We didn't walk it, but would be a cool place to walk around and explore more if I ever make it back to Austin.

I grew up in the South Congress Avenue area over 50 years ago. It's great to see a lot of older stores still there.

This area is a must see if you have never been to the area. A lot of the shops are overpriced for what they are selling. This area does have some excellent food.

This is a cute area of Austin with a lot of cute shops, restaurants, and cafes. Definitely a must-see. The only thing I hated was that parking was hard to find in some places and other places you were required to park backing in diagonally.

Yes, but Uber and Lyft are no longer available. Instead, download the "Ride Austin" app; a similar startup created by mostly former Uber & Lyft drivers.
