“Funky”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

For a taste of the funkiness of Austin, you have to visit SOCO, and especially Lucy in Disguise aka Electric Lady Land

“Fun place to visit”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Interesting area of the city. Numerous restaurants and food trucks along with some shops. Especially good boot shop if you're looking for a new pair!

“Eat. Drink. Shop.”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Quirky signs, street art, funky shops and a dead nice vibe make this a great place to hang.

“Shopping on SoCo”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Love it !! Shopping,shopping, shopping....all kinds of things from cowboy boots to costumes to antiques. Great places to eat - LOVE Perla's Seafood for dinner and dessert at a food trailer....walk on over to the Continental Club for great music, and you can even stay in The Austin Motel - all in walking distance.
We've done this several times for the wk end, always trying new places to eat, drink, and dance !

“What a show”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The atmosphere here is fun. It's a people watcher's dream. I found some great "anteeks" and other unusual goodies at "uncommon objects" store. My cousin bought a fancy pair of boots at the boot shop on one corner. We had a good time and good food all within four or five blocks. Parking left something to be desired, but that's Austin!
