Neighborhood & Lifestyle
78704. Where funky, meets sophisticated. This is the area that made Austin the laid back utopia that it is today. You have probably heard of South Lamar, and South Congress, but there is so much more to this area, and the deeper you look, the weirder it gets! South Austin’s 78704 zip code has some of the coolest places to hang out in Austin, and some would even argue the coolest on earth. Alright, maybe on earth stretches the truth just a tad for some, but for others, that deep love for south Austin is REAL! It might be the combination of Barton Springs Pool, open year long, grabbing margaritas before hitting the greenbelt, and perhaps throwing in a dash of yoga. Whether you are an outdoors enthusiast or a night owl, 78704 has all your lifestyle needs covered.
Shopping & Lifestyle
Want to enjoy the fine outdoors while also gaining the benefit of exercise? The Barton Creek Greenbelt offers a heavenly place for hiking, picnicking or walks. You can walk all the way to Lady Bird Lake which incidentally is not far away. There are boutique shops down the main drags like south first, South Congress “aka SOCO” and South Lamar. The real fun is when you stumble upon one of the outdoor festivals like First Thursday to pick up a new accessory for your home or just to enjoy live music at one of the outdoor venues to celebrate the warm weather. The 04’s claim to fame is the die-hard love for supporting local crafts people. So many of the goods you will find were made if not here in Texas, here in Austin. Supporting our fellow neighbors and entrepreneurs who make this city so beautiful is, in fact, where the saying “keep Austin weird” originated. After all, buying home accessories or hand made clothing out of a tent at an art festival isn't what most would consider normal, but as Austinites, we choose to favor things that are not so normal!
Dining & Drinking
Well, nothing says “charming neighborhood” like places to grab a bite to eat, and South Austin isn't short of those by any stretch. With a selection of cool restaurants and hidden little dining gems, this part of Austin acts like a beckoning beam for foodies, organic food enthusiasts, or just anyone with a hungry stomach yearning for a delightful meal! Home Slice Pizza, Perla’s seafood, and Hopdoddy’s are some of the must hit places when you come to the city, but don't hesitate to venture to all the food trucks that line Austin’s city streets. Food trucks don't need huge dining rooms, A/C, or some times even table for that matter. Sometimes it’s all about the unbeatable one-of-a-kind flavor that you can’t get anywhere else! Need a recommendation? Try Veracruz Tacos. Order one miga’s taco, one fish taco with the orange sauce on the side, and maybe the hand made Avocado Salsa and chips. We promise you won’t be sorry you did!
Apartments & Accessibility
If you're looking for a “cheap apartment” under $1000.00, you may want to check out one of the other area’s here in town like the lower Eastside, South Austin, or Farwest. As the love for 78704 grows, so do the prices. The good news is there is a wide variety of property sure to meet the needs of anyone looking to relocate. These include smaller more modest communities, to apartments that have upgraded to a fresher modern feel. Then there are the newer more modern properties which will most likely be sure to have washers and dryers, granite or quartz counter tops, and stainless appliances. Oh and don't forget, probably a dog park too. After all, Austin currently seems to be one of the most dog-friendly cities in America. Whether you are looking for bad and boujee “which means fancy for anyone who doesn’t know” or embrace the eclectic organic lifestyle here in 78704, we are sure there will be a fantastic place for you!
