SoCo District, Austin

4.3
With its boutiques, antique stores, eclectic shops, galleries, music venues, and restaurants, SoCo District presents a hipper side of offbeat Austin. Shop for genuine cowboy boots and satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade ice cream. Sample Tex-Mex and ethnic cuisines at a food truck, or sit down for a meal at one of the many restaurants lining the street. The neighborhood is not within walking distance of the city center, so use public transportation or a taxi to reach it if you don't have a car.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
