You will rarely come across an Austinite who does not speak of their city with pride and affection. It’s as if the residents have a love affair with their hometown, and which part of Austin they live in is almost as important as the fact that they live here. To the locals, the individual neighborhoods have personalities of their own, a set of characteristics that make them unique and interesting. From eclectic, Bohemian neighborhoods like SoCo and Bouldin Creek of 78704, through the greenbelt to Barton Hills and Zilker Park, across Lady Bird Lake to high-rise-studded downtown, on over to the manicured lawns and towering old oak trees of Tarrytown and Clarksville, you are in the center of the action but still spoiled with the beautiful outdoors.

Just to the west you will find prestigious West Lake Hills, known for excellent schools and peaceful hill country living only a stone’s throw from the bustling city. In the center of it all is the University of Texas and the youthful energy surrounding the campus. Swing over to the laid back hipster oasis that is East Austin, and up to the Victorian homes and 1950’s bungalows sprinkled throughout Hyde Park, Austin’s oldest subdivision.

Make your way up to the quiet residential streets of Crestview, Allandale and Brentwood before landing in the mecca for upscale shopping and restaurants – Northwest Austin. If it is suburban living you are after, you will definitely want to check out the big three: Round Rock, Pflugerville and Cedar Park. Here you will find newer neighborhoods where you can get more bang for your buck, with loads of retail shopping, dining and entertainment.

But don’t forget South Austin, which has a little bit of something for everyone! You are only separated from 78704 and West Austin by a thin line, but homes are significantly more affordable. You can soak up the funky vibes that have spilled over from 78704, take advantage of fantastic amenities in planned neighborhoods such as Circle C, or watch deer and coyotes out of your kitchen window in nearby Oak Hill. Yet you still reap all the benefits of being close to it all!
