Second Street District

Second Street District

Austin's city center holds more than commercial high-rises and government offices—urban lofts, sidewalk eateries and local boutiques abound, particularly in the Second Street District. Running from the Austin Children's Museum west to Ballet Austin, the area within this three-block radius provides an alternative shopping experience to the standard indoor mall. Trendy clothing, home dÚcor and one-of-a-kind jewelry meld with healthy cafes, coffee shops, wine bars and tasteful restaurants like Cantina Laredo to create a retail oasis complete with downtown loft apartments nearby. Austin's green City Hall complex adds a stately element to the Second Street District, while another popular shopping area, South Congress Avenue, is just a few blocks south. read more about Second Street District
