Soco cottage description
Bring a car if you want to, but you won't need it. From the SoCo Casita (City of Austin license # OL 2012127650) you are less than a five-minute stroll to SoCo's wide sidewalks lined with buskers, artists, craftspeople...many of Austin's best restaurants...and our great, home-grown, uniquely-Austin shops....Got your fill of that? Seven-tenths of a mile to the tree-canopied Town Lake hike and bike trail. Cruise the lake on a pedal-powered swan boat, pole board, kayak or canoe from Lone Star Riverboats. Rent a bicycle and dawdle under the trees less than another mile to gorgeous, huge, naturally-formed Barton Springs Pool. Back at home, stroll three to five blocks to white-tablecloth restaurants Vespaio, Woodland, Perla's... Or grab vittles from Thai food to BBQ to crepes and cupcakes at the Airstream foodie trailers.....Ready to party? A five-minute walk takes you to live music at the legendary Continental Club...Trophy's....Jovita's....Freddie's.....Dance beneath starlit skies and the ancient oaks at Guero's Taco Bar....Need even more variety? Downtown jumps at night and it's one mile away. Enjoy!
