                                  Car: Not Necessary

                                  South Congress is a neighborhood located on South Congress Avenue in Austin. It is also a nationally-known shopping and cultural district famous for its many eclectic small retailers, restaurants, music and art venues and, more recently, food trucks.

                                  South Congress begins at the Colorado River and Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge and runs due south towards Ben White Boulevard/TX-71. The area is bordered by two historic South Austin neighborhoods: Travis Heights to the east and Bouldin Creek to the west. River City Flats is located in the heart of Travis Heights

                                  Since its humble beginnings in the 1850s, South Congress Avenue has been transformed from a rural country road to the capital city gateway and, finally, to the vibrant shopping district that it is today. Many Austinites attribute its enduring popularity to the magnificent and unobstructed view of the Texas State Capitol, convenience to cultural events at Auditorium Shores and Zilker Park, performing arts at the Long Center, ACL Live, and Zachary Scott Theater.

                                  Year Purchased: 2012

                                  About the owner: My husband Dennis and I have stayed in VRBOs for many years and so I have a good sense of what guests need and want for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We absolutely love the live music scene in Austin, and the youthful, spontaneous nature of urban living. We are avid bikers and spend a lot of time exploring the bike trails and paths around town. Everything we do is within a few mile radius of our home, including our vacation rental. That means we can make sure everything is in top shape for our guests, and respond quickly should any problems arise.

                                  Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                                  What a great location! Nestled in the quiet Travis Heights neighborhood just blocks away from a vibrant happening area of Austin, River City Flats are the perfect size for comfort and functionality, and luxurious enough without a lot of fuss. You also can't beat the convenience of bus and taxi to explore all of downtown Austin, and getting to and from the airport.
