Austin at it's best: Austin is also known for it's dining excellence. Within a short distance are several of Austin's move famous eateries. Chuy's Tex-Mex and Shady Grove and are all within a mile, and Austin's most famous sushi restaurant, UCHI, is just over a mile away. If espresso is your thing, look no further than Austin Java Co, about a mile away.
Recreation activities nearby are plentiful. During the summer there is live theater Thursday - Sunday nights at the Zilker Hillside Theater and there are also performances Wednesdays - Sundays most weeks at Zach Scott Theater just under a mile away. Live music is all over Austin and one of Austin's most storied venues, The Saxon Pub, is about a mile away! And then there is live music with a great dance flood and karaoke at the popular High Ball next door to the Alamo Drafthouse for watching movies while being served food and beverages - all just over a mile!
Needless to say, if you know Austin I'm just preaching to the choir. But if you've never visited here then you are in for a real treat!
