South Congress Shopping District

Couture food trailers, unique shops and a spirited atmosphere characterize this trendy neighborhood dedicated to keeping Austin weird.

Directly across the lake from downtown, Austin's vibrant, creative and hip neighborhood on South Congress Avenue - known as SoCo - brims with things to see, places to shop and bars and restaurants to drink and dine. The neon-colored neighborhood makes a lasting impression, and SoCo's cool attitude guarantees the crowds never thin regardless of the time.

The avenue is lined with funky stores with an Austin feel. Need that hip new item for the house? Stop by Uncommon Objects. Want to become a true Texan? Drop in to Allen's for your very own pair of cowboy boots. What about that crazy costume you've been looking for? You will definitely find it at Lucy's in Disguise.
