Austin's Entertainment Center
Arguably the most well known (and fun) street in Texas, the seven blocks of 6th Street between Congress and IH 35 is the center-piece for most of Austin's music and art festivals. Its diverse entertainment options including bars, restaurants, music venues, tattoo parlours, art galleries and more help draw an endless stream of students, locals, out-of-towners and festival revelers. Often compared to New Orlean's Bourbon Street, it's the place to be year-round especially during big events. Staple events like the Austin Mardi Gras celebration, SXSW and 6th Street's Halloween celebration showcase the diversity and personality of the city. For those who want to stay within walking distance of 6th Street Entertainment District, the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown is located just a block away.
