East Austin

Welcome to East Austin

The East Side is known for its eclectic character and charm with its secret bars, funky coffee shops, and countless food trucks on virtually every corner. This is an area that locals love and tourists crave. Hop on your bike to go to your local market for fresh goods, then head over to one of many trails like Govalle Park or Walnut Creek Trail. If art is what you're looking for, swing by Austin Artwalk on the weekend or stop by Canopy Austin arts district to take in the art and local vendors. You can follow the sounds of live music on nearly every street each night of the week.
For an afternoon pick-me-up stop by Palomino Coffee and take in the carefully curated environment while grabbing their fan-favorite Cardamom Mocha. Homes located south of Cesar Chavez and closest to Lady Bird Lake in the Holly District provide plenty of outdoorsy activities in the heart of the city. The Govalle neighborhood, nestled just on the outskirts of the skyline provides a bit of privacy with treelined streets, while still being close to the hustle and bustle of downtown with direct access to the 6th and 7th street corridor featuring culinary favorites including Suerte, Counter Cafe, Ramen Tatsam and Easy Tiger.
Rosewood and Chesnut neighborhoods on the northside of East Austin have easy access to downtown, the Capital, and the University of Texas and feature longstanding restaurant favorites to the locals such as Franklin BBQ, Paperboy, Hillside Farmacy, and Rockstar Bagels.
