The area is void of chain stores, and it’s full of locally owned shop bars and restaurants. For locals, this is where people are trying the most to “Keep Austin Weird.”

Some 19.7 million visitors go to Austin annually, according to the city’s convention and visitors bureau, drawn by the city’s music and foodie scenes, plus a packed calendar of events that celebrate the Austin spirit; the Keep Austin Weird Festival and 5K run, now in its 10th year, is a highlight of the late-June calendar. Across the Lady Bird lake, you are in Downtown.
