Welcome to the south, y’all.

If you live south of the river, you know the TRUTH… Living in South Austin is like winning the jackpot. From being a short drive to some of the city’s best food to endless protected green space in our neighborhoods, living in South Austin is where it’s at.

Let me just hit you with a few key points to back up my opinion:

Zilker Park.

Barton Springs Pool.

Midway Foodtruck Park.

Sculpture and Twin Falls.

Salt Lick.

South Streets are the Best Streets: Congress, Lamar, First… Need we go on?

Besides the Austin staples, the reason non-Austinites travel and move to our great city, South Austin has hidden gems that us Southies don’t take for granted.

A few of our outdoor parks for kids and families:

Little Stacy Park :: wading pool, playgrounds and tennis courts
