Great collection of eclectic shopping and food. Some pricey, some reasonable. Great walk ending at the Congress bridge waiting for the Austin bats to emerge. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

This was a great street to walk down and shop from local establishments. We ate lunch at Guero’s and then stopped in all the shops down South Congress. Lots of places to eat and hang out in. Was a great day! Highly recommend if you...More

Shopping and the best food in Austin! Why would you need to go to any other area in town? Can be VERY busy and hard to find a place to park. Loved it!

We loved South Congress Ave and wish we had much more time to spend there! There is an almost overwhelming selection of restaurants and food trucks so you should definitely come ready to eat. We came here for dinner one of our nights in Austin...More

South Congress is one of the most walkable places in Austin. Lots of nice restaurants and shops around. It is a very safe area as well.

Which we had found this gem earlier in our Austin visit. Highly recommend magnolia cafe - they don’t start serving mimosas until after 10am on sundays - and this little Italian cafe!!

South congress Avenue is very interesting and enjoyable. I always take friends and family here; they really enjoy the unusual shops and antiques. it is a safe fun place to walk along and window shop or go inside to try on clothes and perhaps buy.

Little shops with products made in Austin. A bit pricey, but fun. Also, some food trucks, ice cream, restaurants and bars. Seems to be a gentrified area. Safe to walk alone on.

I recently met my cousin who was staying at the new hotel on Congress. Breakfast there was ok, not great. We took a stroll on South Congress Avenue and stopped in several shops. Neither of us bought anything. It seems very tourist oriented.

Parking is available, but not enough of it. Look for the Public Parking signs, or take the bus. Don't park in the neighborhoods, or you will be towed. Having said that: here are the treats that await you in a six block long area. I...More
