What It's Known For
South of Lady Bird Lake and east of I-35 lies Southeast Austin, more commonly known as Riverside! This neighborhood is more laid-back and spread out than downtown, and is definitely the place you want to be if you’re into chill bars, hidden gem family-owned restaurants, funky Austin vibes, and arguably best of all—relatively affordable rent!
TO DO IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN
From relaxed strip-mall hidden gems to staple Austin chains, there are plenty of eats to try and love in Southeast Austin. Start and end your day at Buzz Mill—this 24-hour spot is known for serving up brunch and good coffee in the A.M., and ciders and draft beer in the P.M. Another crowd favorite is Jackalope, a laid-back spot for local beers, cocktails, and pub grub on their dog-friendly patio.
Another perk of living in this neighborhood is the proximity to some of the best outdoor spots the Hill Country has to offer. Lady Bird Lake is where it’s at for hiking, biking, paddleboarding, and kayaking. You’re also within minutes of the miles of trails and views at Onion Creek Metropolitan Park and McKinney Falls State Park.
