Ranked by Forbes magazine as one of America’s Top Hip Neighborhoods in America, East Austin offers a diverse culture of lifestyles. Residents live in funky old bungalows, contemporary lofts, and beautiful historical homes. Many eastside neighborhoods are speckled with restaurants (from classic Mexican to upscale dining), coffee shops, bars, food trailers, music venues and farmer’s markets. Urban redevelopment has been occurring in this dynamic part of town for over 10 years and continues to flourish. Some events to check out: The Mueller Sunday Farmer’s market (music and family fun), the Eastside Studio Tour (hundreds of artisans open up their art spaces) and Cinema East’s Outdoor Summer movie night (a cool reprieve).
