“Avoid 6th street and go to the rest of Austin!”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Austin is a beautiful city and there are nice restaurants, bars and shops in the center. BUT I have never been hassled by so many drunken aggressive beggars on a Sunday afternoon as I was last week. We literally left Austin after 5 minutes of this harassment to head back to a far safer feeling Dallas. Avoid 6th street till the bums are gone!

“Great live music and bar scene”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

If you love live music of all genres, then Sixth St in Austin is the place for you. Sixth St is a several block long district just off the campus of UT, packed with bars. Every other place has live music, and you find just about any type of music you like.

A very young crowd, filled with fun, beautiful people !

“Quirky street”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

This is party central, but be careful, as in the past 3 or 4 years has become very dangerous. Walk in a group, and keep your head up - not texting, Be aware of groups of 3 or 4 young men. They attacked my son and the police are no help. The same group attacked several times last year.
