East Austin is quite possibly the most diverse, and in many ways, most intriguing part of the city. It's an older section of the city, and here you'll find a mix of historic homes and new construction; quiet, proud neighborhoods and vibrant nightlife set next to modern condos and commercial development. In the western section, the proximity to downtown Austin makes it an attractive area for young singles to live. The east side has grown its own share of upscale restaurants and watering holes to go along with the many older taco joints and "hole-in-the-wall" bars that were originally there. The east side just across I-35 has become one of the better-kept secrets in Austin, a place for people to enjoy the amenities of central Austin without the central Austin pricetag. This has rejuvenated the area and increased property values. Known as the Williamsburg of the South, East Austin is well worth the consideration for any buyer to live and invest in.
