About SoCo | Travis Heights | Bouldin | Zilker

Travis Heights, South Congress, Bouldin Creek, and Zilker lie south of Town Lake & share the 78704 zip code. These neighborhoods have the best of both worlds: a close proximity to downtown Austin and Ladybird Lake, access major Austin highways, diverse restaurants and bars, and a vibrant entertainment scene. A sign of its progressiveness, South Central Austin is constantly developing to keep up with its innovative population. Much of the area’s charm stems from its diverse real estate: numerous original Craftsman bungalows and Victorian homes built in the early 1900s sit alongside contemporary renovations and modern new construction. Townhomes and condo developments are also plentiful. While the population is predominantly young adults, excellent schools and an abundance of parks contribute to the increasing number of young families. The best way to define the chic and energetic population of South Austin would be through its own term: “the 78704”.

Neighborhood Details

Travis Heights—located directly across the river from downtown Austin—is bound by Lady Bird Lake to the north, Interstate 35 to the west, oltorf to the south, and trendy SoCo to the west. Development of the area began in the 1920s to provide exclusive housing for the wealthy. Today, Travis Heights is still considered to be one of Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods. With winding tree-lined streets, Victorian-style estates, and an array of parks, Travis Heights offers a great family environment.

Just west of Travis Heights lies the revitalized South Congress district—often referred to as Soco— which is home to many of Austin’s best local restaurants, shops, music venues, and food trucks. The Continental Room, Homeslice Pizza, Magnolia Café and Hopdoddy’s are a few of the most widely recognized establishments of the area. The main road of the SoCo district—Congress Avenue— spans from south Austin through downtown to the state capitol. Such a set up lends many skyline views to the residences, venues, and offices of the area. South Congress began as a rural road in the 1850s, and later grew to become a mecca for artists and musicians in the 1980s. This deep-rooted culture is cherished by the SoCo residents, preserved through flea markets, art exhibits, and farmer’s markets each Sunday and the first Thursday of each month.

Just west of SoCo lies Bouldin Creek—a neighborhood that blends the eclectic charm of South Congress with the quieter life. Streets of Bouldin are mixed with a variety of homes, most of which are walking distance to parks, schools, and entertainment. Residents of the area can enjoy local eateries, such as Threadgil’s and Bouldin Creek Café, as well as large events at nearby venues, like The Long Center and Auditorium Shores.

West of Bouldin Creek across the industry-lined thoroughfare of Lamar St, lies the Zilker neighborhood. Residents from all over Austin can be found kicking soccer balls, paddle boarding, or playing fetch with dogs at the 355-acre Zilker Park. Home to the Austin City Limits music festival, the Kite Festival, and Blues on the Green, Zilker Park offers greenery and river frontage to the Austin outdoors scene. The park also includes Umlauf Sculpture Garden, the Austin Nature and Science Center, 10.1 miles of hiking trails, volleyball courts, and Barton Springs pool—a 3-acre pool fed by natural springs. Many of Austin’s most popular restaurants, including family eateries such as Shady Grove and Maudies, as well as trendy establishments like Uchi and Olivia.

Together, Travis Heights, South Congress, Bouldin Creek, and Zilker lend history, culture, and charm to Austin’s motto: Keep Austin Weird.
