Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating1
Pros: North Austin, live music, plenty of seating
Cons: North Austin if you live south
Comments: Great Live Music venue. They have 3 rooms. One is a video game, darts, and billiards room. The second room is lounge/restaurant room. Although you can eat in any room, this one has a large bar, booths and tables without the live music playing which promotes a better atmosphere for ..
Review for Austin Zoo wrote by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: Lots of animals, in the Hill Country so great views, train ride
Cons: There was a lack of sanitizer throughout the park, not in Austin so it is a bit of a drive, the store has very little "Austin Zoo" souvenirs, just generic animal/zoo stuff.
Comments: Great zoo, lots of animals. I have been to the zoo during the day as well as the during Halloween at night. Both were great times and the train around the zoo is well worth it. Plan for the day and pack a meal. The zoo ..

Pros: The bats are a free attraction to see when visiting Austin.

Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: The rooftop bar is by far the best feature about Maggie Mae's but the great crowd, the entertainment and drink specials also make this one of Austin's best bars.
Cons: Parking to go out on 6th Street can be a drag sometimes so just plan ahead or don't drive.
Comments: Maggie Mae's is by far one of Austin's best bars. The multi level and multi room bar features a British Pub, multiple stages for live music, courtyard, club room and best of all, the rooftop deck overlooking 6th Street and Austin's skyline. The crowd is young but diverse ..

About South Congress

Boundaries: South Congress Ave. from Town Lake to Oltorf St.
The South Congress district, more commonly called SoCo to the locals, is a mile and a half strip with some of Austin's hottest nightlife, bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and more. The bars and clubs in SoCo reflect their past that doesn't include much glamor, but contains a nostalgic flare. SoCo in Austin has come a long way from past years and is now one of the most frequented places to hang out in the entire city especially with its incredible view of the Downtown Austin skyline. Popular parades like The Texas Independence Day Parade in Austin and events like First Thursdays in Austin, Texas happen on the SoCo strip. First Thursday is one of the most popular events in Austin, which celebrates the first Thursday of every month with what can only be best described as a giant block party. If fun is what you're looking for, there is plenty to be had in the SoCo District of Austin, Texas for both locals and visitors. The more the merrier!
