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 ..

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.

Pros: The bats are a free attraction to see when visiting Austin.
Cons: The smell on the bridge can be disturbing.

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.

The West University neighborhood of Austin, Texas is mostly a residential area made up of apartment, fraternity and sorority housing with a large population being in their early 20's.

Caswell Tennis Center is a large public tennis facility on the southwest side of the neighborhood and abuts a large green space that contains a Frisbee Disc Golf course, running trails, small swimming pool, volleyball courts and picnic facilities.

West University borders west of the University of Texas district, making West University a prime area for college students to live in Austin. Guadalupe Street is the largest thoroughfare of the area and runs the length of the neighborhood, next to the U.T. campus. Guadalupe Street is referred to as the "Drag" and has a number of shops and restaurants, as well as two large churches on its southern end.

The entire neighborhood is filled with large oak trees, historic homes and quaint cafes. It is definitely one of the preferred areas to live in for students of the University of Texas, as the campus is a short walk away.
