Coming in at #12 in the 25 Best Cities for Shopping list, Austin is touted for having centralized shopping that makes it easy to walk around and visit some great stores and places to eat. Austin topped Philadelphia, Boston, Houston and Dallas on the trendy fashion magazine’s shopping list.
Downtown Austin and South Congress Avenue are mentioned as the hotbeds, with a few local stores highlighted as places to try. If you’re thinking about moving to Austin, you’ll want to be close to the conveniences of shopping, employment and some great restaurants. There are several quality condos that make living in Downtown Austin affordable and easy. With an emphasis on arts, entertainment and music, there are plenty of fun things to do without having to stray too far from home.
Kudos to Austin for making the top 25. If you’re near South Congress Avenue or Downtown Austin this weekend, you might celebrate by going shopping.
