If you're a fan of cities with good taste in music and food, then Austin may just be your go-to southern destination. With 250 music venues, it is aptly named "The Live Music Capital of the World". And if you love a meal on wheels, there's a food cart within arm's reach everywhere you go, and they steal the show every time. Arts and culture are at their finest here, with countless creators, curators, entertainers, and thought leaders coming together to inspire awe, action, and the pursuit of knowledge. In a city this vibrant, you deserve an Austin vacation rental that can keep up. Which is where a Stay Alfred travel apartment comes in.
The Neighborhood: Legislature and academia by day, Guadalupe Street fun by night.
Wanting to stay downtown but needing quick access to the University of Texas campus or the Capitol and surrounding museums? The G is your place in Austin! But with a slew of great restaurants, pubs, and boutiques on Northside’s Guadalupe Street, a very walkable strip that’ll take you straight from The G all the way through downtown, the hood isn’t all legislature, history, and academia. In Northside, you get a quieter neighborhood with quick access to the Capitol and the U, but with the best of downtown Austin’s nightlife, music venues, galleries, and historic theaters just a quick stroll away.
The G’s handy Northside location also puts you an easy walk from Austin’s Central Business District, The Museum District, The Red River Cultural District, which features live music venues of all sorts, and you’re also not far from Austin's popular Warehouse District, with its lively bars and great nightlife.
Other cultural highlights near Northside and just steps from The G include The Perry Castaneda Library, the main central library of the University of Texas, The Blanton Museum Of Art, devoted to European paintings, modern American and Latin American Art, as well as contemporary, The Frank Erwin Center, and The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, where you can get your yeehaws with kid-friendly history exhibitions depicting ranch life and the oil industry, and explore the influence of all-black regiments (Buffalo soldiers) on post-civil war Texas.
The G’s Guadalupe Street location also means great dining and shopping. The mile-long stretch of Guadalupe Street adjacent to the University of Texas campus, aka "The Drag," is an eclectic community boasting boutiques with anything from vintage thrift to fashion to Texas Longhorn-only merch. With over twenty restaurants and eateries from Thai to gastropub Francophile fare to Detroit-style pizza to Austin-style Mexican street food, Guadalupe is a great spot to burn calories and put them back on – all just steps from your comfy Stay Alfred travel apartment.
