South Austin plays a big part in the city’s slogan “Keep Austin Weird” with its eclectic shops, yard art and laid back life style. South Austin is coined by the phrase “South of the River” which is Town Lake or now referred to as Lady Bird Lake. You can rent a paddle board or canoe, feed the many birds, ducks and turtles, and jog or bike the approximate 10.3 miles of scenic trails around the lake. You can also enjoy some of the best live music Austin has to offer at Auditorium Shores, one of our many outdoor venues or Saxon Pub, a local South Austin music hot spot.
