South Austin Apartment Living
When I first contemplated moving to south Austin, I’ll admit I wasn’t very fond of the idea at all. My search for South Austin apartments almost never got off the ground. I honestly would have rather lived anywhere else. The only things I’d heard about South Austin my four years in Austin were bad things, mainly involving criminal activity. Having lived near Stassney Lane and South Congress Avenue for nearly eight months now, I can tell you I could not have been happier to be so wrong.
It is true, south Austin apartment living is like a whole different world…in a good way. Since moving into my south Austin apartment home, I’ve been able to discover a whole new side to this beautiful city of ours. No, there is not as much burnt orange down here as I was used during my glory days in West Campus, but that’s about the only complaint I have. I’ve had the opportunity to discover tons of local cuisine, most of which has quickly implanted itself among some of my all-time favorite eateries. Chain Tex-Mex restaurants give way to local and family-owned operations. Service seems like it comes with a slightly larger smile, and touch more gratitude the farther you get from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
South Austin offers a comfortable, slightly more conservative side to Austin. Everything is a little slower, and a lot less stressful. It is home to two of Austin’s Wal-Mart Supercenters; a friend to any fresh college graduate on a tight budget. The thing about many of the apartments in South Austin is their age. Within the last decade, the population of south Austin has grown exponentially, meaning many of the communities are brand new, or only a few years old. South Austin provides an affordable, modern alternative to the more expensive and slightly older mainstays of West Campus and surrounding areas.
Your South Austin apartment will have a unique ability to make you feel completely disconnected from city life, yet still be less than a 15 minute drive from the city’s hub. Being a frequenter of central Texas’ abundance of floatable rivers, leasing a South Austin rental offers an easy commute to some of our favorites, like the Blanco and Guadalupe Rivers, without moving us far away from our favorite Austin spot – the Barton Creek Greenbelt.
All in all, South Austin apartments are not only affordable, but they offer up an entirely new living experience.
