South Austin has its own reputation and it's all good! Any day or night of the week is a good time to head south. With established neighborhoods in Circle C, Shady Hollow, Olympic Heights, Hillcrest, and several emerging communities in between, many are planting themselves in this part of the city, 15 minutes from downtown, 25 minutes from Texas State University in San Marcos, and (most importantly) close to the Salt Lick in Driftwood toward Wimberley and Dripping Springs. Clearly a mixture of the old and new, South Austin's 78748 zip code was recently called the fastest growing zip code in the United States. !!! And even though it's really closer to the State Capitol than it is to Shady Hollow, South Austinites claim SoCo, Austin's South Congress Avenue, where "everything" is (from Guero's Taco Bar, to Lucy's Fried Chicken, and Kendra Scott to Perla's and Homeslice Pizza and SoCo much more) as a part of their "hood." With 100 people moving to Austin every day, South Austin offers a variety of homes for the buyer who wants to be...everywhere.
