Around East Cesar Chavez

The neighborhood is bound by the Colorado River to the south, I-35 to the west, the main thoroughfare of 7th Street to the north, and the north-south axis of Pleasant Valley Road to the east. There are plentiful and roomy new condominiums springing up on the west side and all down I-35, but beautiful, historic East Austin homes still line the streets on Holly and Haskell. The neighborhood tends to be noisy and boisterous on the north side and quiet and family oriented on the south side.

This neighborhood's location along Lady Bird Lake, hugging the historic downtown area, gives residents multiple fine dining options within walking distance. Not feeling too fancy? Well, you're in luck, because part of what makes Austin famous are the ubiquitous food trucks. For reasonable prices, you can get that cultural experience without having to dress up, whether you're on the way to work or a show.

East Cesar Chavez is popular with the hip crowd, but you will see all kinds of people from all walks of life. In this neighborhood, like the rest of Austin, you will see young professionals, parents jogging with strollers, famous aging rock musicians and actors, as well as some students. Because of the proximity of East 6th Street, East Cesar Chavez also has its fair share of tourists wandering about.

The weekends are an amazing time to live in East Cesar Chavez as East 6th Street is Austin's party central. Many of the most interesting night clubs, food truck lots, and after-hours establishments are found on East 6th Street. It is worth mentioning the music scene here also. Most traveling bands find their way in Austin and East Cesar Chavez has no shortage of venues to host them. From the big stars to the more obscure bands, you are sure to see something you love coming up soon.

Sunday mornings are a different kind of fun in this neighborhood, as the neighborhood recovers from the revels of the night before. A day on the lake kayaking or just exploring can be ended sweetly by going to watch the famous Austin bats in the evening as they leave their nest under the Congress Bridge. It is an unforgettable sight. Head back to East 6th Street for some brunch or an early dinner.
