Where to Live
This small neighborhood is largely composed of single-family homes built between the 1950s and the 1970s. South 2nd and South 5th are the neighborhood's main streets--and main lines out to the rest of Austin--so expect to pay more to live near these areas. There are a few condominium complexes in the borders of the area, but even these are more expensive than similarly sized units in more remote parts of town simply because of this area's popularity.
Where to Eat
Galindo is not quite large enough to have a true culinary "scene," yet there is one characteristic that ties together its dining and drinking options: local. This neighborhood strongly prioritizes local businesses over national chains and residents are often willing to pay more to eat locally. Quirky options like bicycle soup delivery were born here and vegetarian dining and cafes also have a strong presence here.
What You'll See
Residents of Galindo are fairly diverse in terms of age and background, but overall skew young. Twenty somethings, individually and in couples, tend to browse the local shops or pass through the neighborhood en route to South 1st or South Lamar. Many locals pick this area for its location and walkability, and can be seen commuting on foot or especially on bicycle.
Friday Night Fun
Galindo is tamer than its Southern and Eastern neighbors, but is still eccentric, fun, and uniquely Austin. The community is tight-knit, so it is not unusual to spot families and singles alike heading to one of the area's coffee shops or walking to Bouldin Creek for shopping and dining. Coffee and tea houses are also packed on Fridays, typically hosting acoustic music in a variety of genres.
The Perfect Sunday
Sundays in Galindo are idyllic and laid-back. The Southwest Austin Parks and Recreation Center is a local favorite, although several smaller parks are also in the area. You may find locals picnicking, swimming, or playing outside with children and pets in both the parks and the neighborhood itself.
