Information About Austin Apartments
On the banks of the Colorado River, a city once known as Waterloo began in 1830. By the end of the decade, this sleepy hamlet was chosen to be the state capital and was promptly renamed after the widely known Father of Texas, Stephen R. Austin. Austin grew to be the fourth largest city in the state of Texas and after a lull in economic growth after the depression, Austin flowered during the eighties and now plays host to many large corporate interests such as Dell and Whole Foods Market. Austin has a diverse mix of people within its borders and offers to the world a selection of artists, professors and performers, not to mention business magnets and political powerhouses. It also plays host to many festivals, such as the widely acclaimed South by Southwest Festival that celebrates music, film, and artistic endeavours for the world to enjoy. Well, you have decided to make this wonderful metropolis your home and you need to find rental accommodation that will not only please you, but provide you with the necessities of life you so crave. Your budget should also be a consideration. So where are the best spots to rent an Austin apartment?
With a population of nearly two million people, you might guess there is a lot of territory to choose from when you are doing an Austin apartment search. If money is no object and you feel like living in opulent style, you may want to consider renting a gigantic house in the Bremmond Block District that was the creation of Austin banker, Eugene Bremmond. Of course, we are not all millionaires and need to find more affordable housing so that we can live and eat at the same time.
If you are interested in the revitalized nature of a city and want to see what is up with the renovations and new business opportunities offered by incentives, you may want to check out the East Sixth Street District, a nine-block stretch that has been undergoing a facelift for the last decade. It has funky shops and galleries with many local artist and international artist exhibits that are sure to please just about anyone, no matter what their palate prefers.
In the Guadalupe District, you will find Austin's memorable stretch often referred to as the 'Drag.' This area runs from the university to Town Lake and has a reputation for being the city's most trendy and fashionable shopping and entertainment district.
Perhaps you want something a little more out of the way, but still accessible. There is always the Zilker District that is home to Zilker Park and the south shore of Town Lake. This is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Austin's lively nightlife and city, but you can easily get into town and enjoy all it has to offer from this location. Not to mention that this district is constantly being improved and redeveloped to meet the changing needs of its residents. Now all you have to do is choose where you want to be and find your apartment in Austin.
