North Central Austin

This unofficial district caters to the students of the University of Texas and has plenty of dining and shopping options.

“North Central” isn’t even a thing, but that doesn’t stop the real estate agents from raving about its well-kept, tree-lined streets and “location, location, location”. NCA illustrates what gentrification can do to once humble neighbourhoods. The high-end shops in The Domain and Arbor Walk malls confirm that you’re in Austin’s high-tech boomtown. Grab a breakfast taco from a food truck then duck into the book and record shops along “The Drag” near the UT campus.
