Its diverse population, thriving small business community, live music scene, and local dining makes Austin the new destination to set up your home. If you’re looking to relocate to Austin, here are the top five trendiest neighborhoods to live in.


For a small-town experience that’s still within convenient reach to Downtown Austin, look at the city of Rollingwood. This neighborhood of Austin is known for its 1950s style which was originally a master-planned community. Rollingwood boasts beautiful parks, recreational facilities, botanical gardens, year-round community activities, and hiking trails. This is a very family-friendly neighborhood with award-winning schools. 


Allandale is perfect if you’re relocating to Austin and the size of your home is a big deciding factor. Allandale has bigger lots compared to other neighborhoods in Austin, which is perfect for finding a larger home. It’s known to be very family-friendly with a nice sense of community. Allandale is also minutes away from Downtown Austin, and it’s surrounded by many historic parks. There are also a variety of small businesses here such as independent retail shops and local dining.


Clarksville is the closest neighborhood to Austin’s central business district, so it’s ideal for people who want to work close to where they live. Clarksville is a traditional residential neighborhood with historic homes and bungalows, but still has that Austin flare that people who relocate to Austin are yearning for. You get both city and country views in Clarksville thanks to its location, and housing is affordable compared to other neighborhoods in the area. Young couples who love diverse and culturally eclectic living tend to set up their homes in Clarksville.

Hyde Park

Near the University of Texas and north of Downtown Austin is the neighborhood of historic Hyde Park. There are strict building requirements in this area to preserve the look and feel of the neighborhood. You’ll find Victorian-style homes with large front porches and charming bungalows. With its proximity to the University of Texas, Hyde Park attracts students, young professionals, university faculty, and artistic people who love a quiet neighborhood. Christmastime in Hyde Park is extra special thanks to the light displays that attract thousands of visitors.


Located at the old Austin Airport sits the neighborhood of Mueller. This area was originally developed as a walking community with parks, shopping, and local services. Mueller features many lofts, townhouses, apartments, and homes to make the area very renter or homeowner friendly. It’s also a master-planned community so many homes and condos for sale are from the last decade.
