ok, folks. I'm gonna be in Austin from 10/22 to 10/29. I know all about (well, not ALL about) 78704, and I plan on spending time there gettin' the vibe.

I really want to get a feel for a few neighborhoods. I'm single, older (ahem) ex-hippie type, no kids so schools don't matter, what does matter is progressive, up-and-coming, actively re-habbing neighborhoods close to downtown. These are the areas I'll be interested in buying in and living in.

Where should I go other than 78704?

78704 sounds like it is right for you. Hit SOCO, shop, eat, sight see. Watch the bats, grab a drink over on 4th or 2nd street. Check out the Capitol, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Also, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is wonderful. Mount Bonnell is awesome You can get a great fell for the city from there. Have fun!
