I reformatted this page to work a little more like the Manual of style. There's still a lot to do, though. Most of the attraction listings need vital details and reformatting, for example. --Evan 01:22, 13 Jan 2004 (EST) Austin City Limits will be moving to the W Hotel on 2nd Street. It should be opening in December 2010
I Austin big enough to really need a list of the "districts"? I've lived here three years and I'm not sure where some of them are.
So then Austin is compact enough that everything should just go on the main Austin page? I haven't been there, but I kinda doubt it, isn't Austin sort of big, enough so to at least split it into NWS&E? One way or the other something should happen here, either the current couple of district pages should be incorporated back into the main Austin page, or vice-versa... the pages sort of feel in limbo at at the moment... Anyone in the know want to fix this page up? Cacahuate 03:45, 10 December 2006 (EST)
Austin is not a huge city. (period) you can walk around in one day.--220.127.116.11 12:10, 25 July 2009 (EDT)
Austin is a pretty good size city. There aren't distinct districts, however, N,S,E,& W will be suitable for Austin.
Austin is 820,000 people with 1.8 million in the metro area (2010 Census). I live inside Austin city limits and it takes me almost 20 minutes at 65 MPH to drive to downtown, so please don't say that it is a small place. Not anymore! And there is lots to see and do outside of downtown and UT areas (even live music!).
I moved here in 1979. My perception of districts (please note: districts, not neighborhoods) are: Downtown (Lady Bird Lake, IH-35, Mo-Pac, MLK), University (MLK, IH-35, Lamar, 35th Street), South Austin (Lady Bird Lake, IH-35, Mo-Pac, Ben White Blvd), West Austin (west of Mo-Pac/Enfield/Lamar, south of 2222), East Austin (Lady Bird Lake/Colorado River, IH-35, south of Pflugerville), North Austin (2222, Burnet Road, IH-35, south of Round Rock and Pflugerville), Northwest Austin (north of 2222, west of Burnet Road). Far south (culturally quite different from South Austin - south of Ben White, east of Mo-Pac), Southwest Austin (west of Mo-Pac, south of 71). Pflugerville, Round Rock, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander, Liberty Hill, Lakeway, Bee Cave, Dripping Springs, Wimberly, Kyle and Buda are all evolving into separate populations centers, with their own employment and shopping. They should probably have their own pages, with links on the Austin pages.
I am not sure who is adding Rainey Street into the districts page but it does not make sense to have a separate section for both Downtown and Rainey Street considering that Rainey Street is located in Downtown. Therefore I have edited/deleted that district.
When I put a link off-site to restaurants, I was told that's not kosher. Should the link to the list of vegetarian restaurants be removed? Chip 20:41, 13 Jul 2004 (EDT)
The info about Mount Bonnell is incorrect. Mount Barker is the highest point in Austin at 840ft above sea level
I added a local beer section under alcohol. It need to be rearranged, but I won't have the time till later. Also, wine is pretty important to the area. Being a beer person, I know little about local wine offerings. I figured I'd solicit such additions here. Jordanmills 15:43, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
I like the beer section, and added to it with a list of brewpubs in the city. I probably forgot about somebody though. Mrkstvns 22:07, 25 April 2008 (CDT)
Borders. . .
Hi there! Well I was wondering as like I will try and edit and move Austonian stuff from main to districts, if someone could put in all the districts borders, as I've never been there, I'd liek to know so I know like where certain ones go, based on addresses. If at least, you could say most-to-all of the neighbourhoods. Please and thanks! Keep smiling, Edmontonenthusiast 15:59, 2 November 2008 (EST).
