Newbie to Austin here. Where do y’all live? Looking for a 2 bed apt at a commutable distance to domain.
- Yeah I lived in Austin for 20 years can take 1.5hr to get downtown in bad traffic from riata. Also could take a while with traffic to get to domain. 183 can become pretty hellish. Really no part of town is dangerous. The worst these days is south east Austin. North Lamar is very safe, mostly millennials and hipsters these days.
I have friends who lived in riata, it's nice but I find a 20 minute drive annoying, I'd rather be halfway between domain and downtown than 10 minutes further away from downtown.
Personally I'm a fan of location over niceties too though, I lived in a POS apsrtment 3 miles from downtown. Instead of a nice one 10 miles away.
