There’s plenty to see and do in Austin, and Sixth Street is the entertainment district of the city and one of the world’s most renowned entertainment strips in the country. The tree-lined street is pleasant to walk down in the day and rocks at night. The street is lined with many historical buildings and houses a host of live entertainment venues. From jazz and blues to metal and punk, there’s a genre to suit everyone’s musical taste and just about every other establishment on the street rings with top-quality music. The street also has plenty of art galleries, upscale restaurants, casual cafes and tattoo parlors. That awesome Southern food is everywhere in Austin, and Sixth Street is loaded with restaurants rich with such culinary delights as chili, ribs and Cajun. The warm Southern air lets you sink into a relaxed state of mind and delicious food is the best…just another thing that makes trips with pets to Austin a great experience.
One of our favorites on Sixth Street is the Boat House Grill. It’s a great place to relax and grab a bite of Texan cuisine after a day at Lake Travis. The outdoor enclosed patio provides a place for pets and pet owners to share a Frito pie and a tasty plate of fried green tomatoes. Red’s Porch serves up the best Texan chicken tortilla soup, and pets are allowed on the first floor of the restaurant.
Sixth Street is Austin’s entertainment showcase. Throughout the year, Sixth Street sponsors fun events like the Austin Mardi Gras celebration, the Texas Bikers Rally, the Pecan Street Festival and a legendary Halloween celebration.
