"Up-and-coming North Central Austin Neighborhood"

I've lived in North Shoal Creek since January 2007, and it is an awesome old Austin neighborhood. It is centrally located between Mopac Expressway/Loop 1 (to the west) and 183/Research Blvd. (to the north), so you have an urban feel with the suburban perks.

The neighborhood area is pedestrian friendly and integrates bus routes, biking trails and many sidewalks. It is located next to retail and recreational facilities, many of which are local businesses, businesses include: The Village Alamo Drafthouse, Fresh Plus, Chipotle, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Tarka, The Goodnight and other newly opened restaurants and local shops. The neighborhood also have lots of old oak trees and charm.

My husband and I walk to the the Fresh Plus grocery store and around the neighborhood almost everyday. According to the website Walk Score, North Shoal Creek is the 14th most walkable neighborhood in Austin.
