"Peacefully quiet for a foodie bicyclist"

Over the past three to four years nearly all of the older shopping centers in the area have been refurbished. Dozens of stores have moved in, making the current selection diverse, almost entirely local, and all within walking distance. There's lots of fun stuff in the area, like the Alamo Drafthouse, several coffee places and interesting shops. There's not a lot as far as music venues, but there are a few local breweries just on the other side of 183 and they give tastings and tours daily or weekly along with other events.

This neighborhood is located at the start of one of the best bicycling routes to downtown which is about a leisurely 40 minute bicycle ride. There's lots of other commuting options, like the soon to start metroRapid buses, the Redline, other buses, and Mopac. When its not rush hour I can drive to downtown in less than 15 minutes.

The FreshPlus is a local grocery store chain, one of I think three in the city. They sell a variety of organics, natural remedies, and a large beer selection. Yes, I enjoy beer. Its best after a bike ride though. My one complaint is that they are could use some more parks. The nearest park is about a mile south along Shoal Creek.

I've seen the neighborhood grow and change over the past few years and it keeps getting better. There are always people walking around; Its a walkable part of town. Folks are friendly and the rent's not to damn high.
