Austin Visitors Street Guide
Originally uploaded by thenelsonproject
You can call it weird but most likely you’ll call it confusing, but Austin has this way of confusing our visitors with numerous names for the same street. Makes it difficult for a realtor to help their newby’s orient to our fine city.
An example would be you’ve just left downtown via 1st Street (oh, sorry, Cesar Chavez) traveling south on Mopac (oh, sorry, Loop 1) and you have been given instructions to exit on Bee Cave (oh, sorry, 2244). So you missed your Bee Cave exit and end up on 360 (oh, sorry, Capital of TX Hwy) and turn on to 71 (oh, sorry, Ben White or, uh, sorry, 290) and somehow end up on IH35 (IH35) to go north back towards downtown you see an exit for 1st Street (oh, sorry, Casar Chavez) and head back west towards Mopac (oh, sorry, Loop 1). You get the picture. So you stop and get a beer and study the map before heading out for round two.
GPS will come in handy for your visit or see the attached .pdf for a visitors street guide (compliments of Alamo Title). Trust me, you’ll be glad you reviewed the list.
Enjoy your visit.
