Searching for the right urban Austin Neighborhood that is walking distance to all of the amenities is someone would want, but without the need for a car is a goal for many Americans these days. In the last ten years, Austin has become much more of an urban core and currently ranks as 33rd in the country on the walk score. This is in part due to the actions of the city to bring more businesses into downtown Austin.  Austin has also worked to adapt its streets to become more bike-friendly, adding biking lanes on many of the central Austin neighborhoods. The best walkable neighborhoods in Austin are the areas surrounding the University of Texas and Downtown Austin.
