The most complete list of the best neighborhoods in Austin for 2015

It seems like every few months another national publication is singing the praises of living in Austin.  They put out a 10 best neighborhood list, or the top 5 zip codes in Austin, or something similar.  Well, I’ve taken all those lists and put them in one easy to reference place for you.

What is so cool about all these lists is that they come from both inside AND outside of Austin.  Some of these are local blogs or papers, while others are more nationally recognized websites.  Most of them have the same core of areas as their favorites, but every so often something unique pops up, and I can tell you from experience that these ARE the places people want to live in when the come to Austin.

Here they are, in no particular order, 9 of the best neighborhoods in Austin.
