Austin's Famous 6th Street
If you're from Texas you know exactly where 6th Street is.
If you're not from Texas, then you're probably thinking it's between 5th and 7th.
Oh sure, lots of towns have a 6th Street, but 6th Street in Austin, Texas is like no other. It's probably the best known street in Texas.
The times I've visited 6th Street, I've seen such a variety of people all in one place. It's nothing to see wealthy business people, local governmental officials, bikers, scantily-clad women and families with kids walking all walking around on 6th Street. There seems to be no age limit, no dress-code and no restrictions along 6th Street. It's definitely an adventure.
