Two couples considering a condo close to the Long Center last weekend in Oct- Thu-Mon (we are there for the Triathlon). Is this an easy area to get to the music/entertainment/restaurant/shopping action of 6th St and also S. Congress? Any other areas not to be missed? Would rather walk, but know nothing of safety, distance, etc. Looks like there is a bus that goes in to town on 1st St. Also, any recommendations for things to do while there. We have never been to Austin and just starting to look. Thx so much for your help!
