Neighborhoods > South Austin > Dawson

Dawson is a large community just north of Ben White Boulevard, between South Congress Avenue and South First Street. Although they are neighbors, many Austinites feel that Dawson is the laid-back version of South Congress. Dawson put itself on the map when efforts were made by the neighborhood association to revitalize the area and enhance the natural beauty and history of the neighborhood. Residences in Dawson are a mix of original mid-century homes, renovated homes with a modern feel and new condominium communities with luxury amenities. Whether you’re looking for a ready to move in property or one that needs a little retouching, you’ll find the perfect home in Dawson. Prices for Dawson homes range from $250K to $600K. St. Edward's University is within walking distance of some Dawson homes and condos, making it easy for students to walk or bike to class. Residents can enjoy outdoor recreation activities at the South Austin Recreation Center, or visit Gillis Park at the northwest corner of the community to swim at the pool. Residents only have to head a couple blocks north to explore the quirky shops along South Congress Avenue, including Uncommon Objects and Lucy in Disguise. Although Dawson’s nightlife may be more relaxed than hoppin’ downtown, residents always find a fun way to spend the evening. Locals enjoy meeting up with friends at one of the neighborhood’s restaurants, like Lucy's Fried Chicken or the original Torchy's Tacos. Dawson residents enjoy living the South Austin lifestyle within their tight-knit community just five minutes from downtown Austin.
