Upper Boggy Creek

A Whimsical, Urban Garden
Upper Boggy Creek is, at its core, a whimsical wonderland boasting backyard BBQs, picnics, and urban gardens. The natives of this quiet, casual neighborhood actively pursue the upkeep and maintenance of their community. The food is locally sourced, the art is homemade and proudly displayed, the coffee is strong and there's always a unique twist involved. You can test out this theory with coffee and yoga at the Cherrywood Coffeehouse, or with a relaxed dinner at Dai Due or Hoover’s Cooking.

Renters here are active members of their community. They enjoy the laidback residential area and it’s perfect proximity to both Downtown and the University of Texas. Residents come from all different walks of life and often include young families with children.

Upper Boggy Creek — 9.2/10 Rating (based on 10 neighborhood reviews)
I love this neighborhood! You're right on Manor so there's lots of bars and restaurants nearby, but you're also around residential neighborhoods so it's easy to go on walks and look at all the pretty houses. :) I also love East Austin generally so it's nice to be on this side of I-35.

The food scene along Manor is GREAT. I live across the street from Bird Bird Biscuit and El Chilito is just down the street. There are also other places I haven't tried but I've heard wonderful things about

A lot of restaurants and coffee shops in the area. People frequently go for walks or jogs. Many people in the neighborhood have dogs. Very close to the law school.

I haven't seen or heard of any problems. I don't see shady people wandering around. Day or night, it's pretty mellow. There's a convenience store, restaurant, and bar all within very close walking distance.

Great quiet neighborhood. Mostly homes with a few apartment complexes sprinkled in. Good for walking and really only one major road.
