Looking for something stimulating, healthy, educational and fun to do this weekend? I have the perfect suggestion for you which includes a little bit of everything. Invite your friends and family, pick a cool spot for lunch in the middle of it all and join in on the action. The Downtown Austin Neighborhood Association (DANA) presents the 8th Annual Downtown Living Tour, a self-guided tour featuring homes, historic landmarks, modern residences and commercial spaces all located in 78701 zip code area. DANA’s mission it to “improve the quality of life for those who live, work and play downtown.” The association actually influences the many decisions that affect our downtown area and also plays an active role in educating residents about downtown and listens to issues that affect them.
Guests of the tour are encouraged to walk, bike or pedicab to each location and view the architecture of interiors and exteriors, decor, styles and design.
