A few blocks from the skyscrapers of downtown Austin, Clarksville is a small-town-feel neighborhood with down-to-earth people, historic homes, funky food, an exciting art scene, and a few treasures that only surface after living here for a bit. Or when a local shows you! Come on an easy stroll that includes a secret rooftop park, an expertly-curated art gallery, and one of the most beloved record stores in Texas. We'll also stop into a few places for food, so come with a little appetite.
Hey, Sidewalkers! I'm Abby: a Creative Director here in Austin. I grew up in Boston, but moved here from Chicago. I fell in love with Austin's great weather, creative & talented folks, and the amount of nature dispersed throughout the city. I adore taking road trips around Texas with my boyfriend, Alex; we've been to Marfa, Alpine, Houston, Corpus Christi, and Fredericksburg... but love calling Austin home. My passions include essay writing, contour drawing, light studying, pie baking, and people watching. I hope to do some world traveling in the next few years: Greece, Spain, and Japan are high on my list.
