Tarrytown: An Upscale, Historic, Family-Friendly Neighborhood Minutes from Downtown Austin

Nestled against Lake Austin where it curves east and over Tom Miller Dam to meet Lady Bird Lake, lies the upscale, historic, family-friendly Austin Neighborhood known as Tarrytown. Established in 1915 and named after Tarrytown, New York, this verdant west Austin community is known for its urban forest, which inspired the original 1930’s advertising slogan: “Where oak trees charm the eye.”
