Now one of the trendier Central Austin neighborhoods, North Loop has not always held that title. The neighborhood used to be in the direct flight path of Robert Mueller Airport, when it was where Mueller is today. Constant noise made North Loop highly undesirable. When Robert Mueller closed in 1999 and the Bergstrom Airport took over, North Loop’s popularity took off overnight. Today, North Loop is a thriving neighborhood that as fully embraced Austin’s motto of Keeping it Weird. Local businesses are not just supported there, they are the heart of the North Loop community.
