Govalle is a large East Austin neighborhood made up of a collection of smaller, undesignated communities. One of the last neighborhoods that maintains its original charm, you’ll find many untouched 1940s homes. But, as development pushes east of Downtown, you’re also starting to see plenty of restored homes, larger new construction and modern condo projects. Since this area is still considered affordable compared to other East Austin neighborhoods, you’ll find a lot of art galleries, breweries, nonprofits and holistic centers setting up shop. Govalle residents also enjoy convenient access to Airport Boulevard, Hwy 183 and IH 35. And, as Austin traffic gets worse, easy access to highways will mean less time in the car.
