South Congress (4 minute drive from Downtown).. Shopping along South Congress and popping in the boutique/ cowboy boot stores/ shops is fun.. Definitely a street to check out for an hour or so before a meal on South Congress.. This is where the ‘I Love You So Much’ mural is/ Jo’s Coffee Shop.. . Favorite store - Howler Brothers outdoors. Great shirts, store front, and uniquely Austin.. The Domain. A little bit further out from Austin proper but the Mecca of Austin shopping. Apple Store, Banana Republic, David Yurman, H&M, Forever 21, L'Occitane, Louis Vuitton - just to name a few.
