Local Shopping And Dining

The newest section of the Domain is the Great Lawn. In addition to all the great shops surrounding it, this outdoor space has a lot to offer on its own. With free Wi-Fi throughout the center, it is a perfect place to catch up on email or stay in touch with business clients. Food Truck Eats begins at 11:00 am each day and is a great place to grab lunch and enjoy the warm Austin weather. The Great Lawn is a happening place, day and night. Its “iconic cable structures” are a unique example of modern art and the play area is a great place for the whole family to spend an afternoon. In the evening, visitors can experience a multicolored light display.

The other high-end outdoor mall in Austin is the Arboretum at Great Hills. While smaller than the Domain, the Arboretum is home to a wide range of retail establishments, including Barnes & Noble Booksellers, The Gap, and Z Gallerie. It is also the location of AZIZ Salon and Day Spa. Notable restaurants include Newk’s, Honest Mary’s, and Cheesecake Factory.  The diversity of businesses attracts a wide range of shoppers from the entire Austin metro area. The natural landscaping with a fountain, picnic area, and renowned marble cow sculptures provides a peaceful backdrop for shopping and outdoor dining.

When you make your weekend plans, consider a visit to the Domain or the Arboretum. You will not be disappointed by the selection of shops and restaurants at Austin’s two outstanding outdoor malls.
