My Dad lives a couple of blocks from the Village (West University). Yep, it really is a cool place.
I usually think of Houston "overall" as chaotic and anything but quiet. But I would say Austin's downtown is a lot busier than Houston's, at least at this point. Houston does have a lot of quiet, very peaceful residential neighborhoods where it's hard to believe you're right in the middle of a big city.
