Dripping Springs, Texas is Austin's up-and-coming area that is attracting people from all over. Dating back to the 1850s with a foundation in farming the valleys of Onion and Little Barton creeks, its population has steadily increased since World War II and it is easy to understand why.
Nowadays Dripping Springs is known as the Gateway to the Texas Hill Country. While many north Austin areas are beautiful, this city has managed development in such a way to preserve the rolling hills and stunning landscape. With this preservation comes an abundance of wildlife and natural beauty. One of the most popular outdoor attractions is Hamilton Pool Preserve. Lake Travis, LBJ Historical Park and Westcave Preserve are just a short drive away too. People who live here enjoy spacious homesite lots to create the secluded, Hill Country ambiance in their own backyard yet are still close enough to everyday conveniences.
Dripping Springs is a short less-than-30-minute drive, 25 miles southwest of downtown Austin. This prime location offers a commute that is almost unheard of in a traffic-filled city like Austin and rivals popular north Austin locations. Situated right off of US 290 and just past Austin city limits, it is easy to make a daily work commute downtown or weekend day trips to Hill Country destinations like Fredsrickburg. The extensive selection of nearby wineries, breweries, distilleries - such as Dripping Springs Vodka and Deep Eddy Vodka - and even olive oil companies, make this city a perfect location to work and play all year long.
Dripping Springs is also a place to learn too! Families are very attracted to Dripping Springs because of its highly rated school district. Dripping Springs ISD has some of the highest rated schools in the Austin metropolitan area and offers more affordable Austin home prices than some of the other excellent school districts, making this town a perfect place to start or raise a family.
