Dripping Springs is located in Northern Hays County.  What makes Dripping Springs unique is that it offers the feel and lifestyle of a small town while being only 20 minutes from Downtown Austin and about 25 minutes to Austin and about 25 minutes to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.  There’s a large variety of homes to choose from in the area from 100-year-old ranch homes to New Construction Master Plan communities to estate homes and gated neighborhoods.  Prices vary as much as the homes do.  The majority of the homes in the area are in the $300,000.00 to $500,000.00 range.  

That said you can still find a home in the $200,000.00 range but you can just as easily find a home in the $2 million range.  A big draw to the area are the schools.  Dripping Springs has an award-winning school district.  The high school had the notable accomplishment of graduating 99 percent of its senior class in 2011.  The district currently consists of 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school and 1 high school but with the district population growing by 58 percent since the Year 2000 that is sure to change.  

This strong growth has spurned substantial commercial development.  Most notable are the addition of an H-E-B Grocery Store and a Home Depot.  For now on Inner Smalls are the Hill Country Galleria at about 15 minutes and the Barton Creek Mall at about a 20-minute drive.  Dripping Springs is known as the Gateway to the Hill Country and the Hill Country is known for its natural beauty with attractions such as Hamilton Pool, Westcave Preserve and the Pedernales State Park.  With its natural beauty and being the former home of Lance Armstrong, Dripping Springs is a popular destination for cyclists.  

There are also a number of wineries, microbreweries and olive orchards in the area.  Nearby Driftwood is the home of the world-famous Salt Lick.  If you’re looking for barbeque this is your place and for finer fair you might want to try Trattoria Lisina.  Also there’s the Oak Creek Café if you’re looking for comfort food.  Another popular lunch destination is Rolling in Thyme & Dough.  Dripping Springs is one of the last bastions of Small Town America.  

It’s a place where people still say hello, where kids don’t have to grow up before their time and if you leave your wallet on the table at the Oak Creek Café they’re gonna run out the door to bring it back to ya.  In short it’s a great place to live.
