Known as “The Gateway to the Hill Country,” Dripping Springs, Texas is just 25 minutes from downtown Austin – and light years away from big city living. Dripping Springs is a tightly knit community that has worked to preserve the country lifestyle and values upon which it was founded.
As a growing community, along with that growth has come retail businesses, with a Home Depot and H-E-B opening here recently, as well as other shops and restaurants and a local hotel off 290. For all the growth Dripping Springs, Texas is experiencing, however, the town has kept its small town charm.
Dripping Springs is appealing to families who want to provide the best education for their children; the school district here is a top notch, 4A district with schools that have been rated exemplary for the last several years. For that reason, the area has attracted a lot of younger families, with elementary schools growing at a faster rate than the area’s middle and high schools.
