The 5 Best Neighborhoods in Austin


Austin, TX, is quickly on the rise. Thanks to a booming economy, a bustling downtown, and great weather year-round, this city remains the fastest growing map dot in the country. With all this growth comes neighborhood expansion. So, we’re looking at just a handful of locations where you might want to buy a home. Just don’t forget to call TLC Home Inspections for a buyer’s inspection!

1. Allendale

Allendale is a quiet oasis in the middle of a busy downtown. These quiet suburban streets are lined with two- or three-bedroom homes and lush lawns, all of which are minutes from downtown. This neighborhood also has a wide selection of local shops and eateries, perfect for those Sunday afternoon strolls.

2. Cedar Park

Cedar Park is situated northwest of downtown Austin and is closer to some of the area’s largest employers: Dell, Apple, and National Instruments. This location is ideal for commuters and people who want to escape the city at the end of the day. Furthermore, this quiet neighborhood features its own set of locally-owned shops and restaurants.

3. Buda

Do you wish downtown history and small-town charm could meet? Well, you’re in luck! The Buda neighborhood is a beautiful area for anyone seeking a suburban feel without venturing too far outside the city. Here, you’ll find luxury downtown homes and local community events like a county fair and Movies in the Park.

4. Dripping Springs

If you don’t mind the drive, then head on out to a beautiful neighborhood set against the backdrop of rolling hills, oak trees, and rock-bottom creeks. Dripping Spring is just 25 minutes from downtown Austin and is full of rich amenities for residents. Additionally, this area boasts a great school system and spacious ranch homes – perfect for growing families!

5. Georgetown

Named one of the best places to live by CNN Monday, Georgetown has been growing its economy and population over the last few years. This neighborhood carries a small-town charm that most crave, but is still close enough to downtown. Residents here enjoy all of the history and the shopping along Historic Georgetown Square.
