Guide to Dripping Springs - - Make the Vistor’s Center Your First Stop -

Wel­come to Drip­ping Springs – Gate­way to the Hill Coun­try! Whether your stay is long or short, I am sure you will en­joy your stay in “ Drip­pin’.”

If you’re just ar­riv­ing to Drip­ping Springs, the first thing you may be look­ing for is in­for­ma­tion. That’s where the Drip­ping Springs Area Cham­ber of Com­merce and Vis­i­tors Cen­ter can be of help.

The cham­ber is con­ve­niently lo­cated in the Spring Bluff Cen­ter at 400C High­way 290 West in the heart of Drip­ping Springs. The Vis­i­tors Cen­ter hands out more than 200 in­for­ma­tion pack­ages monthly and has all the an­swers you’re prob­a­bly look­ing for con­cern­ing the area. The cen­ter is open Mon­day through Fri­day, 9 a.m. un­til 4 p.m. and Satur­days from 9 a.m. un­til noon.

Set­tled in 1850’s by the Pound, Moss and Wal­lace fam­i­lies, Drip­ping Springs has re­tained much of the char­ac­ter our past an­ces­tors be­stowed on our small town. The Dr. Pound Pi­o­neer Farm­stead is just one of many Drip­ping Springs his­tor­i­cal land­marks. The home has been fully re­stored and the Farm­stead is now open for group events as well.

Be sure to visit some of our

more pop­u­lar, nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful sites and at­trac­tions such as Ped­er­nales State Park, West Cave Pre­serve, Hamil­ton Pool Park and Reimer Ranch Park. We are an area of beau­ti­ful vis­tas with rugged hills, beau­ti­ful spring fed creeks, green val­leys, stately oak trees and pic­turesque wind­ing roads. Deer and turkey are na­tive and are es­pe­cially plen­ti­ful through­out the area. Even though you can still find goat and cat­tle ranches in Drip­pin’, ex­otic an­i­mal ranches are be­com­ing more preva­lent.

The Drip­ping Springs area is proud to be home to many tal­ented res­i­dents in­clud­ing artists, writ­ers and en­ter­tain­ers. We are a com­mu­nity with many lo­cal events, but one of the most im­por­tant is our Founders Day Fes­ti­val, which lasts for an en­tire week­end in April. Our “Fire in the Sky” Fourth of July cel­e­bra­tion each sum­mer and the Ca­jun Shrimp Boil and Fine Arts Fest in early Septem­ber have be­come much an­tic­i­pated high­lights for the com­mu­nity.

Drip­ping Springs is also a draw for small busi­ness due to the close prox­im­ity to Austin, Texas. With an in­flux of re­lo­cates from all over the United States, our Area Cham­ber of Com­merce con­tin­ues to grow at a rapid rate. We have over 400 small busi­nesses in the area that of­fer sales and ser­vices to those who want to visit as well as to those who want to re­lo­cate here.

Whether you’re visit­ing or re­lo­cat­ing, the Drip­ping Springs area has some­thing for ev­ery­one. The Drip­ping Springs Area Cham­ber of Com­merce will be happy to as­sist you. On be­half of the Cham­ber and all the friendly folks in this area, wel­come and please en­joy your stay! Drip­ping Springs is a great place to live and do busi­ness. Let us be your hill coun­try des­ti­na­tion.
