Make the Visitor’s Center your first stop: See all Dripping Springs has to offer
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.
