Your first step? The DS Visitor's Center!
Welcome to the Dripping Springs area, the “Gateway to the Hill Country”! Whether your stay is short or long, there is no doubt you will enjoy this special part of Texas.
If you’re just arriving to Dripping Springs, the first thing you may be looking for is information. That’s where the Greater Dripping Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center can be of help. Located a quarter mile west of Ranch Road 12 on the north side of U.S. 290 (400-C U.S. 290) the Visitor’s 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 on Saturday’s from 9 a.m. until noon.
The Dripping Springs area was settled in the time of the old west and still retains some of that character today with many ranches still operating but especially as evidenced by our very friendly ways and our “can do” spirit.
You will find that Dripping Springs is 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. In addition to our many naturally beautiful sites, there are several buildings of historical significance, including the Pound House which dates to circa 1850
and has been fully restored.
One of the most important local celebrations each year is Founders Day which actually lasts for an entire weekend in April and the Fourth of July celebration each summer has become a much anticipated highlight for the community.
If you decide to stay awhile, you will soon discover that we have one of the best school districts in Texas, a volunteer spirit thriving through many local civic clubs and organizations and of course, many fine churches.
No matter how long you decide to stay, the Dripping Springs area has something for everyone. The Greater Dripping Springs Area Chamber of Commerce will be happy to assist you during your stay. On behalf of the Chamber and all the friendly folks in this area, welcome and please enjoy your stay!
