Austin may have a long-established tradition of vibrant nightlife, a cutting edge music scene, and enough Longhorns to throw the biggest barbecue in Texas, but in its more residential areas, Austin offers new (and often luxurious) communities built with you and the family in mind.
Santa Rita Ranch
One of the Austin area's newest master-planned communities Santa Rita Ranch combines a neighborhood feel with Hill Country style. Kids walk to school (at either the Georgetown or Liberty Hills ISD) here, and skipping rocks in the San Gabriel River is actually a thing people do. Santa Rita offers a family sports complex and sports fields; pools and splash park; a vibrant town center; and a web of hiking, biking, and nature trails from your own backyard.
