Whether you're coming for a wedding in one of the many venues around town (this area is known as the wedding capital of Texas!) or just looking for a relaxing getaway, a Dripping Springs vacation rental is the perfect place to make a home while visiting Texas Hill Country. With less than 2,000 occupants, this tiny town is especially well-suited to those who desire quiet "off-the-map" locales to enjoy the beauty of nature, as well as those who desire a restful alternative close to the bustling city of Austin, TX. Known for its bountiful plant and animal life, gorgeous views, babbling (or "dripping"!) creeks, and gentle hills, Dripping Springs is often called the gateway to Texas Hill Country.
Stargazing in Dripping Springs, TX
Amateur astronomers and lovers of peace and quiet will love the nightly dark skies overhead at our Dripping Springs vacation rentals - this was the first town in Texas to be named an International Dark Sky Community. Use this opportunity to rent or borrow a telescope and hike atop one of the many hills to view the gorgeous stars that are only visible in the Texas sky.
Dripping Springs farmer's market and festivals
Foodies will love the weekly, year-round farmer's market held every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to dusk, featuring local farmers from all over Texas Hill Country. Here, you'll find seasonal goods, such as tomatoes and greens, beef, fruit...even artisanal beauty products like hand lotion! Other community events include the annual Founder's Day Festival, the Dripping Springs Fair and Rodeo, and the Tomato Round-up.
