Located off Highway 71, Bee Cave is less than one hour from Downtown Austin and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. New housing developments, gated communities, and older estates increasingly attract luxury homebuyers looking for a community that will exceed their expectations and sustain their lifestyles.

For the shopping aficionado, the Hill Country Galleria is a wonderland where Texas charm meets couture. Navigate through a delightful mix of high-end boutiques and lose yourself in a kaleidoscope of fashion. The Galleria comprises 1.3 million square feet of multi-use facilities: boutiques, eateries, entertainment options, and even luxury condos.

Other delectable options include Baguette et Chocolat, Plate, and the irresistible treats and vibes at Meridian 98 and Jules Design Bar. Finally, no neighborhood guide would be complete without mentioning Bee Cave Public Library, a sanctuary for the intellect and the spirit.
