One of the fastest growing suburbs of the Austin region, Buda boasts small town ambiance melded seamlessly with easy access to big city amenities. With plenty of wild Texas landscape scenery at the disposal of the locals, this picturesque hot spot is sure to please even the most discerning of would-be residents.
Taking its moniker from the stately hotel 'The Buda House' in the late 1800s, this Texas locale established itself as a town along the Great Northern Railroad, which ran from Austin to San Antonio. Officially incorporated in 1948, and by the mid-1980s Buda's industry included a variety of crafts and cement manufacturing. Today, the city largely acts as a bedroom community for much of the Austin workforce.
Spring and fall are quite pleasant in the area, with rain commonplace in the April and May months. Summer is lengthy and hot, with temperatures often creeping into the high 90s and lasting into September. Winter, conversely, is mild and largely free of snow and ice.
Both nearby Austin and San Antonio boast major airport hubs, with international and domestic flights available via a variety of carriers. Bus service in the city proper is limited, with most residents of apartments in Buda utilizing a personal car or truck to get around. Taxis are available, and bicycling along the more 'scenic' country roads is a popular past time.
Interstate 35 is the primary roadway in the area, offering direct access to both Austin and San Antonio. Commuters to these markets can expect lengthy delays during the typical 9 to 5 hours, although newly constructed toll roads such as I-45 help connect those living in Buda to Austin's airport region and much of the area east of the Texas capital.
The 'Hays Free Press' is a popular news outlet in the city, and nearby papers such as the 'Austin-American Statesman' and the 'Austin Chronicle'. Radio is diverse and largely from the Austin market, including modern rock, country, talk and urban formats. KUTX is a popular commercial-free NPR affiliate, and numerous major television brands such as NBC and FOX are readily available to most Buda apartments.
With an ideal location close to both the job markets of Austin and San Antonio, Buda is an ideal place for work, play and family. Numerous universities call the area home, making it a great stop for students on the go, and the winning mix of natural splendor and nearby urban excitement make it literally the best of both worlds.
The G.A. Moore building dates back to the 1920s, and the historic Mission Fellowship Church was constructed in 1912, making it one of the oldest structures in the city. Buda's famed water tower is an easily spotted landmark, and the Main Street drag features shops and buildings that act as living monuments to the city's humble beginnings.
Pinballz Kingdom is hard to miss, with an enormous dragon head heralding the entrance to the large castle housing hundreds of classic video games. Stagecoach Park is a great place to throw a frisbee or walk the dog, while gun-toting Texans can take aim at The Shooting Ranch Firing Range. Play some pool and drink some suds with buds at Willie's Joint, or spend an afternoon pampering yourself at the Well Boutique Spa.
The annual Wiener Dog Races have become a staple of the Buda festival scene, with large scale music fests such as ACL and Sound On Sound Fest drawing enormous crowds just to the north of the city. Independence Day is quite the event, complete with fireworks and a parade, while numerous farmer's markets pop up monthly around town offering fresh produce and other goods.
Head south for some beach fun with a trip to Corpus Christi, or hit the scenic western town of Marfa for some unique art galleries and live music. Big Bend Park is an awe-inspiring stretch of natural beauty and mountain peaks, while the I-10 drive through the desert to New Mexico is an adventure lover's dream trip.
From the family-friendly neighborhoods of Green Meadows and Leisurewoods, to the stately Bradfield Village, Buda apartments are available to fit just about every walk of life and budget. Whether you are on the hunt for a thrifty one bedroom unit close to the I-35 on-ramp or desire a luxurious three bedroom spread complete with onsite pool and gym, we're confident that your ideal Buda rental match is out there waiting for you. Happy hunting!
