The small city is a newer, up-and-coming area with great school systems, new and affordable housing, many amenities and shopping, great city council and a great SAFE place for families. There are a lot of family activities throughout the year and a lot of Texas and American pride events.
Review Bee Cave
We've been in a drought out here for a really long time so the lake hasn't filled up yet, which restricts some summer fun as can be imagined! The winter is usually a moderate cold and the summers are ridiculously hot with Fall and Spring in between. There's really no natural disasters out here; the occasional rain, maybe a light freeze, and that's it.
It's a good, safe suburb of Austin, with a lot of young families. There is only one shopping center, so you will run out of things to do if you aren't keen on going downtown. People also drive way too fast here, with surpassing the speed limit by at least 15 mph being a normal phenomenon.
