Okay to start off brushy creek is a conservative area with some moderate viewpoints. They have incredible public school systems and cheap affordable housing (compared to Austin prices). It is located near a lot of convenient family stores, fast food places (Chick-fil-A, McDonalds, and so on), and it is a very safe area. I read another review on here complaining about public transit but Austin really only offers a bus transportation service so if you live anywhere in Texas you obviously need a car or need to live closer to the city (I am assuming this reviewer isn’t from Texas). Lucky for us there are lots of cheap housing options in this area so that you can purchase a vehicle.

Brushy Creek is a family neighborhood. As you travel through this beautiful, peaceful neighborhood you seen an abundance of children enjoying themselves. With a multitude of parks, trails, and more outdoor activities to choose from, this neighborhood is simply amazing. There is no worry when the children are outside, as this neighborhood is safe and child - and adult- friendly.
Brushy Creek is absolutely perfect. Its only 30 minutes from downtown Austin, which is great if you like it to be quiet, but still want to be able to party. The parks are beautiful and the people are friendly.
