Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
- Private Schools
It is a small town outside of Austin, Texas. It has grown more in the last ten years and is steadily growing. The commute to downtown Austin is about a 30-45 minute drive. I personally went to school in that area. School system is very well put together. Public schools are very modernized and relatively new. I feel very safe during the day but at night I have come across several different incidents. I believe because everyone tends to be home pretty early and so the new people see it as an opportunity to get away with crime. Traffic is never bad and it is easy to get around. Buda does have several public parks in a close range that are very family friendly. I have been to several events that were held at the parks. The town is overall very friendly.
The area I currently live in is very family friendly. Most people living here have children that are still in school. We are a little bit in the middle of no where, if you want to go to a store it's about a 20 min drive. There are 2 good schools near by and the local YMCA is 5 mins away. Working at the Y i have gotten to experience its great people and facilities. Previously I lived in Austin and there was a lot more around to do in this busy city. Here in Buda, things are a lot more quite and calm. I see this area building up a little more in the future, but not changing its peaceful atmosphere.
Buda is a quiet and growing town. Minutes away from austin and san marcos. All of the necessities to mainatian a friendy and nice environment are offered here. Shops are all local and neighbors are all welcoming. Not too small and not too big.
