You should live here if you like the wacky ideas of Austin (the hipness, the bars, the shops, the restaurants). On the other hand, you may care less about all that, and just want a nice, quiet neighborhood, or you may want a newer subdivision, like Circle C, with all the amenities of the suburban life. Above all you want something affordable to mid-range – lots of bang for your buck, and pretty close to downtown. Just south of Ben White (also known as 290 and 71), can be thought of as 78704-adjacent. It’s for people who want to live in South Austin but can’t afford 78704. It’s mainly neighborhoods of older 1960s and 70s homes, although moving south you’ll find 80’s and 90’s homes. It’s a hodgepodge, really and you can find quite a variety of prices and home sizes here. Circle C is a huge development further south, off of Mopac (1). Here you’ll find a master planned suburban community with newer large homes, some on golf courses. The homes in this area have a Hill Country look to them with limestone, stucco and cedar posts. Many people like the schools in this area and claim that the commute to downtown isn’t all that bad. Unlike our suburbs to the north, I know quite a few creative types who settle in this area. I’m going to guess that it’s the proximity to 78704 and South Austin in general that pumps up the “coolness” factor. Even further out west on 290 is Dripping Springs, a suburb in the Hill Country. People seem to appreciate the schools out here and the Hill Country scenery, which is hilly and full of post oaks and cedar trees.
