City of Buda

The Outdoor Capital of Texas

Just 20 minutes south of Austin, off the beaten path lies Buda, Texas – a friendly city with small town charm and big plans for the future that is equal parts pragmatic and idyllic. Steeped in area history, Buda holds fast to the values and rich potential that made it a choice location for the first settlers of the 1880s. The same qualities that made the city attractive in the past hold true today. Safe, affordable, wholesome Buda is a city centered on community, an oasis of country calm at the edge of civilization, unspoiled by the pace of Austin and San Antonio’s big city ways.

Put your feet up, and breathe easy – Buda’s city fathers have seen to it that its historic flavor, laid-back lifestyle, and family-friendly atmosphere will be protected and preserved for the next generation. Buda’s unique character has spurred increased residential development, with the population growing by over 205% from 2000 to 2010. With more parkland per capita, Buda is the Outdoor Capital of Texas. World famous festivals and events bring countless visitors to our community each year.
