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.

I have lived in Buda for 10 years now and I haven't even thought of moving because of how safe and great this town is. My family used to move constantly but when we came top Buda, we knew that we were going to settle down here.

I don't regret moving here, this area has brought many more opportunities to me than if i had stayed in Pflugerville or California. The area is nice and very homey and i've met wonderful people here.
