The population of Texas is growing by leaps and bounds every year. In fact, from 2010 to 2018, the population of our state grew from 25.1 million to 28.7 millionmaking it the 3rd fastest growth rate of any state in our country. While many folks are flocking to Texas’ bustling metroplexes to take advantage of a strong economy and vibrant nightlife, just as many are drawn to the smaller, more charming and historic communities that dot the landscape of our great state. Among those historic towns is one that’s quickly becoming less of a carefully guarded secret: Buda, Texas.

You might not have even heard of Buda (and, if so, you’re probably mispronouncing its nameit’s “BYOO duh,” not “Buddha”). It’s located 15 miles south of downtown Austin, along the I-35 corridor, and is probably best known for its famous outdoor superstore, Cabela’s. But the town has way more to offer than just outdoor superstores. This historic Texas town in the heart of the Hill Country is ripe with opportunities, appeal, and fun.

Here are 5 cool things that Buda has to offer visitors as well as residents!

The Texas State Legislature named Buda the “Outdoor Capital of Texas,” and, believe it or not, this honor had little to do with it being home to Cabela’s. In fact, this small town is home to 13 scenic parks, encompassing 268 acres of public park land. Residents can take full advantage of the beautiful Texas Hill Country weather by getting outside and enjoying these dedicated park spaces. The town’s parks also feature ADA accessible trails, so everyone can be included in enjoying the outdoors.
