Why We Love Buda, Texas

Historic downtown Buda

Just the Right Distance from the City

Close enough to Austin to make a short commute but far enough to stay out of traffic, Buda, TX has become a popular city to visit and live in the past few years. With an estimated population of over 16,000, Buda is one of the fastest growing suburbs of Austin. While it may be close to the big city, Buda still retains its comfortable small town atmosphere.

Unique Small Town Charm

One of the perks of small town living is the many little known aspects and historic trivia that give it a special charm other cities just don’t have. Residents of Buda are familiar with many of the things that make the city unique, but even long time Budans may not know some of these interesting facts about the city. Below are six reasons we love Buda, TX!

“Breathe Easy Here”

The city of Buda has its own motto: “Breathe Easy Here.” With 13 parks and outdoor spaces for residents and visitors to relax, the city lives up to its motto!

The Outdoor Capital of Texas

Because of the many acres of parkland in Buda, the city was bestowed the title “Outdoor Capital of Texas” by the state legislature. Historic Stagecoach Park alone covers over 50 acres. The Buda City Park is also a popular destination. Occasional live music events in addition to annual holiday events make it an excellent gathering place for the community.

Formerly Du Pre, Texas

The city of Buda was not always called Buda. The city was called Du Pre from its founding until 1887 when the name was changed to Buda.

Country Fair & Wiener Dog Races

The Buda Lions Club annually holds the Country Fair & Wiener Dog Races. The event is often held at Buda City Park or the popular venue Buck’s Backyard in the spring and draws attention across the city. Vendors sell food and crafts, and of course everyone gathers to watch the wiener dogs run! There have been as many as 400 racers at the event.

A film production in progress in Buda

Film Friendly Texas

Buda became a part of the Film Friendly Texas Program in 2009. This program helps Texas cities learn how to encourage media production in their communities and potentially become destinations for production as well. Media production can have significant economic impacts on cities, and Buda’s participation in this state-specific program was a great investment in potential future projects.

Scenic City Certification

Out of 1,200 cities across Texas who applied, Buda was one of 16 chosen to receive a gold certificate from the Scenic City Certification Program of Scenic Texas. The goal of the Scenic Texas organization is to improve the visual environment of Texas, and preserve where possible.
