West Balcones is known for its large, beautiful, well-maintained homes and its abundant natural scenery with nice views of the city skyline and Lake Austin. The area is on a hill at several hundred feet elevation so views are plentiful here. With several parks and nature preserves, Highland Park West Balcones appeals to those who enjoy nature and the outdoors. Two unique attractions are Mount Bonnell, a relatively easy climb to reach remarkable views of Austin and the lake, and Camp Mabry, a historic yet functioning Army post with a military forces museum and World War II reenactments. The neighborhood association is active and there are several annual events for residents including an Easter Egg hunt, Fourth of July parade, movie night at Perry Park, and picnic in the park.

Balcones West borders Texas Loop 1 (MoPac), a major highway, and is just a short drive to downtown and south Austin. This neighborhood may have fewer shops and restaurants, as others closer to the city center do, but makes up for it with its amazing views, greenspace, and charming environment.
