Bee Cave Homes For Sale
Nestled just west of Austin’s city limits is Bee Cave, Texas. The area derived its name from the colonies of Mexican honeybees in limestone caves that lived near the banks of Barton Creek and Little Barton Creek that encompassed a large area of western Travis County. Today, Bee Cave is known for its mix of old and new neighborhoods, laid-back atmosphere and makes for a relaxing escape from the hustle of downtown Austin, which is just a 30 minute commute.
Bee Cave offers a serene Hill Country lifestyle. At the heart of the community is the Hill Country Galleria on Highway 71, home to some of the best shopping that the Hill Country has to offer. Set outside, the hot-spot is 152 acres of shopping, dining and entertainment venues. Spend an hour, or an entire day, at the Galleria to unwind and practice a little retail therapy. Enjoy the movie theater, Whole Foods, and many restaurant choices such as the County Line BBQ on the lake that is nearby.
