Driftwood, TX is an unincorporated community just 35 minutes southwest of Austin. As an unincorporated community, Driftwood city limits boast a very small population (under 200 people!), and only 3,450 people lived in the area’s zip code (78619) as of 2013. Many people enjoy the aspect of unincorporation, as there is more flexibility in where and how to build, along with fewer restrictions, like covenants, depending on the area.
If having small town freedom while having big city access is important to your clients, Driftwood might be the perfect option for them. Residents also have easy access to H-E-B, Walmart, and the like, so they don’t have to drive far to find what they need. As they are unincorporated, Driftwood shares a school district with Dripping Springs Independent School district, the next town over. There are three elementary schools, and one middle and high school each.
What most people love about Driftwood is the access to Texas Hill Country, and the beautiful views to be seen. The area is so green and lush that it is actually home to a number of wineries, making it a great place to have friends and family visit for a little R&R. There is a wide array of restaurants to choose from, and as the area grows, more options are coming in every month. Camp Ben McCulloch is another huge attraction, where people camp and enjoy the creek, and also where festivals roll through to entertain tourists and residents alike.
