Day Tripping around Dripping Springs

Happy New Year!

Coffman Real Estate wants to give you a reminder to file your Homestead Exemptions! This form is used to notify the county that you own and occupy the property you purchased last year. In return, you will get a tax break on your property taxes for all the years you own and occupy your new home. You will not have to file this form again unless you move or sell your house. Lastly, avoid using a service that will charge you a fee to file this form on your behalf. The only cost to you, is the time it takes to complete the form (we have included it at the end of this blog) and mailing it to the appraisal district. These are due by April 30th.

Homestead exemptions remove part of your home's value from taxation. If you want to receive a

Just a half-hour drive from Austin’s western enclave of Oak Hill, the once-tiny town of Dripping Springs is bursting with things to do — especially if you have a thirst for the more than a dozen breweries, distilleries and wineries that have turned this northern swath of Hays County into a weekend destination spot.

There’s a lot to do besides drink, of course, especially if you’re a fan of the outdoors and love swimming in the azure waters of Texas Hill Country oasis Hamilton Pool. But make no mistake: Dripping Springs and the surrounding area have become an attractive place for some of the area’s most promising booze makers. It’s just outside the crowded city and surrounded by the rugged green beauty of the Hill Country, with more land available and

THE BIRTH OF INDEPENDENCE DAY

 

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical.

By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published by Thomas Paine in early 1776.

On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence.

Y’all! It is summer in Texas and its going to be a scorcher (like always!) Thank goodness Texas has some of the best swimming holes around to catch a break from the brutal summer heat.

Whether you’re new to the area or you’re a creature of habit and frequent the same watering holes each summer, I’ve compiled a list of the best places around.

Hamilton Pool Preserve (Dripping Springs)

Hamilton Pool one of Texans’ favorite swimming holes. You’ll need a reservation and make sure to book in advanced because they book up fast. With the gorgeous jade green water and cascading waterfalls, this is one of the most serene places to cool off this summer. However, swimming is not guaranteed with your reservation and swimming is currently not allowed but
