Nestled just west of Austin’s city limits is Bee Cave, Texas. The area derived its name from the colonies of Mexican honeybees 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 laid-back atmosphere and a visit makes for a relaxing day-trip away from the hustle of downtown Austin. So, whether you’re in the mood for some retail therapy or just a quiet getaway, Bee Cave has a lot to offer.

As you drive west towards Bee Cave, you’ll notice the stunning views of the surrounding Hill Country. Plenty of parks and golf courses are laid out to make the most of the landscape, so be sure to stop by Falconhead Golf Club to swing away at one of the best courses in the area.

About 30 minutes outside of Bee Cave is the longest and fastest zipline in Texas, Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. This company prides itself on creating a safe, family friendly, and memorable experience for its customers at all times. The adventure is waiting for you.

Enjoying and protecting nature is nothing short of importance at the Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center. On 76-acres of the beautiful preserve, reserve your tickets to be able to walk through hundreds of thousands of years of geological formations, go on bird hikes, and create a sketch with a wonderful view of nature.
