Why live in Vista West? For starters, it may be a cliché, but consider location, location, and again, location. Outside of the downtown core, you would be hard pressed to find another Austin neighborhood to match the vitality, solid family feel, and opportunities for shopping, dining and recreation found in the area around Vista West. Minutes away on Mesa Drive, sample fine cuisine at Mirabelle or Mesa Ranch, or have a bite at one of scores of more casual eateries. Shop for wine and cheese at Grape Vine Market, or have a great dinner with your movie at the Anderson Lane branch of the Alamo Drafthouse (which Entertainment Weekly named "Best Theater in America"). After your excursions, come home to a verdant neighborhood set amid tall, leafy trees and hills, where total privacy is a given.
If you're a dog lover, Bull Creek District Park, along Lakewood Drive, is dog heaven – a leash-free park and greenbelt trail with a spring-fed water supply creek (one of two in Austin, and perfect for a dip on a warm day for you or your four-legged companion), volleyball court, hike-and-bike trails and picnic areas. (Come to think of it, it's one of the best neighborhood parks in Austin we can think of even if you don't own a dog.) The Bull Creek Watershed, which includes Vista West, is a 32-acre micro-environment that some have called "The Galapagos of Texas" because of the quirky species that thrive there, such as the Golden-cheeked Warbler, an endangered species of bird that nests only in the Lone Star State.
With Vista West's proximity to Austin's major highways, your downtown commute will be a breeze. Also in close proximity are Austin's major upscale shopping malls like the Arboretum and Lakeline Mall, along with the newest additions to the scene, The Domain and The Shops at Arbor Walk.
