Many families and young professionals live in Hutto. It was named the #1 Austin Suburb for Young Couples after all! One of the unique things you will see throughout the community is residents and business owners proudly displaying their concrete hippos. At last count there were over 3,000 of them. There has been a lot of appreciation in home prices here as of late. Some of its best neighborhoods are Carmel Creek, Star Ranch, and the Lookout at Brushy Creek.
