Marble Falls is known for many things, but the city is probably best known for supplying the beautiful pink granite that helped build the Texas Capitol in Austin. Located in the middle of the Texas Hill Country on the Colorado River, Marble Falls is 47 miles northwest of Austin and 85 miles north of San Antonio.
Its location in the middle of the Highland Lakes area, the largest chain of lakes in Texas, makes it ideal for boating enthusiasts, and many people have vacation and retirement homes here. Marble Falls is also a relatively affordable place to live with median home prices in the $280s and prices that go higher for homes within lake communities.
