Bastrop is a robust, small town with big city stores and vibes. It has recovered well since the wildfire of a few years ago and to this day there are new stores being added. Bow because of its rapid growth, traffic is increasingly growing and there is continuous construction to the main highway that runs theough the town causing many headaches. Downtown is very beautiful and takes you back in time to the historic days. It’s definitely a place to visit or retire in!

The community of Bastrop has a lot to offer. From its places to eat to the community involvement, Bastrop is definitely the place to live. The community is small so there's not overcrowding and we are close with one another. There are plenty of nice neighborhoods such as the Colony or River Crossing that offer beautiful houses to live in. The Colorado River runs right through the city of Bastrop. I often enjoy taking walks along it with my friends at Fisherman's Park. Fisherman's Park also offers a trail of lights during Christmas time, fireworks for Fourth of July, a Halloween festival, (etc.).
Bastrop is great! Downtown is beautiful with the Colorado river running close by! The town could use some remodeling though as there are some areas that seem like an eye sore.
