Bastrop County Reviews
Although not large like Austin, Bastrop County has grown immensely over the past years. It has the essential stores that one needs and is currently expanding on creating stores that offer tech support, home goods, and doctors. At the moment, Bastrop County is building a hospital to attend the needs of the people quicker, instead of driving all the way to Smithville or Austin. However, Bastrop County has grown in size and their is many traffic issues, such as accidents, speeding, and road rage. Overall good county, but needs better management of roads.
I have been in Bastrop since the middle of 5th grade and right now, I am in my last semester of high school. I love Bastrop. Even though there are some stores that i wish we had here in Bastrop, it is still my home. Bastrop is still recovering from the horrible fire that occurred a couple of years ago, but in it's own unique way, it is pretty. The state park is a really great park for people who like to go hiking. I myself have been there alot and all the hiking trails are different. There are trails for people who dont want a really heavy exercise but there are also heavy and steep trails for the folks who do want a challenging hiking trail. There is a pool that is open during the summer. There is also a little playground to keep the little kids busy.
Bastrop is a cute town that is drastically growing! Main street keeps it's historic charm and where most of the night life happens. The parks are beautiful and the library resourceful. Decent school districts. Bastrop likes to hold art festivities and yearly events like Bastrop River Clean up and Yesterfest. A family oriented community and just about thirty minutes outside of Austin, Texas where the State Capitol is. Bastrop even has a Hyatt Regency to escape and relax in natures scenic beauty. And let's not forget it even has a state park.
