I moved here a year ago and I love this City! There is so much to do, from the Poppy Festival, to the weekend car shows, food trucks, nightlife, beautiful town square,and restaurants. Georgetown is just the right distance from Austin. Just a short 30 min drive. Although I have to say you would need to avoid traffic to get to Austin in that amount of time. We will never move! We love Georgetown!~

Georgetown is growing and adding new businesses constantly! It has become a fun place to live, and it truly does have the cutest little downtown square. My only complaint is that the roads have not caught up with the growth; the traffic is terrible near the interstate at rush hour.
I love Georgetown because it is different from other suburbs of ATX. I feel that Georgetown has its own diverse history from other towns, and is a city where you always will feel comfortable!
