Having recently moved to Round Rock, I was pleasantly surprised with the closeness and the friendly atmosphere of the town. It also has a few unique specialties, such as the Round Rock Donut Shop, which certainly serves as a unifying thread. I would certainly recommend to anyone considering a move the wonderful town of Round Rock!

If I could describe my experience with Round Rock in one word, it would be home. After being born in raised in Austin for my toddler years, Me and my family moved to Round Rock and we've loved it ever since. I've always seen it as a small cute community in disguise, because it truly is growing in tremendous way. Now residing in College a couple hours away, I can definitely say the homesickness sets in deeply when I reflect on all of my favorite places to eat and shop that are there or even 15 minutes down the road. Speaking of roads the only problem I've noticed is the common rugged roads found in most of the neighborhoods including mine, but I am proud to see when I visit home that there are many renovations being made!
Round Rock is a very nice, and very safe city. I love living here, to me, this place is home. It is close enough to Austin so that you can do Austin activities, but far enough that you don't have to live the busy city life. It's a rather calm town with lots of activities to offer. Round Rock is the sports capital of Texas, and a lot of baseball is played here. We even have our own Minor League Baseball Team, the Round Rock Express, Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers! The community is filled with such nice people, and i am proud to live here.
