Round Rock is a larger-than-average sized city that brings in quaint visitors and residents. Falling inside the post-oak savannah Gould ecoregion, there is an actual iconic round rock! The round rock in Brushy Creek is where old 19th century wagons made low water crossings. There are many parks to explore including old settlers Park as well as trails to visit like the chisolm trail at the Chisolm Trail park which aren't far neighbors to the Rock'n River Waterpark. There is a small downtown area near Mays street where nightlife is centered, but traveling to Austin can be a more lively experience.

I like that it is a place for growing families. Even though we're a suburb of Austin, Texas we still offer laid back country fun! There are plenty of family fun places to go like the YMCA which has plenty of events for the entire family. There's a large baseball stadium called Dell Diamond with parks nearby, parking space, and fields for having picnics, RV parking, carnival set ups, and soccer games or any type of field game. They also have good elementary with after school programs, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. Within two years, there will be a large water resort with a hotel which will even create more fun and excitement for visitors passing through!
Round Rock is an excellent place to raise a family! From top-tier schools to a community that is laden with caring people, Round Rock is by far one of the greatest cities in Texas! I was born in Round Rock, and lived there for 15 years. In the 15 years that I lived in Round Rock, Texas, I can honestly say that the city has everything that a person could ask for. The city is filled with delicious restaurants and various forms of entertainment, such as parks and malls. Whether you are a young single person looking for work, or a person who has a family to raise, Round Rock is by far the greatest city to live in! With that being said, the only thing that I would change about Round Rock is the inclusion of more hiking trails!
