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!

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!
