Current Resident: I would consider the Commute Time and Cost of Living to be the biggest downsides of Austin, TX. It's a huge and rapidly growing city, which means everything is pretty expensive and traffic is bad. However, I have lived here for the past 5 years and I love it! There is so much diversity and so much to do. There are so many different people from different backgrounds to meet, and so many experiences to have in Austin! There are a bunch of opportunities for jobs and different eats and shops downtown. I live in South Austin, which is decently far from downtown but still has a lot going on (and still has cruddy traffic ^-^). ... I've spent all of my high school experience in Austin. The school I go to has it's down sides, but it's pretty great. My high school in Austin has definitely been better than my middle school in Austin. It's definitely family-friendly. Especially the suburban neighborhoods. ... Overall, Austin is a great place to live.

Current Resident: I loved growing up in Round Rock. My parents chose to live here because the schools are good, it has a low crime rate and the cost of living is reasonable. Outdoor recreation is abundant such as boating, biking, running, fishing, hiking, swimming, outdoor theater and many, many others. There are lots of historic sites. The Chisholm Trail runs right through the center of town. The Sam Bass cemetery contains graves of people born before the American Revolution. Round Rock has the feel of a small town with easy access to larger cities. Round Rock is about 23 miles north of Austin proper. The food here is the best! Everyone knows about Texas barbecue; no food anywhere can even compare. The weather is fantastic, with Round Rock boasting about 300 days of sunshine per year. The people are friendly and there is a strong sense of community. All in all, Round Rock is a great place to live...
