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.

Current Resident: Austin Texas is a city that has become a true metroplex over the last ten years and includes all of Travis & Williamson Counties and cities including Round Rock, Pflugerville, Westlake, Manor, Leander, Cedar Park, and Liberty Hill.(to name a few). The Austin area has a thriving economy, warm and accepting population, and a culture that places community with a focus on individuality at its core. Sought out by technology, scientific, and business for it’s highly educated residents, Austin also possesses the States flagship University (UofTX Austin) which adds to the cities energy. Austin is the capital of Texas and is a hotbed for State and Federal governmental careers. The city is a wonderful combination of Urban, urban/suburban, Suburban, and rural areas that mesh well with each other and allow Austinites to live and experience many lifestyles within a short drive. Cost of living is expensive but so are salaries so most people live comfortably. Austin is a great place!
