Round Rock Real Estate
Conveniently located 15 miles north of Austin in the Texas hill country—primarily in Williamson County—Round Rock continues to climb the residential ranks with a growing population of about 100,000. Aside from the natural landscape of a classic western flick, Round Rock also prides itself as the home of some major industry, with Dell, TECO-Westinghouse, Dresser and Hospira all headquartered here. In fact, one of the largest draws for travelers and implants alike in recent years is the Dell Diamond—Round Rock’s state-of-the-art stadium and convention center—built in 2000, which serves as home to the Round Rock Express, the Texas Rangers AAA affiliate. The city has also been touted one of the safest cities in the nation, and has a top-tier school system.
Due to the city’s size and population, the Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) serves a fairly large community—Round Rock, parts of Williamson County, parts of Travis County, and parts of Austin and Cedar Park. It is a highly rated school system with many fine elementary, middle and high schools.
And, when “Rockers” have recess there’s plenty to play with. Old Settlers Park is the heart of over 1700 public outdoor acres and trails—creating 34 developed parks. Along with providing plenty of options for sports, hiking, biking and swimming—boasting three outdoor public pools—the natural spread is also home to local festivals and events.
The city is also home to a family aquatic center and several golf clubs including Forest Creek Golf Club, a nationally recognized top golf course.
If cement is more to your liking, Round Rock lets you hit the pavement in style at the Round Rock Premium Outlets, peruse local artists’ works at one of several galleries, or enjoy a night of cinema at Flix Brewhouse—similar to Austin’s renowned Alamo.
