The city of Austin has been making headlines around the country for years. Between being one of the nation’s biggest technological hubs and festivals like South By Southwest bringing flocks of new people to visit every year, it’s no wonder why so many are relocating to our state’s capital.
However, there is another up and coming town in Central Texas.
For the past few years, Round Rock has been making quite a few “best cities” lists. Most recently, it was voted as the safest city in Texas and is home to Dell’s Headquarters.
If you and your family are looking to relocate to a suburb just a quick drive away from downtown Austin, Round Rock may be for you.
Need more convincing? Here’s Buffington Mortgage Group’s list of best things to do in Round Rock.
Round Rock Express Games
You won’t need to drive all the way to Dallas or Houston for some quality baseball. The Round Rock Express team, AAA affiliate to the Texas Rangers, play at the infamous Dell Diamond. Enjoy a hot dog, root for the home team and be “wowed” by fireworks on a nice summer evening.
Old Settlers Park
Whether your family enjoys soccer, basketball, baseball or just running around outside, Old Settlers Park is the place for you. The park is over 645 acres with features such as two pavilions and a lake nearby. In the spring, you can take in all of the beautiful wildflowers, such as the Texas Bluebonnet.
McNeil Bridge Bats
The South Congress Street bridge bats are a famous attraction in Austin. However, they are not the only creatures of the night lurking around in Central Texas. From March through November, grab a blanket and some head coverings and watch the bats emerge from the Interstate 35 overpass at McNeil Road.
Round Rock Donuts
They say that everything is bigger in Texas. At Round Rock Donuts, this is most certainly true. Take a bite out of these delicious treats and try the famous Texas Donut! Your taste buds will definitely be glad that you did.
Rock’N River Water Park
It is no secret that Texas summers can get hot. What better way to cool off than to bring the whole family to a water park? Relax in the Watering Hole or get your thrills out of The Quarry adventure area.
Stroll Around Downtown Round Rock
Support the local economy and check out restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops. On parents night out, you can visit some of the famous local breweries as well!
