Living in Georgetown, TX
Welcome to Georgetown!
Georgetown has always been a place that drew people in for a variety of different reasons. Dating back to the start of the town, Georgetown was known for the fertile black soil, and it has only continued to grow since the 1840s. With the construction of Interstate 35 and the growth around Austin came expansion and renewed vibrancy throughout the area. In fact, Georgetown is the 7th fastest growing city in the U.S.
Austin brings hustle and bustle, but for those that are looking for a more relaxed lifestyle and a community that thrives at a slower pace, Georgetown may be exactly what you’re looking for. Just 30 miles from the big city, Georgetown offers you the chance to explore Austin and commute easily when you need to.
History covers the streets and town square. The fully renovated and functioning 100+-year-old courthouse is the epitome of the charm and old-world classics that the historic district is known for. It should come as no surprise that the oldest university in Texas, Southwestern University, was founded in Georgetown and is located just a half-mile from The Square. The Square is a historic masterpiece, but it also offers an assortment of dining options and boutiques to explore.
Lake Georgetown is another hub that connects residents to the community. Many neighborhoods offer easy access to the lake and have their own hiking and biking trails as well as parks to spend afternoons with their families. Georgetown is a picturesque town in its own right, but the views they offer of Hill Country are awe-inspiring.
If you’re considering moving to Georgetown, you can expect to find a wide range of housing options, prices, and amenities offered. Many of the modern homes have custom designs and sit on 1+ acres of land. You can explore floorplans, privacy, and neighborhoods that fit your list of wants and needs, but whatever you’re searching for, Georgetown is sure to have it in abundance.
If the Victorian-era has always spoken to you, you’ll love the numerous homes and commercial spaces that pay homage to the time period with architectural style. For gardeners and flower enthusiasts, you’ll find joy in the red poppies that bloom throughout the town. Truth be told, Georgetown is known as the "Red Poppy" Capital of Texas for how many of the wildflowers you can admire in the area. There’s even a Red Poppy Festival, which attracts up to 30,000 visitors every April.
Don’t wait until then to see what Georgetown’s all about. Plan a trip and fall in love with the town that may house your next forever home!
