Living In Round Rock
Picture yourself strolling alongside (or even in) the placid waters of Brushy Creek on Chisholm Trail, flanked by dense verdant woods and contrasted by stark white rock. Suddenly, you happen upon a circular toadstool of rock, jutting up from the water, exclaiming to the world, “I’m pretty much the reason people first came here.” You can’t help but agree.
Round Rock Texas has evolved from Ice Age big game hunting site to Native American Crossroads; from cotton production to sleepy suburb community; and finally, into an economic hub. All along the way, the iconic “round rock” was at the center of it all.
Yes, there’s actually a round rock in Round Rock!
Just 20 minutes north of downtown Austin lies this wonderfully charming city of around 130,000 lucky souls that was given the elusive grade of A+ by niche.com for livability. Just what goes into that score? I’m glad you asked. Using data sources from the IRS, FBI, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, US Census Bureau, and others, Niche has calculated that Round Rock has:
Excellent Public Schools
Good Weather and Climate
Extensive Outdoor Activities
A Culture that is Ideal for Families
Unequaled Career Opportunities
A City of Prosperity
One of the city’s defining characteristics is career opportunities. Round Rock is famously known for being the international headquarters for Dell Technologies, but there’s far more than that. Thanks to the Economic Development Partnership between the city of Round Rock and the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce (made up of 1,000 investors), the city is home to increasing prosperity. As a snapshot, the chamber estimates that their projects and programs from 2011-2014 directly led to $1.3 billion in annual economic output, including job creation.
