Georgetown Texas is a growing town with a lot of small town feeling.
Known as “The County Seat of Williamson County” downtown Georgetown is a historic area with tons of character. There are shops galore, restaurants, a theater with live performances and much more. Market Day is held on the Square on the 2nd Saturday of each month from March to November; you will find local vendors selling arts and crafts, plants, jewelry and in my opinion some of the best homemade jams and jellies around. Be sure to bring the family, every age is welcome.
Voted #2 in the 100 Best Places to Live by Money in 2008 probably helps explain why in the last few years Georgetown has grown. New subdivisions and additions to established subdivisions are common, as well as new commercial buildings. All of this growth has finally forced Georgetown to open a second high school in 2009, well, it is actually a 9th grade center for now and each year an additional grade will be added until there are 2 fully functioning high schools.

Lake Georgetown is a few minutes from downtown – heck, everything in Georgetown is a few minutes from downtown! Lake Georgetown offers camping sites with and without hook ups, boat ramps, fishing docks when the water is low enough and tons of bank to sit and fish from or to take a swim. Every April the poppys bloom and come to life and the town celebrates with The Red Poppy Festival. There are rodeos and parades downtown in the San Gabriel Park, Halloween hay rides, town football pep rallies and don’t forget Inner Space Caverns right off I35.
Georgetown Eagle Football
My son just reminded me I have to mention football more than I have – Georgetown, Texas is a town that is proud of it’s high school football team. You will see the football boy’s pictures on the local business walls and if you haven’t seen the new stadium just look for the big lights in the sky when you are looking north. For a small town Georgetown has one heck of a football stadium – let alone football team – GO EAGLES!
Yet, Georgetown is only 30 miles (give or take depending on where in Austin you are going) from Austin.
