Georgetown, Texas has grown considerably from the once small town it once was. Located just about 30 miles north of downtown Austin, it has grown into a great alternative for homeowners wanting a slower paced life with Texas Hill Country surroundings. Georgetown represents the seat of Williamson County and maintains its Courthouse Historic District. Thanks to its careful attention to preserving the past, Victorian-era storefronts and brick walks under antique streetlights greet visitors and locals in the town center. The oldest university in Texas, Southwestern University, founded in 1840 is also located in the city. Home buyers can choose from one-acre lots to cozy neighborhoods, new and old. Many homes come in a wide range of prices and options from custom and semi-custom builders. Just outside the city limits, buyers can find options for acreage properties with amazing panoramic Hill Country views. There are many things for locals to do in Georgetown including Inner Space Cavern. The Blue Hole swimming on the San Gabriel River attracts plenty of water lovers. Live music in summer concerts entertain the whole family on the Courthouse Square. Berry Springs Park and Preserve attracts nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts of all types.
