Suburbia rules!

Round Rock has grown on me. I was not sure about it at first as since we have been here my time is split between being overseas and here. My wife and son love living here and honestly we would not dream of returning to CA unless some one just wanted to pay obscene amounts of money.

RR is close enough to Austin that you can enjoy all the things it has to offer but is also far enough away that it has its own identity and is safer. Add in that it has one of the highest densities of Concealed Handgun Licenses and it makes the folks really polite. You just don't know who is packing heat!

RR is also the home of Dell Computers where my nephew works. He lovingly/hatefully calls it "Dellcatraz". RR is really the Irvine of the Greater Austin, Texas area!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cheaper than California
  • Cons:Hot summers, cold winters
  • In a nutshell:A nice boring middle class town

    I think the gun range is in Pflugerville.

    2 huge parks each with disc golf, several football and baseball fields, one with a cricket field, and fishing, the other with bike trails. A sports multicomplex, several Y's, a waterpark, oh I could go on and on...

    I had no idea where Round Rock was. Seems like a nice part of America.
