Compare Round Rock to Top 10 Best Places
Once merely a bedroom community of Austin, Round Rock today is very much its own city thanks largely to three things: affordable housing, excellent schools and computer maker Dell, which has established its headquarters here.
The city boasts three medical centers and a campus of Texas State University. There's a lot of shopping, from an IKEA to a premium outlet mall, and a minor league baseball team, the Round Rock Express.
Residents enjoy more than 800 acres of open space, two golf courses and 64-mile-long Lake Travis, just west of the city.
