    I've lived here for years. The city itself is very nice. Although the state is conservative, the county is very moderate, with liberal leanings, which is a good thing. The city is a suburb of Austin, TX and is very near. I live near public transit which takes me to downtown Austin. However, I wish there was more public transit in the city itself. The city has a great education program, with over average SAT scores and plenty of public funding. And if you don't like the public schools, there are good charter options around. The city offers many chain restaurants and has many places to shop. It is more technologically centered given that the Dell HQ is located here. The traffic at times is pretty bad and the weather can get very hot and humid, but there are plenty of parks in the city and in the greater Austin metropolitan area where you can hike and go to swimming holes. Overall, a great place to live.

    If I had the option to change where I was born and raised, I would definitely choose this area. There is very little crime, the people are, almost all, friendly, and there are plenty of small businesses that help young people get into the workforce. I think that compared to other areas of the country, Round Rock has to be one of the best. I see that this area is growing continuously and that the school system will continue to improve as time goes on, but that it won't lose its small town feel.

    The newer neighborhoods are mostly very similar houses, but they are typically fairly nice. The older neighborhoods have more variation in the style of houses and typically larger yards. Utilities are fairly comparable between different locations. Very few properties are vacant or abandoned.
