Georgetown, Texas has over 180 homes and buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Recently named the “Fastest Growing City in the U.S.”, Georgetown is home to just over 58,000 people. It is the perfect balance of “small town charm” with all the conveniences of larger cities. Those moving from larger cities will be pleasantly surprised by the range in shopping, healthcare, and entertainment found in the area.
“Georgetown is considered one of the prettiest cities in Williamson County, especially during the spring and summer months when poppies and wild flowers are in full bloom. … residents who settle into one of the city’s restored Victorian homes or new Tuscan villas can enjoy a walk along the bank of the San Gabriel River or play a round of golf on one of the five local courses. Mountain biking trails around Lake Georgetown lead riders to the edge of Texas Hill Country,” says Fortune Magazine in its description of Georgetown.
