Round Rock is a thriving city that has become a major center for economic development in Central Texas, while cultivating an excellent quality of life. We are home to global companies and thousands of innovative small businesses, but it is our award-winning schools, healthcare, and fine neighborhoods that really make Round Rock a great place to call home.

We are recognized for our award-winning master plan, park system, and school district, while being one of the safest, most affordable cities in the country.
