We Opened an Office in Round Rock. Here’s Why It’s a Great Place to Live and Work
DURATION 4 minute read
Round Rock may have the atmosphere of a small town but that doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck with nothing to do. The hill country city has everything from fly fishing spots to a vibrant downtown district.
Jones|Carter has been in the Austin-metro area for nearly 20 years. To better serve our growing client base and Central Texas team, we recently opened an office in Round Rock. We are excited to better serve the Round Rock community and those around it. Our team’s goal is to improve the community where we live and work, and we are delighted to add Round Rock to our growing list of office locations.
In light of the expansion, our team compiled a list of fun things to do in Round Rock that make this community a great place to live and work.
Spend a Day in the Park
There’s no better way to enjoy the fall weather than spending the day in one of Round Rock’s parks. You can take your four-legged friends to the Dog Depot Dog Park, feed the ducks at Old Settlers Park or let the kids enjoy the 51,000-square foot Play for All Abelites Park. With over 2,270-acres of parks, trails and open spaces, the opportunities are endless.
Catch a Game at Dell Diamond Field
Dell Diamond Field is home to the Round Rock Express, the number one triple-A team in the Pacific Coast League American Southern. You can watch the Round Rock Express from April to September. When the team is not in season, the stadium hosts concerts, craft shows and other events.
Enjoy an Evening in Downtown
There’s no need to go to Austin for a night on the town. Downtown Round Rock offers a range of shops, bars and restaurants for every pallet and budget. After wining and dining you can enjoy an evening of live music on the Main. Downtown Round Rock also holds events year-round including popup art shows and cultural events.
Watch the Bats at McNeil Bridge
Like Austin, Round Rock has its own bat colony. The Mexico free-tailed bats, which are becoming a growing attraction for the city, put on an aerial show every evening from March through November. You can watch the bats enjoy their dinner around dusk under the I-35 overpass at McNeil Road in front of the Napa Auto Store. Visit Bats in Round Rock for more information.
Grab a Texas-Sized Donut at Round Rock Donuts
Satisfy your sweet tooth with a Texas-sized donut from Round Rock Donuts. The 14-inch, two-pound glazed donut has appeared on Man vs. Food and has earned the bakery a spot on the 101 Tastiest Places to Chowdown. If you don’t have room for a Texas-sized donut, you can also enjoy one of their famous standard-sized donuts or a fruit or sausage kolache.
Go Fly Fishing in Brushy Creek
Test your fly fishing skills at Brushy Creek. The creek flows through the heart of Round Rock, and unlike most creeks in the hill country, Brushy Creek fishes more like a cold water trout stream than a warm water bass creek. While at the creek, you can also view the iconic round rock that holds the city’s namesake. New to fly fishing? No problem, you can take a guided trip with Living Water Fly Fishing.
Shop for Fresh Produce at the Farmer George Farmers Market
The Farmer George Farmers Market has over 40 vendors selling everything from healthy pet treats to 100% grass-fed beef. Bring the family (four-legged friends included) and learn about where your food is sourced. The market is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Oaks Shopping Center.
Catch a Show at the Sam Bass Theater
Head to the Sam Bass Theater to enjoy an evening of theater. The longtime community theater puts on between six and seven amateur and youth productions every year. In the past, the theater has put on productions including The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Alice in Wonderland and Steel Magnolias. Visit their website to view upcoming shows and ticket information.
Tour the Round Rock Honey Factory
Take a tour of the Round Rock Honey facility to learn how the scrumptious honey is made. The tour explores honey harvesting methods and demonstrates the company’s in-house bottling methods and of course, you’ll get to try various kinds of honey along the way. The one-hour tour is available almost every Saturday.
