Schools in Round Rock are better IMO. We live in north Austin, are zoned to Pflugerville schools, but I send my kids to school in Round Rock. (Divorced with joint custody so using his address.) I don't think Pflugerville schools are bad though. But I like that my daughter can go to a high school with an IB program, seemingly better academics, and seems like more sports/activities, but that may because RR is bigger.

Other than that I think the areas are pretty similar as far living. Obviously Pflugerville is much smaller, but you also have easy access to Austin as it all blends together. If you have to work or be in Austin a lot I'd go with Pflugerville because the traffic can be pretty bad. We won't move to RR simply because the commute would be terrible into Austin everyday. I think RR would be a great choice if you can work in the area because it's large enough you would not have to come to Austin frequently unless you wanted to.

But everyone has different experiences. Too many people complain about Wilco for them all to be crazy.

I can only speak for MYSELF, and I personally have never had any problems.
You say this but in an earlier post say you have absolutely zero experience with law enforcement from either. So if you have zero experience than why would you value your non-experience more than another who has had experiences involving law enforcement in those places?

I have heard so many horror stories regarding their cops and courts. After all the horrifying recent national media Williamson County and its disgustingly crooked court systems has received I find it to be a huge national embarrassment to Central Texas. Heck I find it to be almost as big an embarrassment to Texas as that idiot aggy we have for a Governor.

Because I don't trust anonymous posters on the internet.

Most posters complaining about Wilco say that you can't even walk out your front door with out a SWAT team descending on you and arresting you for not wearing clean underwear.

As I have walked out my front door whilst living in Wilco several times without being attacked, my experience of NOT having problems trumps their ridiculous stories of being singled out.

I don't have ZERO experience sir.....I have not had any experiences with law enforcement going out of their way to get me, which is what the whiny people on here are saying happens.

If their stories were believeable, then perhaps I would listen to them. If they had more reputation points, or if I had more experience with their veracity as posters, then perhaps I would listen to them.

But most Wilco horror stories are just people ranting, the details make no sense, and ultimately we usually find out that the poster if lying and has a chip on their shoulder b/c they broke the law and expected to get away with it.

Why would I listen to them and take their words as the gospel truth? Seems rather foolish to me....but to each their own.

Yes, Wilco is a horrible fascist gulag, run by totally corrupt nazi fanatics who will crush the life out of all you innocent people. Our Gestapo squads are setting up checkpoints everywhere to accelerate the county's revenue stream as we speak.

Please DO NOT move here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, gotta go - a SWAT team is banging on my door and there are black helicopters hovering overhead.

I have a friend who is a defense attorney, and he says: "In Williamson County innocence is taken into consideration in the sentencing."

I'd recommend starting a fresh thread, rather than tag on to one that's a whiner sounding board. A new thread that pinpoints your concerns/desires will get you some good information.

Both offer the same as far as I'm concerned.

I'd stick to east round rock if his job is in Pflugerville or Pflugerville proper. both are basically sister cities.
