Please make yourself useful and either bring rain or cool weather on your way in.

It's hot! Miserably hot! That is normal in July and August, but there's nothing that can prepare you for this miserable heat!

Other than that, it's a great place to live.

You're moving from Conneticut to Texas??? Save some boxes and sell all your winter gear. You will not need snow tires either. Good luck with the move and I hope you enjoy the area.

Just out of curiosity, why are you making such a big move?

Here is a link you might find interesting or helpful. It isn't specifically about Round Rock, but it covers the whole Austin area including Round Rock.

Well, the climate is *much* better than Connecticut in the Winter, obviously. Summers might be a bit rough, though!

I think you'd like Round Rock quite a bit.

After a month of research we have narrowed our search between RR and Georgetown thank you for all the postings, we are moving from Cincinnati our kids are not a concern they are in college. My wife is happy any where as long as there is shopping, my passion is hunting big game (deer turkey) I only have to drive 20 miles to be at my honey hole here. Will I be able to find the same around the RR george town area?

Shopping is not a problem. The hunting will need to be further out on the outskirts of the area, probably more than 20 miles away. Try googling the hunting parks.

You shouldn't really have a problem finding hunting within a reasonable drive, depending on what you're looking for. Maybe more than 20 miles, maybe not, depending on season and what you're hunting. Dove hunting, for example, goes on all around us and should be just east of the area you're speaking of, as well.

You'll likely need a hunting lease, and definitely the appropriate permit(s).
