Hello. Please give your opinion! My husband and I and 3 young children will be moving to the south central Texas area. We are looking for a small town, with good schools and friendly community. I want to live in a rural area where life is simple. One grocery is just fine! Looking for a safe community with family oriented neighbors. We hope to find at least 20 acres. The area we have narrowed down is east of 35 because it looks a little more sloping and less rocky. Thoughts? Can anyone tell me specially about the Round Top community?
Thanks!

I was going to suggest the same. Round Top is fine, but it's (now) more of a suburb than a small community. I don't know much about La Grange, but it has a more hometown feel to me.

Lagrange and Smithville have always seemed like nice towns to me. However, I wonder if they would be bigger than you want -- my guess is that both are big enough to support more than one grocery.

Round Top is great, but it has become a bit popular. Also look up Fayetteville. Not sure how the schools are, but it is a neat little town. I've heard it's a place where you don't commonly think to lock your doors.

Round Top? Are we talking about the same place? A suburb for what town? Carmine, Burton, La Grange? It has a couple festivals, but it isn't bursting at the seems. Nice community of about 90 people, most of whom are older. Not exactly a bedroom community.

To the OP: I like La Grange over Gonzales, but the differences aren't huge.

I was thinking the same thing because I know there's a suburb of Austin named Round Rock and I used to confuse the two.
