Historic Round Rock

The other day I was showing homes in Round Rock. The day was so gorgeous I decided to grab my camera and walk around a bit in one of my favorite parts of town, the historical district. Now Round Rock is a bit different than Austin in the sense that you drive just about everywhere. But old downtown Round Rock, the historic district, is very different than the rest of Round Rock.

Dining & Shopping in Historic Round Rock

In this part of town you can easily walk around and enjoy the old buildings and the unique business in each building. From bakeries and coffee shops to fine dining and adorable boutiques, you can easily take the whole scene in by foot.

In addition to great restaurants and shops, historic Round Rock has some adorable old homes and buildings. And as Round Rock has boomed and grown from the 80’s on, these old quaint homes and buildings are harder and harder to come by. Historic Round Rock is also home to the public library and a new building, Round Rock’s new city hall.

I remember when I first moved to Austin I lived in North East Austin. Because of my location and the interstate it was very easy to zip up to Round Rock. I used to grab a book and hit the coffee shops in historic Round Rock, or just sit and enjoy the passer by’s. Occasionally it was fun to grab some friends and have a nice dinner in the area as well.
