Round Rock ranks No. 4 on Livability’s top 25 places to live in the Southwest 

Published on September 19, 2023 under RRnews

The City of Round Rock has ended up in the No. 4 spot on Livability’s 2023 list for the Top 25 Best Places to Live in the Southwest.

To determine these rankings, Livability looks at a variety of factors such as amenities, affordability, economy, education, healthcare and overall quality of life to determine the rankings. Round Rock is always taking into consideration these factors when making decisions for the betterment of the community.

Here’s what Livability had to say about Round Rock:

“A fast-growing suburb of Austin, Round Rock, TX, is home to 129,785 residents (and counting) who enjoy all types of livability perks, including an award-winning park system, safe neighborhoods, and ample career opportunities with industry-leading employers like Dell Technologies, Emerson Automation Solutions and Toppan Photomasks. 

As one of the best places to live in the Southwest, Round Rock offers more than three dozen developed parks, including a Play for All Abilities Park, a treasure for central Texas with features like a sensory pod sandbox, a nature area and an all-abilities treehouse. Old Settlers Park is another community favorite with 640 acres of rolling countryside and a place where neighbors gather for festivals. Downtown Round Rock is adorable, too, with historical buildings, ice cream shops, Merry’s Mud Pottery House, PopUp Art Shows and a collection of restaurants serving everything from barbecue to shaved ice and brisket queso (yup, you’ll find it at Finley’s Kitchen and Bar).

Health care also scores high in Round Rock, as residents can access comprehensive care with doctors’ offices, trauma care centers at great hospitals like Ascension Seton Williamson Hospital and more than 8,400 health practitioners in Williamson County.”

Ten other Texas cities were mentioned on the list, including Flower Mound, Sugar Land and Midland.
