It was named one of the Best Places to Live and Launch by CNN Money and is known for having one of the most beautiful town squares in Texas. As Austin becomes more crowded, locals, entrepreneurs, families, and seniors are choosing to move to the Georgetown, which is located 26 miles north of the state Capital.
Georgetown’s business-friendly tax structure, old-school Texas vibe, and entrepreneurial camaraderie make it the perfect place to open a business. Its population jumped 7.8 percent between mid-2014 and mid-2015 to a population of more than 50,000, and it continues to grow quickly. While home prices in Georgetown can sometimes be on the pricier side, it’s property taxes are still some of the lowest in the Metroplex and utility bills remain relatively low.
The city’s proximity to Austin allows its residents the option of heading into town for some excitement, but also enjoy the small-town vibes if they choose. Considered one of the prettier areas of Williamson County, Georgetown is flooded with poppies and wildflowers in the spring. There are tons of green spaces throughout the city, and it’s also the second city in the U.S. to be supplied by green power, they expect to be fully run by solar and wind energy by 2017!
