    Like the title says. If anyone here lives in either of these two cities can you tell me what you think and what not. I am looking for information on cost of living, jobs, social, crime, ect.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Hey Michael,

    I live in Round Rock, just north of Austin and I love it here. The job, economy and housing markets seem to be doing better here than most parts of the country. I moved here from Dallas and love what Austin has to offer without all the traffic. Austin is called the "Live Music Capital of the World". There is always a club or bar to go see some great music and Austin hosts 2 huge music festivals each year, SXSW South by Southwest & ACL Austin City Limits Music Festival.

    If you are a sports fan you have all the UT sports, AAA Baseball - Round Rock Express Houston Astros affiliate, Minor League Basketball - Austin Toro's & Minor League Hockey - Dallas Stars Affiliate. San Antonio is only 90 min. away so you can go to Spurs games. Dallas & Houston are only 3 hours away as well.

    I chose Round Rock over Austin proper for the schools and smaller town feel (at least that is how it felt when I moved here :lol:).

    You can find a lot of information Round Rock or any other city at Round Rock, Texas (TX) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, sex offenders, news, sex offenders

    If you have any specific questions don't hesitate to ask!
