With a stately name like Georgetown, you would expect to find a place with history, elegance, and that slow, easy, down-home feel. Georgetown, Texas is all of that and more. Rich with history and big on hometown pride, the Georgetown Square brings people from all around to celebrate festivals, watch Christmas tree lightings, listen to live music, shop, and experience "The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas!"
But we are more than just a town square. Georgetown is home to Southwestern University, the oldest university in Texas. We boast some of the finest public parks, including San Gabriel park, which offers vistas and events to entertain and impress everyone in your family, including the four-legged family members. Blue Hole Park, right on the San Gabriel river, is a great place to take your dogs for a dip in the water in the heat of summer.
There is also a plethora of unique local restaurants, with dining options ranging from burgers to high tea. And of course, there is some pretty amazing Tex-Mex. In and around the square, you will find something for every palate and craving -- and most are within walking distance to the square!
It may be a small town, but we live large, and we don't compromise when it comes to amenities. We have fine dining, resort hotels, cutting-edge medical centers, and the best seasonal festivals! Georgetown is the kind of place you visit once, then find that you are home.
