Community Traditions in Georgetown
Georgetown is proud to honor our country’s heritage and celebrate as a community every 4th of July. The festivities in San Gabriel Park help keep our community strong, and the crowds that gather for the 4th are getting bigger every year as our city grows.
In the year 2000, there were less than 30k people living in Georgetown. Today, there are an estimated 95k people living in our city. The population explosion we’re experiencing didn’t happen by accident…
Georgetown grew so quickly because families started to discover that Georgetown is a perfect place to live. You get the elbow room of Texas Hill Country, but it’s also close to Austin. You can be in a meeting in Austin in the morning and fishing in the North Fork San Gabriel River in the early afternoon. It’s beautiful, convenient, close to the city, and is a great community for kids to grow up in.
If you’re among the many looking for a new home that’s close to Austin but away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Parmer Ranch in Georgetown is worth your attention. Our community features great schools, amenities, new homes, and is conveniently located in the Texas Hill Country.
