From the tech hub of Austin to Round Rock, from Horseshoe Bay to Fredericksburg, the Central Texas Hill Country is the ideal location for those seeking the best of both worlds: city access and the luxury of quiet escapes.
Any real estate purchase is better when done in a healthy and growing economy. Known as a global leader in the energy industry, the state of Texas is the main HQ for Fortune 500 companies such as Exxon Mobil, BP, Conoco Phillips, Marathon Oil, Tesoro, and Valero. Also considered an educational haven, the Central Texas region comprises Austin, the second most populous state capital in the country and home to the University of Texas at Austin. College Station is home to the main campus of Texas A&M University and not to be overlooked is Round Rock, headquarters for the world’s largest privately held technology company, Dell. All signs pointing to an economy that’s stronger than ever.
Whether you stay home or venture out, the unique experiences of Central Texas make for a spectacular lifestyle. With hundreds of activities at your disposal, you might find it hard to stay-in when the Texas Wine Country is just ninety minutes away. The Fredericksburg area features 15 wineries known to be reminiscent of the wine growing regions of central Italy and the Rhone Valley in France. If the native Texas flora interests you, head to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center to see what’s blooming and growing for the season. The Center, founded by former first lady, Lady Bird Johnson, and actress Helen Hayes, houses over 650 native Texas plant species in gardens, meadows and nature trails. If water adventures or fishing beckons, escape to one of the nearby lakes.
