The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas
Georgetown might be known as the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,” but the Georgetown Visitors Center promises that Georgetown is anything but square! Located in the heart of Williamson County, Georgetown is the county seat of Williamson County; it is the hub of county government. Less than 15 minutes from all of Williamson County’s cities and bisected by Interstate 35, Georgetown is conveniently located in Williamson County in Central Texas.
Georgetown is a great place to enjoy the San Gabriel Riverbank or play a round of golf on one of the five local courses. Biking trails around Lake Georgetown lead riders to the edge of the famous Texas Hill Country. Georgetown’s annual food and arts festivals, independently-owned restaurants, rodeo, nearby wineries, and Victorian commercial architecture are enough to keep residents close to home with plenty of excitement.
