There’s one big reason we love living and working in Georgetown: the fantastic people that make up our community. But there’s plenty to see and do here in our small(ish) Central Texas city. In this blog, we’re sharing our team’s favorite hidden gems in our very own hometown.
Georgetown Town Square
How long has it been since you’ve wandered the shelves of a great bookstore? Lark & Owl is a fantastic local bookshop. Plus, check out their upcoming events for all sorts of activities to meet locals or try something new. From book clubs to calligraphy classes, they really do have it all.
Also in the town square is the beautiful Historic Williamson County Courthouse which is home to the Williamson Museum. Check out one of their current and traveling exhibits which showcase local artists. For those a little braver, the museum offers Ghost Tours on the First Friday of every month February through November.
You’re probably familiar with our charming Main Street, but sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses. Swing by the Visitors Center at 103 W. 7th Street and pick up a guide to a free walking tour of historic downtown Georgetown. Walk a little slower as you take in beautiful downtown Georgetown and really appreciate the beautiful architecture.
The Blue Hole Park is a must-visit for locals and visitors alike. This scenic lagoon is just five blocks north of the town square. A 1.3 mile trail leads you to an oasis in the middle of our city! The miniature waterfall creates a relaxing atmosphere for when you need a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of life.
For a getaway right near home Lake Georgetown offers something for everyone! There’s a wildlife preserve and over 16 miles of hiking trails to enjoy the great outdoors. We prefer to be on the water, as the lake is great for fishing. And if you’re looking for a local staycation, there are campsites available for rent.
Everyone has their favorites, and these are ours! For a crowd-pleaser, check out 600 Degrees Pizzeria. They have a dizzying array of inventive pizza toppings. If meat is on your mind, try some good ol’ Texas barbecue from Hello Sweetie BBQ. It’s a homey spot that’s family owned and operated – one of the many reasons we love it. Make sure you save room for dessert – the banana pudding is a must-have. Want a casual but truly Texas experience, you can’t go wrong with Blue Corn Harvest Bar & Grill. This restaurant serves up southwestern fare and is committed to buying their ingredients from local sources – everything from their produce to spirits.
Supporting Georgetown Local Businesses
DTC Air Conditioning & Heating is a Georgetown business. We are owned and operated by residents of this fine city, and most of our team lives here too. Because we’re a local business, we support other local businesses. We hope that you choose to do the same!
