Explore the city of Round Rock in your RV rental from RVshare! Once a sleepy community, the city of Round Rock is now one of most progressive cities in Texas. Two significant events played an important role in the development of the city; the first one was the economic impact of Interstate 35 which was built at the edge of the town in the 1950’s and established the city as a vibrant commercial center; and the second one was when Dell moved its headquarters to Round Rock providing a significant number of jobs to its residents. Although Round Rock is a major center for economic growth in Central Texas, it has retained its old charm and small town feel. In fact in 2007, Money Magazine named the city as “the seventh-best American small city in which to live”.
Do not be deceived by its size, it might be a small city compared to the other big cities in Texas but it a bustling town full of attractions and activities to see and enjoy. We have listed our favorites, which we think you will enjoy in an RV rental Round Rock TX too!
