Thirty minutes from downtown Austin is one Texan city that should be on the radars of all travelers these days. Quaint and quirky, Georgetown oozes of character thanks to its lovely Victorian architecture, independent boutiques, coffee shops, and pretty public parks. Along with the “Most Beautiful Town Square,” this darling destination offers a lot to discover indoors and out.
A good place to begin exploring is the Downtown Historic District. History buffs enjoy touring the halls of the Old Williamson County Jail which dates back to 1888 and the 1911 Courthouse, while those who prefer watching plays and musicals should get tickets to the latest show at The Palace Theatre for later in the evening. Just off the square on Main Street in the Historic Firehouse No. 1, the Georgetown Art Center is an inviting gathering place to view colorful, creative works from local and national artists. Blue Hole Park, set along the south of the San Gabriel River, is a tranquil spot to admire the limestone bluffs and the scenic lagoon. To the north is San Gabriel Park, a popular destination for families wanting to picnic, play Frisbee or fish. Another attraction to add to the itinerary is the Inner Space Cavern, a spectacular cave that was recently discovered in 1963 that features trails, hidden passageways, stalactite formations, fossils, and other surprises. Meanwhile, budding astronomers should stop by Fountainwood Observatory at Southwestern University when the sun goes down to look up at the stars. Plus, the viewing nights are free and open to the public, so don’t miss out.
Strolling around and seeing everything is best when there's no rain. So keep in mind that April, August, and October have the least precipitation. Regardless, visitors can pretty much expect comfortable temperatures year-round.
