Located just 26 miles north of Austin’s Central Business District, Georgetown is a quaint small town in Central Hill Country, known for its Victorian architecture and for being the “red poppy capital” of Texas.
Every April, Georgetown hosts the Red Poppy Festival, where you can feast your eyes upon the gorgeous sunburnt red poppies while listening to country music stars like Brandon Ryder and Restless Heart.
It is home to beautiful Southwestern University, founded in 1840, the oldest university in Texas, and a number of neighborhoods listed under the National Historic Register.
In Central Hill Country, Georgetown offers natural wonders, like the Inner Space Cavern and nearby Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. The San Gabriel River runs through the city, providing over 30 miles of hike and bike trails.
