Get sporty in Round Rock, the Sports Capital of Texas

Once called America's most liveable town, Round Rock is a burgeoning city and a great base for your next Texan adventure. A 20-minute drive north of Austin, Round Rock is named after the rock found in Brushy Creek. It's also known as the Sports Capital of Texas. Book a Round Rock vacation rental in Downtown and cool off at the Rock'N River Water Park, or visit the Round Rock Express baseball park, the Dell Diamond or Champion Fields at Old Settlers Park. If baseball's not your sport, try the age-old game of bargain hunting at the Round Rock Premium Outlets.

We will rock you – Round Rock's main attractions

The best place to get your bearings in the city is where it all started. The large round rock at Brushy Creek Crossing once marked the low-water crossing for Indians and early settlers. Ideal for a family-friendly vacation, spend the day at the Texas Museum of Science and Technology, which also has a planetarium. Cool off from the Texan heat at the Rock'N River Water Park. Located within the Old Settlers Park complex, it has an artificial beach, several twisting slides, and a lazy river.

Prepare for year-round hot in Round Rock

Round Rock is a year-round destination. The busiest times to visit are during the balmy summer months, between June and August, when Round Rock vacation rentals get snapped up. Summers are sizzling hot, with temperatures regularly reaching 100 degrees, but humidity is high and rain is frequent. For more comfortable temperatures, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when the days are dry, and temperatures a more manageable 70-80 degrees. Winter is cooler still, but the mercury rarely drops below 60 degrees, and snow is rare.

Sweet little rock and roller - Nature trails in Round Rock

Brushy Creek Lake Park is one of the favorites. It's home to the Brushy Creek Regional Trail, a 7-mile route which winds through Champion Park and Olsen Meadows Park, and ends at Twin Lakes Park. For something a little more substantial, take a 4-minute drive west to Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge, which has more varied hiking trails, resident wildlife, and is great for birdwatching.
