Change Your Perspective There’s more to Austin than what goes on in its famous city limits. Join The Brownstone for a quick tour of the communities, culture and adventure you can find north of the city.

Why Choose North Austin?

North Austin is one of the most rapidly growing regions in the country, with tremendous economic and population growth throughout Williamson County. Close enough to everything the capital city has to offer yet adept and sophisticated enough to hold their own. These emerging communities offer something for everyone, from young professionals and growing families to empty nesters and retirees. Head north and discover a vibrant community in the heart of Central Texas: a place to work, a place to play – a place to call home.

Cities North • Austin: North Austin is enjoying a resurgence, thanks in part to the tremendous growth in communities north of the main city. • Round Rock: Once a sleepy bedroom community, Round Rock is now a successful city with a growing economy boosted by several major employers. • Georgetown: Georgetown enjoys a classic oldtown feel while still offering access to the excitement and culture of the big city. • Cedar Park: Just northwest of Austin, Cedar Park is home to much of the region’s development, growing more than 10-fold since 1990. • Leander: Resting at the outer edge of the Austin region, it offers a range of homes and communities.

Love the Outdoors? Why Stay Inside? This is the place to be if you love the outdoors. Cedar Park and Round Rock offer dozens of family-friendly parks and playing fields. And Georgetown boasts miles of paved and unpaved hike and bike trails, leading from the historic Square to Lake Georgetown. The lake is a great place for skiing and fishing. Or take a dip in the middle of downtown Georgetown at the Blue Hole, a naturally deep, clear swimming hole on the San Gabriel River.

Exciting Attractions & Events Skip the big city and enjoy plenty of events and attractions throughout the North Austin area. The new 181,640-square-foot Cedar Park Center is home to Texas Stars hockey, concerts and a variety of events. Enjoy a ball game at Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express, the minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers. For something a little more relaxed, enjoy great food, music and shopping on the Georgetown Square at First Fridays or Market Days on the second Saturday of each month.

Shopping Find great deals on national brands at The Round Rock Premium Outlets, or head to traditional shopping centers like La Frontera, Lakeline Mall or 1890 Ranch in Cedar Park. For something a little more unique, try the local boutiques, jewelry stores and antique shops around the Georgetown Square. And coming soon, the Summit at Rivery Park will offer even more shopping in Georgetown’s first mixed-use development.

Dining You can find something for every taste in Central Texas. Be sure to check out Austin-area favorites like Rudy’s BBQ and Chuy’s Tex-Mex, but save room for some great local spots too. For breakfast, head over to the world-famous Round Rock Donuts, home of the 2-pound donut! And for a classic diner atmosphere with fresh, local ingredients, you can’t beat The Monument Café in Georgetown.

Colleges & Universities • University of Texas: UT is one of the nation’s top schools, offering a wide range of full-time, part-time and continuing education programs. • Texas State University: Texas State’s north campus is located between Round Rock and Georgetown, offering a variety of bachelor’s, master’s and certificate programs. • Southwestern University: Founded in 1840, Georgetown is home to this nationally recognized liberal arts college offering a high-quality education and atmosphere. • Austin Community College: The nationally ranked ACC system has three locations in the region, with campuses in North Austin, Round Rock and Cedar Park.

Schools The region is recognized for some of the best school systems in the Austin area. Round Rock, Georgetown and Leander Independent School Districts earn high marks in state and national assessments. Community and parental involvement helps make these hometown school districts even stronger, with programs like Georgetown’s Partner’s In Education (P.I.E.) which helps provide mentoring and tutoring for students and grants for teachers.

Healthcare You’ll enjoy convenient access to quality healthcare facilities throughout the region, including St. David’s Hospital in Georgetown, Seton Medical Center Williamson and Scott & White University Medical Hospital in Round Rock and the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center.

Highways & Routes • I-35: The main North/South thoroughfare, I-35 leads through the heart of just about everything, but beware of rush hour traffic and backups. • Mopac / Loop 1: Mopac loops west of downtown, offering a faster and less congested north/south route than I-35, Mopac takes its unusual name from its parallel cohort the Missouri Pacific railroad. • 183/183-A: Leaving the airport, 183 travels north of Downtown into North Austin. From there, the 183-A toll road provides access to Cedar Park and Leander. 183’s other name is Research Boulevard. • SH-45 Toll Road: Connecting SH-130, I-35, Mopac and 183, this toll road provides a convenient connection from east to west….finally! • SH-130 Toll Road: 130 lies east of Austin, running from south of the city all the way to Georgetown. This key artery provides North Austin residents convenient access to the airport as well as a clear path to San Antonio. If you’re heading far south, you can’t beat this route to bypass traffic. • Loop 360: Loop 360, also known as Capital of Texas Highway, has its share of weekday congestion, but is perfect for Sunday drives exploring the beauty of the area. • Commuter Rail: The Capital Metro Commuter Rail line runs north from the heart of downtown Austin to Leander, providing residents a convenient way into and out of the city.

Discover the unique lifestyle of a contemporary urban village in the heart of historic Georgetown.

The Brownstone is located in The Summit at Rivery Park, offering boutique shopping, dining and high-end business spaces, as well as the area’s only hotel and conference center.
