Looking for apartments in Round Rock, TX?
Named by CQ Press as the second safest city in Texas (population of 100,000) Round Rock is an entity which has recently become a rapidly expanding force. Residents are attracted to the area in large part because of its location, development, and accolades. Interstate 35 is the major highway that runs through Round Rock and provides the quickest path to Austin, an approximately 30 minute drive south.
Those who are lucky enough to avoid braving the Austin traffic can look for employment at some of the major local companies. Dell Computers has its international headquarters here, and an Ikea and Premium Outlet center have also recently opened up shop.
In recent years, Round Rock has been on a plethora of top ten lists put out by magazines such as Family Circle and Money magazine.

The Dell Diamond, a $25 million dollar facility, is home to the Round Rock Express and was ranked as the number one minor league park by Minor League News.
