Hi! My family and I have been considering a move to the Austin area for a few years now. We've determined we probably can not afford to live close to Austin since we really want land for our three boys, so we were advised to look at Georgetown.

If we were looking for a neighborhood that was close to a good elementary school, what would be advised? Also, are there any community Mom's groups that I could link up with to ask more questions? I'd so much appreciate any information, many thanks!

I remember another important question I had ... one of our complaints about where we live is that there is nothing to really take our kids to do and see. We want to take them to see natural landscapes and go hiking, and we really like to participate in the arts. What do people like to do to pass the time in Georgetown?

Julia -
Georgetown is a wonderful small city - there are several neighborhoods in and around Georgetown. There are several elementary schools located inside neighborhoods - Annie Purl ELementary in the old town section of downtown is an example. Last time I counted - there were at least 9 elementary schools located in and around Georgetown. As far as hiking, seeing the natural beauty of Central Texas - Georgetown has it all. The River Ridge neighborhood borders on the San Gabriel River - truly a wonderful place to hike. Downtown Georgetown is full of art - from the many shops in downtown square to the campus of Southwestern adjacent to the downtown area. Georgetown is truly a great place to live. On the other side of town, you will find modern malls to shop in also. There are so many things in Georgetown to do and see for both adults and kids. Before you dismiss me as thinking I am a native Texan who is bragging abouthis city - I am instead a native South Carolinian who moved to Georgetown in 2000 and lived there until 2008. I have lived in several states and I can honestly say - Georgetown and Texas itself is a place to live and enjoy life. I regret that we were not able to stay. I can't remember all the names of the elementary schools, but any of them are excellent. I suggest you make a plan to drive to Georgetown, spend two to three days in and around Georgetown ... especially on the first Friday of a month so you can attend one of the "First Friday" events in downtown Georgetown. GO to the vistor's center in the downtown area, pick up a map, and enjoy the area. You will be very plaesed with Georgetown. I can only offer one small amount of advice - there is an small airport on the north side of town - there is a neighborhood around it - you might want to be aware that the low flying planes can be annoying if you were to look at houses in that area.
