Discover Georgetown's unique shopping experience, front-porch-friendly service, and seasonable celebrations. Our unforgettable parks shaded by 200 year-old oak trees, the clear waters of Lake Georgetown, and breathtaking Hill Country sunsets make for the best of year-round recreation.

Step back in time as you explore Downtown Georgetown’s Victorian-era architecture, which is home to dozens of charming boutiques and restaurants. Most of the restored buildings are recognized as historical sites in the State of Texas.

If visitors truly want to experience Georgetown, getting out by the water is recommended. Walking, hiking, cycling and birding along our North San Gabriel River Trail are a way of life here, as are swimming and boating on Lake Georgetown.

Any nature enthusiast would agree that exploring our caverns is also a must, and educational tours are always available.

Georgetown offers visitors several unique shopping areas. On the Historic Downtown Square, browse the antique shops and specialty stores where you will find everything from Texas-themed gift items to fine linens. Whether you are on the hunt for the perfect home accessory, a thoughtful gift, or an original work of art, Georgetown is your treasure trove.

Georgetown is home to fun-filled events, many of them on the downtown square. Each year, we celebrate with events such as the Red Poppy Festival, Fiddlin' Fair, & Artwalk on the Square, amongst others. During the holidays, magic comes to life with the Lighting of the Square, and Christmas Stroll.

Whether you have a passion for golf, antiques, arts, entertainment, handcrafts, shopping, heritage tourism, or cultural experiences, Georgetown is your ideal destination.

Be certain to check out the variety of places to stay in Georgetown, from cozy bed and breakfast accommodations & excellent hotels, to beautiful campgrounds.

Georgetown is the northern most "gateway" to the gently rolling hills of Central Texas. Austin is 26 miles south. Dallas is two hours north. Houston is two hours southeast and San Antonio is one-and-a-half hours south. Access to Georgetown via the Austin- Bergstrom International Airport and the north/south highway artery of Interstate 35 and east/west highway artery of Highway 29 make traveling to and from Georgetown easy.

Discover the history. Discover the charm. Discover the Central Texas treasure that is Georgetown, Texas.
