Good Ole Georgetown……

We’ve been in Georgetown for about four and half years now.  Weintend for this to be our last stand and I think we’ve made a wise choice.  Our downsize home is perfectly adequate except it’s hard to have both the kids and their families here at the same time.  Sure wish we had a bunk house.

G’town’s square was voted the most beautiful in Texas last year.  For the most part there are active successful business all around the courthouse and it is constantly busy.  There are several eateries on the square or just off on the side streets.  There are a couple of wine tasting businesses too and they seem to stay busy.

Georgetown has hosted a state-wide competition for the past two years for all forms of art.  There are several societies, like a county Watercolor group, an Austin group and a Central Texas group.  The Texas Sculpture Society Shows here annually too.

At the G’town Art Center, classes is various skills are given in watercolors, acrylics and other disciplines.  These are in addition to people that offer classes.

In addition to these activities, the City has a very large, riverside, park with multiple sports venues for baseball, softball, soccer and literally miles of walking biking trailes.  There is a very large Georgetown Recreation Center, which has indoor walking track, indoor pool, two courts for basketball and volley ball and a fully equipment exercise and workout facility.  There is a nominal fee which is very affordable.

Best of all, all of these facilities are used constantly.  I’ve never seen a library as busy as this one.  Something is going on all the time there.  A great place!
