Garbage Town Near Austin

Don't even bother wasting your time here, the economy has tremendously decreased here, and the crimes have rose from the dead, literally, no joke... Umm, I would suggest going towards West Austin area, where the air is clean, sunshine is nice and no CRACKHEADS or SHOOTINGS nearby...

Moved here from Northern Ca. 2 years ago. We love the area and all that is around us. The City is really growing and adding new things weekly. If you can't find what you want in this City you are so close to many other cities. Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown are all with 20 minutes by freeways. This is the best move My wife and I have made and so glad to be retired in Texas.

At Home In Pflugerville, TX

I have lived in Pflugerville Texas, all of my 41 years. It is different than other suburban areas. This is because we were founded around the same time as the cities. This means that we did not begin as a result of sprawl. Towns like ours in the area have their own personalities and independence because of this. It is kind of unique when compared to other areas around big cities in Texas. Of course, this is the hill country in Texas. This means that football, burgers and barbecues are everything. Much of daily activity is done outdoors. This means that if you are new to the area, it may be a change. It also means that driving is the norm. We are surrounded by other various towns like Round Rock. This means that we always travel back and forth to areas like this.

Guests get used to the driving, but I notice that people from elsewhere are alarmed by the storms here. These storms get huge and are loud, but we learn to adjust accordingly. The roads are eerily empty when weather threatens. In this area, we also stay abreast of the news. This means having it programmed as at least one radio station in the car, mobile alerts and televisions in most every place that people go publicly. The weather is always changing, and this is the most effective defense against it. Pflugerville has managed to stray true to the German, Polish heritage in this area. There are many festivals and restaurants that serve local fare. Kolache restaurants are common like donut shops. These are yeast risen pastries that can have a decadent sweet fruit filling or something savory like German sausage. On weekends in the fall, it is all football all the time, but its great football.
