You’ve just bought one of the quality new homes in Georgetown TX and you want to get to know the community better. So where should you go to enjoy Georgetown like an insider? Here are just a few places to take in the city’s blend of down-home classic Texas mixed with an artsy new vibe:

Historic Town Square

Georgetown was founded in 1848. Its town square still has an Old West ambience thanks to numerous restored buildings in the Town Square Historic District. Stop in at the Williamson Museum to get the background on the area’s history. The museum also offers tours of the Williamson County Courthouse. Take in a performance at the Palace Theater and enjoy a live show in a beautifully renovated historic venue. If you love art, pop into the Georgetown Art Center located inside the circa 1892 Fire House No. 1.

Downtown Shopping

The town square is lined with locally owned small businesses and shops that you’ll want to support with your patronage. Sincerely Yours 1848 sells men’s and women’s clothing. Handcrafts Unlimited is a nonprofit consignment store run by senior citizens. La Bella Casa offers unique home décor and furniture.

Restaurants

A variety of restaurants fill Georgetown with local and international flavors. Sweet Lemon Inn & Kitchen serves all-natural and locally sourced breakfast and lunch items.    Diners can enjoy their meal indoors or outside on the back patio. The Pit Bar-B-Q offers both dine-in and drive-through service. Monument Café is a 1940’s-style Texas diner famous for its Monument Pie, made with a candied pecan crust.

Wine and Beer         

Georgetown Winery on the town square was the first winery in Georgetown. Grape Creek Winery is also located on town square and features a patio with misters. Both wineries have won awards for their products. Rentsch Brewery is the first craft brewery in Georgetown. You can grab a beer and relax on the outdoor patio or grab a bite from the nearby food trucks.

Recreation

On hot days, locals enjoy taking a dip at Blue Hole, a natural swimming hole and grotto. Visit Inner Space Cavern for an underground tour or cool off at the downtown splash pad.
