A beautiful City nestled between the clear waters of the North and South San Gabriel Rivers, Georgetown is experiencing tremendous growth in both residential and commercial sectors.   In fact, the US Census Bureau ranks Georgetown in the top five fastest-growing cities in the U.S. (with a population over 50,000) for the past several years. The 2017 population estimate for Georgetown was 60,282 in the city limits and 84,902 in the city limits + ETJ (Extra-territorial Jurisdiction). The city and county are well prepared for this growth and continue to provide services and implement programs to insure citizens continue to enjoy an exceptional quality of life.

The people of Georgetown are friendly and the culture is rich with diversity. Residents and visitors can shop at the unique retail outlets and restaurants on the historic downtown square or the outdoor malls along IH 35.  A Main Street designated city, Georgetown cherishes its revitalized Courthouse and surrounding Victorian-era storefronts on “the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas”.   Georgetown also offers an extensive parks and recreation system and variety of family-oriented festivals enjoyed by everyone from the students at Southwestern University to the retirees at Sun City Texas. Georgetown, Williamson County, and the entire Austin Metro Area consistently rank at the top of lifestyle, economic, and business awards and recognition.
