Demand for homes for rent near Austin, Texas, has been surging over the past decade, as more people become interested in relocating to this youthful, vibrant city. The city has become a huge draw for young professionals looking for a lively atmosphere as well as families seeking safe neighborhoods and job security, but Austin's suburbs have also become areas of heavy interest. While some have existed primarily as bedroom communities for commuters into the city, rentals in Round Rock, Texas, are now an integral part of the suburb's local economy, and job opportunities there continue to be abundant.
Because the town is the global headquarters of Dell and several other large companies, newcomers have opted to rent houses in Round Rock and grab a small slice of the rapidly developing area. As a result, the town was recently named America's seventh best small city, and CNN has reported it as the country's second-fastest growing city, showing the heightened value of renting in Round Rock.
The town has also become a point of historical interest: It appears that people found it a lovely place to settle as early as 9,200 B.C. From evidence found at the nearby Gault Site, scientists have determined that humans likely lived there during the late Pleistocene Age, and even found the skeleton of "The Leanderthal Lady," near Leander, Texas.
Today, residents of Round Rock rentals are much more active and satisfied. The town's recreational highlights include the Pacific Coast League's minor league baseball team, Round Rock Express, a free public skate park on Gattis School Road, the Rockin' River Family Aquatic Center, and facilities for cricket, baseball, soccer, and Frisbee golf.
