Round Rock was a small Texas
town just north of Austin
. It is now a large town
, or at least larger, thinks entirely to the Dell Computer Company
. Dell headquarters are not in Austin!
I've seen it with my own eyes, right inside Round Rock city limits
What's with the name?
Unsurprisingly, Round Rock is named after a rock
. The rock is still there, you can look at it anytime you like. Back in the day when cattle
were being herded through the area, they need to cross the little creek
running through the area, and smack dab in the middle
of the shallow point was, you guessed it, a round rock.
So, what's there?
Not much, I'm afraid.
What's it like?
It's all right. Mostly Republican
, fairly strict police
force, lots of shopping centers
have been built recently. Traffic is worse each year due to the Dell-induced increase in population
. Ironically, Michael Dell
put his headquarters here because the traffic in Austin was too bad. Way to problem solve, Mike. Drop by for a visit anytime!
All in all, it's a good town, sort of a Bizarro
Austin political-wise, but it's got good enough people
