Out and About in Georgetown, TX

By June 5, 2018No Comments
We are thrilled to host this year’s Annual Conference in Georgetown, June 11-13. Before and after the conference, make sure to appreciate the culture, history and natural beauty this historic town has to offer! Boasting the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,” this city is one of few cities running on 100% renewable energy – it’s the perfect representation of keeping Texas beautiful. 

We’ve assembled some of the great areas and activities the city has to offer to help make your conference experience a memorable one. ​Check it out below. 

Lake Georgetown

Keep Texas waterways clean! Enjoy the incredible Texas landscapes we work so hard to protect. If you’d like to enjoy 1,297 acre lake, paddle boards and kayaks are available from the Georgetown Paddle Company. To make a reservation, visit their website here

Wildfire Restaurant

Hungry? Grab a bite to eat at one of Georgetown’s finest establishments. A classic steakhouse and bar located downtown. Featuring delicious, wood-smoked meats and seafood, Wildfire has been described as “a reason to move to Georgetown.” Drop in for lunch, dinner, or even just cocktails. For more information, visit their website. 

Berry Springs Park and Preserve

A few miles north of town lies Berry Springs, a beautiful park complete with gardens, fishing, and a hiking trail. Voted as Georgetown’s “Best Kept Secret” back in 2010, Berry Springs is the perfect spot to stop in and unwind. Make sure to bring your fishing rods!

Georgetown Art Center

Managed by local nonprofit Georgetown Artworks and free to the public, the new Georgetown Art Center is located downtown in the Historic Firehouse building, which has stood since 1892. Inside, you can enjoy works from a different nationally renowned artist every month, as well as a wide range of works from local artists and craftsmen. Visit their website to learn more.

Williamson Museum

Immerse yourself in the rich history of Georgetown and Williamson County. Located in Georgetown Square and entirely free to the public, make sure to stop in! With an incredible amount of history packed into a small space, you can stay for 15 minutes or 5 hours. Check out their website and plan a visit.

Blue Hole

Not to be confused with the Blue Hole of Wimberly, Georgetown’s own swimming spot has plenty to offer. Just north of downtown and along the San Gabriel river, Blue Hole is a great local hangout for swimming, wading or just lying in the shade. For more information, visit the Parks Department website.

Walking Trails

The Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department has almost 9 miles of trails running along the San Gabriel Rivers and through the various parks in the city. Most trails are lighted and are a great way to explore the full breadth of the city. Check out some of Georgetown’s many hiking trails on the Parks Department website. 

Inner Space Cavern

One of the best-preserved caves in Texas, Inner Space Cavern can be found just south of Georgetown off of IH-35. Inner Space Cavern was discovered by the Texas Highway Department in 1963 after being hidden for over 10,000 years. Inside, you can expect to be treated to sights such as incredible limestone formations, as well as prehistoric remains. For more information, visit Inner Space Cavern’s website
