Just 15 miles north of the state capitol in Austin, Round Rock is one of the nation’s fastest-growing and economically vibrant cities.
Even though we're The Sports Capital of Texas, there's still plenty of entertainment in town that doesn't involve a ball, a stadium or a scoreboard. Check out these attractions when you're off the field.
From business meetings to basketball tournaments, and everything in between, Round Rock has you covered. Our flexible facilities and high-end amenities will make your next event a sure success.
Relax at one of the many hotels in Round Rock. Whether you're looking for business facilities, comfortable amenities or just a firm bed to rest after the big game, there is an option for you.
You brought your cleats. You brought your jersey. Did you bring your appetite? Enjoy burgers, sandwiches, barbeque, steaks, pasta, seafood and more at one of our restaurants.
The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
