"Between a Rock and a Weird Place" - Pflugerville, Texas Makes Relocation List

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

With its newest marketing slogan, "Pflugerville: Between a Rock and a Weird Place", my current hometown seems poised for even more growth now that it has been named as one of the "Top 100 Places to Live" according to Relocate America.

To briefly explain the saying, Pflugerville is located between Round Rock and Austin, whose city slogan is "Keep Austin Weird".  This refers to efforts to support local small businesses as opposed to large chain stores.

I have lived in Pflugerville for over 14 years now, so I know firsthand how great the town is for raising kids.  It's quiet, safe, friendly, and affordable.  What else could you ask for?

When we first moved here, the census sign (from 1990) said, "Population: 4,444".  The current population is approaching 50,000, making Pflugerville one of the fastest growing cities in Texas.

Speaking of the desirability of our community:

"Pflugerville is just 20 minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and with two new state highways traversing the city, Pflugerville will soon be an essential hub for people making their way in and around Central Texas. Perhaps most importantly, Pflugerville is committed to families. Located minutes from technology giants Dell, Samsung, Motorola and IBM, and from the State offices in downtown Austin, the City attracts a highly educated population in search of quality housing, excellent schools and a safe, healthy environment."

LOL. Every time you blog about Pflugerville, I laugh. OK, so I'm easily amused. But I have twin brothers. I swear I can hear their jokes from 30 years ago ringing in my ears. And that name is just too easy. Doh!

Pflugerville...a funny name.  While in PA this past week, we went through a small town called...Intercourse, PA.  Now, that is funny.

Jason, I remember when Pflugerville and Round Rock were way out there, now it is connected through Georgetown. It is an ideal size for raising a family and I love that city slogan.
