Georgetown is a city in and the county seat of Williamson County, Texas, United States, with a population of 47,400 at the 2010 census and a population of 63,716 at the 2016 Census estimate. It is 30 miles from Austin. Southwestern University, the oldest university in Texas, founded in 1840, is located in Georgetown about one-half mile from the historic square. Sun City Texas is a large retirement-oriented and age-restricted development that constitutes more than one-third of Georgetown's population. Georgetown has a notable range of Victorian commercial and residential architecture. In 1976, a local historic ordinance was passed to recognize and protect the significance of the historic central business district, and in 1977, the Williamson County Courthouse Historical District, containing some 46 contributing structures, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Georgetown is also known as the "Red Poppy" Capital of Texas for the red poppy (Papaver rhoeas) wildflowers planted throughout the city. Georgetown's Red Poppy Festival, which attracts up to 30,000 visitors annually, is held in April each year on the historic square.

Life in Sun City is expansive! There are seemingly endless fun-filled and rewarding opportunities. Here we can slow down and walk to the beat of our drummer! From strolling the winding paved pathways to the fully equipped athletic centers the pace is entirely up to you. We can pray at your choice of worship centers or just hang out with like-minded groups. For the more adventuresome we can look into wood crafts, aquatic-themed events or even learn to play a better round of golf. The landscape is lush and meticulously well cared for. Let's pick a date and I'll meet you there!
