If you've spent any time around Round Rock, you've probably heard of Round Rock Market Days. This longstanding community event has become a beloved tradition. Our real estate agents have visited it many times and highly recommend it to anyone in the area. Eager to check it out yourself? Here are all the details you'll need to slot a visit into your busy schedule.
Round Rock Market Days is a monthly community market event that brings together local vendors and residents for a day of shopping, food, and fun. It takes place on the first Saturday of every month at 221 East Main Street in Round Rock's downtown core, right across from the library and just around the corner from many of our Round Rock homes for sale. The nearby Prete Plaza is often used as a stage by musicians as part of the event.
The market is open from 9 AM to 4 PM and is free to enter. Visitors are welcome to stay as long as they like, regardless of whether they make a purchase, but we're guessing you'll find it hard to resist picking up a few new treasures.
Food, Music, and Fundraising
One of the market's main attractions is its live musical performances. Many local musicians enjoy taking to the stage to share their talents with their community, but ordinary Round Rock residents are sometimes invited to take the mic too. Their upbeat tunes are sure to keep you tapping your toes all afternoon.
If you get hungry during your visit, consider stopping by some of the on-site food vendors for some lunch. These tents and trucks cover a wide variety of different cuisines and offer some of the best food in the Round Rock area.
Finally, Round Rock Market Days also frequently hosts fundraisers and donation drives for important local causes. From raising money to pay for knee surgery for a local senior in need to collecting food donations for the Williamson County Children's Advocacy Center, the market's generous attendees have done a lot of good so far in 2022.
Vendors and Crafts
Want to follow up your delicious lunch with a day of shopping? It's time to explore the market's sprawling array of vendor tents and stands. Whether you're looking for a gift for a loved one or a special treat for yourself, it's the perfect place to pick up something unique that you would never find on mass-market store shelves.
Clothing, candles, luxury soaps, and other quality items from local companies like Triple Charm Co. and Ford & Fossil. Many local artists also sell paintings, prints, postcards, and other stunning works. Don't forget all the sweet treats, bread, and jams available from Round Rock's bakeries, confectioners, and other culinary businesses!
Many local businesses that offer classes and other services also turn up at the market to bring live demonstrations and exclusive discounts to Round Rock residents. Club Pilates Round Rock and 7 Star Martial Arts are just some of the many companies that have made an impressive showing at this community event. Be sure to check back every month to see what else might be in store.
Keep the Fun Going All Year Long
Round Rock Market Days happens every month – just think of all the shopping you could do if you lived in the area! With our help, you can make this city your home. Contact us today to book a viewing of any of our Round Rock homes.
There's a lot to explore in Georgetown, TX, a small city about 25 minutes north of Austin. Georgetown offers sweeping Texas Hill Country scenery, picturesque lagoons along the San Gabriel River, and a downtown district that has been called the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas."
But Georgetown's most enticing landscape may be deep underground. Join us as we explore the unique world of Inner Space Cavern, one of Texas' largest cave systems, located just minutes from these Georgetown homes for sale.
A Hidden World
Like many cave systems, the undergrown labyrinth now known as Inner Space Cavern was discovered by accident. It was actually the Texas Highway Department that stumbled upon the previously-unknown cave system in 1963 while constructing an I-35 overpass.
During the process of regulation core testing, the construction crew inadvertently drilled into the cave eight times. Unable to find any other access to what they knew they had found, they drilled a 2-foot wide hole down 33.5 feet through the limestone bedrock, creating the first usable passage into the caves.
Exploring 'Inner Space'
Through that original borehole, dubbed the 'Discovery Hole,' scientists began exploring this brand-new cave system. A larger hole was subsequently created, but to this day, no natural entrance to Inner Space Cavern has ever been found.
We now know that all-natural entryways to Inner Space Cavern have been closed for about 14,000 years. But we are far from the only ones to have ever seen the caves, as Ice Age fossils of saber-toothed tiger, wooly mammoth, and giant sloth found within attest to.
At present, several miles of passageways have been explored, some of which are now open to the public. But the majority of Inner Space Cavern's unknown depths remain unexplored. Still, the small portion that we've been able to access has given us some truly amazing discoveries.
See for Yourself
Roughly 1.2 miles of Inner Space Cavern is open to the public and has been since 1966. Portions that are publicly accessible include winding passages and large, open 'rooms' adorned with striking cave formations. Drapery columns and a large room known as the Ice Cream Parlor are highlights of the cave.
A variety of tours are available. These range from simple walking tours to more advanced wild cave spelunking tours. Check out the official Inner Space Cavern website to learn more about the various options available to the public.
The basic cave tour is known as the Adventure Tour. It lasts about an hour and includes parts of the cave that are flat, fully illuminated, and open enough that one can comfortably walk upright. The slightly longer Hidden Passages Tour is a bit more physically demanding, taking visitors through newly-opened passages that are at times narrower and less developed. Wear closed-toe shoes and expect some uneven ground.
The most challenging and rewarding tour is the Wild Cave Tour. Lasting up to 4 hours, this tour involves hiking, climbing, crawling, and squeezing through tight spots but rewards visitors with an opportunity to experience parts of Inner Space Cavern that few ever see.
