The Texas city of Round Rock has an estimated population of 105,000 inhabitants. The city sits within two different counties, Travis County and Williamson County and is included within the Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos metropolitan area.

Round Rock City was named the seventh-best small American city to live in by Money Magazine during the month of August 2008. It was the just Texas city to meet the criteria. It was also listed as the second-fastest growing city within the United States by CNN with an 8.2% growth from the year 2008 to 2009. This fast growth has caused extreme overcrowding within the city.

The fault line of the Balcones Escarpment divides the city of Round Rock into two distinct sections. East of the IH-35, the land is flat, with extremely fertile, black soil known as the Blackland Prairie. To the west the terrain rises and is covered with several hills with higher elevations and little topsoil. The city of Round Rock shares a common border together with the city of Austin at SH 45, which could be found about twenty miles south of downtown.

The city was first established in the year 1851 alongside the Brushy Creek banks. The city was named after a large, round rock which was found within the center of the creek. This rock showed a low-water crossing area which was used by wagons and cattle. The well-known Chisholm Trail, which was used by Jesse Chisholm as a cattle trail, comprised Bush Creek. Downtown is important in history as the scene of the final gunfight which resulted in the arrest of the famous train rubber, Sam Bass.

The wealth of the county was mainly produced by the cotton fields, throughout the first half of the 20th century. The soils of the "blackland prairie" were abundant and fertile allowing cotton to be the biggest economic driver at the time. The main cotton center was situated in the nearby city of Taylor, that lies just to the east. The crop was delivered there and shipped, ginned and compressed. Austin City likewise developed a cotton center shortly after the railroad arrived during the year 1870. East of the Interstate 35, the main sources of income came from cotton, row-crops, truck farming and grapes. Goats, cattle and sheep were raised to the west of the Balcones divide. Though agriculture and cattle raising still play a part within the economy of Round Rock City, it is to a much lesser extent then it was twenty five years ago and has been confined to the east of the city of Round Rock.

Now, the economy is focused on clean energy industries, advanced manufacturing, life sciences, and computer/software development. There are over 20 key businesses within Round Rock City, with the most notable being Sears Customer Care, Toppan Photomasks, Round Rock Premium Outlets, Ikea, Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corp, KoMiCo Technology Inc., Cintas, Dresser, Hospira, and TECO-Westinghouse, Dell and Cerilliant Corporation. Although the city has become a main center for economic growth, it has maintained its high quality of life.
