Central Texas

“I must say as to what I have seen of Texas it is the garden spot of the world. The best land and the best prospects for health I ever saw, and I do believe it is a fortune to any man to come here. There is a world of country here to settle.” – Davy Crockett, Alamo defender, 1836.

Central Texas is a region in Texas surrounding Austin and roughly bordered by Brady to Kerrville to La Grange to Waco.

Central Texas includes the Austin–Round Rock, Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, Bryan–College Station, and Waco metropolitan areas. The Austin–Round Rock and Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood areas are among the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the state. Some of the largest cities in the region are Austin, College Station, Killeen, Round Rock, and Waco.

The Central Plains region of Texas is mostly rolling grasslands, with cross timbers area populated often heavily with hardwood trees. Farming is common in this area due to the fertile soils, as well as, is cattle, goat and sheep ranching all thriving industries in the Central Texas region. There are many landscapes in Central Texas. Rivers, escarpments, grasslands, hardwood trees are only some of the many beautiful geographic topographies this region has to offer. The Cap Rock escarpment makes up the western border, the Gulf Coastal Plains border the region to the east, the Colorado River forms the southern border, and the northern border between Texas and Oklahoma is formed by the Red River.
