About Hutto, TX
Hutto is a small city in Texas that is experiencing tremendous growth. Situated in Williamson County, the city is a part of the Austin-Round Rock metropolitan area and is home to a friendly and vibrant community of people. Over the past decade, it has transformed from a small, rural town to one of the fastest-growing suburbs in Austin.
One of the key reasons for Hutto’s substantial growth has been the availability of high-quality public schools and affordable housing, coupled with the opening of the Texas State Highway 130 - also commonly referred to as the Pickle Parkway - on the Central Texas Turnpike System (CTTS), which connects Austin to San Antonio.
Moderate taxes, low crime rates, and convenient access to the Austin area have resulted in Hutto being regarded by Southern Business & Development Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Places in Major Markets to Locate Your Business”.
