About Pflugerville, TX
Situated in Travis County, just north of the Texas capital, Pflugerville is a fast-growing, vibrant city with a mix of intriguing cultures. This suburban boomtown is a part of the Greater Austin area and dishes up Texas hospitality with a little German twist. However, most visitors find the city truly Texan in essence. As a matter of fact, it was a major location for “Friday Night Lights”, a popular TV series that focused on high school football - a Texas passion!
Ranked the 20th best small city to live in the US by Money Magazine and the 25th safest city in Texas by SafeWise, Pflugerville allows visitors to take in the sights of Austin, the capital city, at a short driving distance, but the wide range of attractions offered here also gives you plenty of reasons to stay put and enjoy your time.
One of the most popular attractions in the area is one of the latest: Lake Pflugerville. In 2005, the Colorado River was dammed in order to create the recreational area and reservoir, which has now been opened for windsurfing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. Moreover, Lake Pflugerville also offers a 3-mile trail, perfect for walking, running, jogging as well as a boat launch for fishing. If you visit the city on the 4th of July, don’t miss out on the Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival as it offers concerts, family activities, food, and, of course, fireworks.
The sprawling Austin Park is ideal for indoor and outdoor fun. The attraction has go-karts, arcade games, miniature golf, climbing walls, bumper boats, and laser tags, all of which you can enjoy by purchasing an all-day pass. This pass would also give you access to an all-you-can-eat buffet, which features a wide range of local, delectable delicacies to delight your taste buds. For visitors who wish to experience a few pastimes, however, limited passes are available so pre-purchasing is strongly encouraged.
The Blackhawk Gold Course is another famous attraction in Pflugerville. Designed to accommodate both expert and novice golfers, this links-style golf course measures over 7,000 yards and features a terrain of gentle lakes, trees, and hills. After you have played 18 holes, you can unwind with great food and drinks at the Hawk Grill, which is located in close proximity to the golf course.
Pflugerville has family-style restaurants and chain hotels at almost every turn. However, if you are looking for something different to do, The Water Tank is a great place for quenching your thirst. The nightclub offers signature Texas cooking as well as live entertainment from local musicians. The building features a hard to miss blue-gray water tank on the top
Education in the city is provided by the Pflugerville Independent School District. Encompassing 3 high schools, 19 elementary schools, 6 middle schools, and 2 alternative campuses, PISD enrolls over 23,500 students. Additionally, since three miles of the Texas State Highway 130 runs through the city, there has been a rise in major commercial development. The Stone Hill Town Centre is a prime example, which includes an array of restaurants, retail outlets, and a healthcare emergency care facility.
