The Daytripper digs into Round Rock

The Daytripper, the popular Texas-based PBS travelogue hosted by Chet Garner, premiered its sixth season in May 2015 with an episode on Round Rock.

The episode savors the fun things to do, see — and eat — in our town. From Round Rock Donuts to the Round Rock Express — with a side trip (ambush?) to Hairy Man Road — the Daytripper gang explores the best of Round Rock in its inimitable, off-beat style. In other words, Chet and Co. ride stick horses and use squirt guns to re-enact the famous Sam Bass Shootout.



Want better roads? How about better parks? All you have to do is Shop the Rock. Seriously, head over to the outlets and buy those shoes, or venture downtown for lunch. It doesn’t matter if you are shopping, dining or getting a haircut your dollars are helping to pay it forward and build our community. What makes this possible? Sales tax. Though it may be the least sexy tax, it is the hardest working one. So next time you see a shirt you love, buy it. Your city will thank you.
