Nationally, Round Rock ranks No. 16 on the list of 100 cities.
Niche used several data sets to compile the list, with the percentage of residents with a bachelor’s degree or higher weighted the heaviest. Other data sets included cost of living, diversity, ease of commuting, family friendly amenities and outdoor activities.

Round Rock has 169 user reviews on Niche.com, with an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
A highlighted current resident review on Niche reads:
“If I could describe my experience with Round Rock in one word, it would be home. After being born in raised in Austin for my toddler years, me and my family moved to Round Rock and we've loved it ever since. I've always seen it as a small cute community in disguise, because it truly is growing in tremendous way. Now residing in college a couple hours away, I can definitely say the homesickness sets in deeply when I reflect on all of my favorite places to eat and shop that are there or even 15 minutes down the road.”
