This picturesque streetscape has attracted numerous festivals, movie stars, businesses, and people from all over the world which make Georgetown the vibrant community of today.
Founded in 1848, Georgetown has seen it all – from the original inhabitants of the Tonkawa Native American tribe to a population of almost 60,000! Georgetown started to blossom in the 1980s when they revitalized downtown in order to highlight their Texas-Victorian streetscape. They now have three Nationally Registered Historic Districts that transport you back in time the minute you hit Main Street. Georgetown’s rustic architecture even landed Georgetown on the silver screen. Clear eye, full hearts, can’t lose? Yep, Friday Night Lights (TV) was filmed right here along with Varsity Blues! Georgetown’s main claim-to-fame, however, is that it’s known as the “Red Poppy” Capital of Texas, and has an annual festival in the historic square to celebrate its name! This festival attracts up to 30,000 visitors every April and is an event you do not want to miss!
