A suburb just 14-miles northeast of Austin, Pflugerville, Texas is home to just under 47,000 people. Henry Pfluger Sr. and his family immigrated to the area from Germany in 1849, purchasing several acres of farmland. After the Civil War, the community around the original farmstead grew: first residents built a school, then a church, general store, and a few other businesses. Eventually, Pflugerville became a little town on the outskirts of Austin. It wasn’t incorporated until 1965, but saw major population growth once Austin started expanding in the 1980s.
Today, life in Pflugerville is simple and quaint, allowing residents to live a relaxed, laid-back life removed from the noise of Austin. Yet, with the bustling capital city nearby, it’s easy to enjoy the city life whenever the mood strikes. Pflugerville is the perfect place for families, retirees, and others who are ready to enjoy a simpler, more fulfilling lifestyle.

There’s plenty of enjoyment for the nature lover, as the city boasts more than 30 miles of walking trails and 15 amazing parks. Lake Pflugerville is a 180-acre reservoir with ample adventure for the outdoorsman including opportunities for fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and windsurfing. Aside from nature, Pflugerville offers a skatepark for those who live on the wild side with their boards. The skate park also serves as a BMX park, a tennis court, and a basketball court. Local families enjoy visiting Typhoon Texas, a nearby waterpark replete with waterfalls, slides, pools, and shady cabanas to beat the Texas heat.
