Five Ways to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions in Round Rock

The New Year is almost here and if you’re like us, you’ve made a few resolutions! Whether you want to work on your fitness, eat healthier, or try something new, we’ve got Five Ways to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions in Round Rock.

#1: Hit the Trails

Lake at Old Settler's Park

Round Rock is home to over 20 miles of trail systems just waiting for you, your bike and your furry friends. Take a short stroll on the Kensington Greenbelt, follow in the footsteps of cross country athletes at Old Settlers Park, or check out the dog park on the Greater Lake Creek Trail. Better fitness is just a trail away, so lace up, take a deep breath of fresh Texas air, and we’ll see you out there!

#2: Expand Your Culinary Horizons

Maybe your goal is to eat healthier this year, or maybe you just want to try something new! From salads to sushi and everything in between, Round Rock’s burgeoning foodie scene has the meal to suit your cravings. Stop by local favorite Nancy’s Sky Garden for a plate full of healthy veggies and protein, drop in Greenhouse Craft Food for a variety of farm-to-table fare, and get your BBQ fix at the legendary Salt Lick.

#3: Explore Your Creative Side

Dedicate some time this year to get in touch with your creative side! Sign up for a watercolor or photography workshop at ArtSpace in historic Downtown Round Rock, or grab your best friends and a bottle of wine and create a masterpiece at Painting with A Twist. Not quite ready to unleash your inner artist? Take in the works of local artists at the Papi’s Pies Third Thursday Art + Community Party. Whatever artistic path you follow, your right brain will thank you!

#4: Get Lost in A Book or Two

Most of us dream of more time for reading, and this is the year to make that dream a reality! Turn off your phone, load up your book bag, and turn on your literary genius. Bring that novel you’ve been saving for just this occasion and settle into a hot (or cold) latte at Lamppost Coffee, or one of the many local java shops around town. If you’re in need of a new read, take a stroll through Downtown and peruse the stacks at the Round Rock Library.

#5: Spend More Time with Loved Ones

It’s so easy to get caught up with work, errands and everyday life, but this year let’s set aside time for the special people in our lives! Cheer on the Express at Dell Diamond, the award-winning home of the Astros’ Triple-A affiliate baseball team, where you’ll also find concerts, soccer games and more events the whole family can enjoy.

Take in some live outdoor music at Music on Main in Downtown Round Rock, or see a performance by Penfold Theatre Company or at Sam Bass Theater. Round Rock also plays host to a wide variety of exciting and unique events like That Takes the Cake Sugar Art & Cake Show and the US Quidditch World Cup.
