The city of Hutto is a northern suburb of Austin located east of Round Rock and west of Taylor. Hutto has been growing rapidly in recent years with the development of numerous large new home communities. Residents enjoy the feeling of a small-town feel while still being relatively close to the big city life. In the Old Town you can find historical homes and unique restaurants in shops in the historic district. Along Highway 79, you will find large big box stores and chain restaurants as well as the new Hutto Co-Op District. This mixed-use development is home to City Hall and the library, and will soon be home to a hotel and amphitheater as well as various retail stores and residents. Hutto is still relatively affordable compared to the rest of the Austin real estate market.
