Regional Information

Located just 30 miles northeast of Austin. Connected to Interstate 35 by Highway 79, Taylor's highway access has always been an asset. Two new state highways (Toll-130 and Toll-45) just 10 miles from our City makes it easier than ever for companies to move goods and people into and out of Taylor.

The Taylor ISD is a place without limits, full of rich traditions and a proud heritage. With approximately 3,000 students, our ISD is small enough to recognize the needs of each individual student and large enough to address them in creative and effective ways. Taylor is home to three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school.

Taylor is also home to two private schools, St. Paul Lutheran Elementary School and St. Mary's Catholic School. East Williamson County Higher Education Center, a multi-institutional teaching center, brings together partners Temple College, Texas State Technical College, Texas Tech University, Concordia University Texas, and Legacy Early College High School to provides employers and residents with access to higher education and workforce training.

Greater Austin is well known for its colleges and universities. More than 115,000 college students are enrolled in the MSA's eight universities and colleges.The main campus of The University of Texas is 35 miles from Taylor. The University is the 2nd largest in the nation with more than 50,000 students and is consistently ranked among the top 10 in the country for science and engineering degrees awarded. The University plays an important role in the region's flourishing high tech industry.

Quality of Life

Taylor is a community of diverse ethnic heritage and is home to a diverse, entrepreneurial population that embraces family values, hard work, and community involvement. Over the past decade, the influx of new residents aged 25-35 years old has had an invigorating effect on our City. From community investments in recreation and advanced technologies to a wide variety of youth programs, Taylor promotes an active contemporary lifestyle.

Recreation

The City provides public parks, swimming pools, tennis courts, a public library, the historical Moody Museum, and grandeur home sites.

Taylor abounds with eclectic shopping opportunities as well as relaxing spots for dining and sipping. Our historic downtown area boasts antique and novelty shops, Latin dining, and coffee shops, as well as an assortment of service businesses. The historic 100 year-old Howard Theater rounds out the experience. One of our downtown highlights is a monthly 3rd Thursday late-night shopping and gallery experience.

Taylor is in the heart of the “Texas BBQ Trail” and boasts award-winning cooks with decades of national acclaim and exposure. In addition, there are more than 40 restaurants serving a variety of cuisine from Tex-Mex and Italian to home cooking. The Taylor Artist Guild is dedicated to the unbridled pursuit of creative expression. It is a dynamic collective of local artists whose specialties encompass all disciplines. It offers a full annual schedule of exhibitions, retreats, classes, sketch and photo clubs.

The Art Guild is actively working to change the face of downtown. Two new galleries - ART120 and Atelier 95 - have opened their doors to an enthusiastic reception. As an integral part of Taylor's Third Thursday downtown night out, the new galleries have offered an eclectic array of art including themed shows, art classes, and gallery receptions.

If you enjoy fishing, camping, swimming, or boating, you will appreciate the convenient location of Granger Lake, located only eight miles from Taylor.

The community offers opportunities to have fun with family and friends at annual events. Highlighting these events are the Taylor Rodeo, International Barbeque Cook-Off, Downtown Fest, Fourth of July Fireworks, Tex Avery Day and the Parade of Lights and Christmas displays.

The century-old Howard Theatre at 308 N. Main shows first-run movies and hosts special events. Originally located across the street, the owners of the city’s two theaters combined them, dropping the 1925 Rita Theater name. The Rita location became the new venue for the Howard. The theater was modernized in 2001 and split into upper and lower sections providing dual screens.

And no place in Texas would be complete without good food and music. The Old Coupland Inn and Dance Hall offers dinner, music and two-steppin' every weekend. The SPJST Lodge 29, organized in 1899, hosts special events that include free dances twice a week. They also offer a fundraiser hamburger dinner every Friday night.
