RE: Pflugerville or Round Rock, or Jacksonville
I've never been to Jacksonville, but I lived in Pflugerville for a while.
One word for you: Suburbia. Miles and miles of tract homes & strip malls on what used to be farmland. It's 20 minutes on the interstate bare minimum to downtown Austin, could be an hour in traffic. There's a nice small downtown area, but it's not much. They are turning many of the roads that lead to Pflugervill/Round Rock into toll roads. Not much in the way of entertainment aside from a couple of decent golf courses, and a Tinseltown movie theater. The Round Rock Express are fun to see if you like baseball, but I'm not much of a fan.
On a positive note, crime is low & schools are pretty good.
I got the heck outta there & moved back to South Austin.
If you want lower taxes, I'd suggest Kyle or Buda. Good schools, lower taxes, and it's a shorter drive to Austin. I just hate Pflugerville.
