When it comes to finding the perfect place to call home, there are a number of items you’ll have to check off of your list before you land on the right town and the perfect new home community for you and your loved ones. At Trophy Signature Homes, we’re always one step ahead. Before we begin building our new home communities, we carefully look into each city and town and consider the entertainment options, career opportunities, educational environment and so much more to ensure that we are building our exceptional modern homes in highly sought-after areas. As soon as we came to the decision to expand our work to the Greater Austin area, we knew that the city of Elgin would be the perfect place to start. Read on to see why Elgin offers the ideal place for homeowners to live and why our team is especially excited for all potential homeowners to experience our upcoming Trinity Ranch community.
A city of endless possibilities
A small town with a rich history and plenty of charm, Elgin, Texas has an abundance of activities that everyone is sure to enjoy. For an effortlessly fun weekend, it’s always a great idea to take a stroll down Main Street and check out the unique shops and restaurants that line the sidewalks, and you won’t want to miss out on the stunning murals and public art installations that are all around the area. Every Saturday, the city also holds the Elgin Farmers’ Market, where residents are able to purchase local produce, baked goods and handmade crafts and support their community while doing so.
Ideal for the outdoor enthusiast as well, Elgin also allows residents to easily experience the natural beauty that the area possesses. Bastrop State Park is one spot in particular that offers a seemingly endless array of activities to take part in. Located just outside of Elgin with 7 miles of hiking trails that vary in difficulty and terrain, the spot is ideal for hikers of all levels. Lake Bastrop is also a popular spot for fishing, and for those hoping to make an entire weekend trip out of it, the park has several campsites for tent and RV camping as well.
The Colorado River also runs through Elgin and is a great spot to spend a summer day kayaking or canoeing along the pristine waters. For those who are looking for something a little more extreme every now and then, McKinney Roughs Nature Park is a 1,100 acre park located just outside of Elgin and has over 18 miles of mountain biking trails that range in difficulty from beginner to advanced—ensuring that everyone will be able to enjoy their time on the trails.
Expand your educational and professional life
When finding the ideal city to move to, it’s always important to look at the educational and professional opportunities that are available to residents, and in this regard, Elgin has it covered. The city is home to the Elgin campus of Austin Community College, which offers a variety of courses, certifications and associate degrees in areas such as business, health sciences, liberal arts and technology. Elgin is also a city ideal for entrepreneurs—offering a welcoming atmosphere and providing individuals plenty of networking opportunities, business resources and economic development services within the Elgin Chamber of Commerce.
With Elgin being just a short drive away from the city of Austin, residents will also have the opportunity to easily commute to educational opportunities that the state capitol provides.
