Trends in recent years show growing interest in the Texas suburbs. Towns including New Braunfels (located between San Antonio and Austin), Frisco (in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area), Georgetown (a 45 minute drive north of Austin) and Pearland (near Houston) have leapt into last year’s top ten list of the fastest-growing American cities with a population larger than 50,000. Census figures show that despite the state gaining nearly half a million new citizens in one year, with 1,200 new residents on average daily, suburban counties are seeing the biggest growth.
