Retail Roundup: Sun City Area Shopping, Dining and Entertainment

Situated in the historic town of Georgetown, just outside Austin, Sun City residents enjoy an irresistible selection of restaurants, abundant entertainment and savvy shopping, all within easy reach.

From homemade wienerschnitzel, savory bratwurst and sausages with sauerkraut at Walburg German Restaurant to the succulent Mediterranean cuisine at the Plaka Greek Cafe, and the authentic Jalisco- style Mexican food at Mariachis de Jalisco, there are plenty of convenient choices for sumptuous dishes.

Monument Café (a local favorite) serves the freshest meats, fruits and vegetables with superior service guaranteed. Patrons relish the traditional roadside diner café food, such as mouthwatering burgers, freshly cut fries and hand-battered onion rings. Guests can also choose the healthier grilled chicken breast or vegetable plate. Desserts include Monument chocolate pie, milkshakes, or an old-fashioned root beer float Yaghi’s Pizzeria, Catfish Parlour and BB’s Home Cooking are a few other exceptional restaurants in the nearby area frequented by folks who live in Sun City.

Market Day on the Square and the Joy of Shopping

From March through November on the second Saturday of the month, shoppers enjoy heading into Georgetown for Market Day on the Square, where clothing, jewelry, antiques, and all sorts of arts and crafts are displayed. On Thursdays, the Farmer’s Market provides fresh local produce as well as eggs, nuts, cheese and pasture-raised beef.

Before visiting the farmer’s market, residents can shop at the Wolf Ranch Town Center, where clothes and accessories, home décor, consumer electronics and computers are readily available. In addition, downtown Georgetown offers an eclectic mix of shops and boutiques featuring limited edition clothing and home wares. Picking up groceries and other daily supplies is as easy as a quick stop in the HEB grocery or the nearby Walmart Supercenter on the way home.

Art Galleries, Live Theater, Blockbuster Movies and More

More than just a great place to shop and eat, Sun City residents can enjoy a delightful afternoon and evening entertainment at numerous art galleries, the Palace Theatre (a home to year-round, live theater productions), and the 12-screen City Lights movie theatre.

And for folks who prefer to stay close to home, there’s always plenty to do. In pursuit of a healthy physical and intellectual lifestyle, Sun City residents take full advantage of the nearby college campus-like Village Center, which includes a fitness center, outdoor sport courts, and an arts-and-crafts center and ballroom.
