About the Region


Nestled deep in the heart of Texas and covering an area larger than Massachusetts, the Texas Hill Country Region is home to some of the most beautiful and untamed geography the Lone Star State has to offer. The region boasts more than 8,100 square miles of rolling hills, live oak trees, fresh springs and scenic vistas that encompass friendly communities and large urban areas alike.

The Texas Hill Country Region is so well known for its natural beauty that many are surprised to learn that the area is also an ideal place to do business. In fact, the Texas Hill Country is gaining recognition on a national, even global scale as leading driver in economic development.

Businesses find everything they need to succeed in the Hill Country, including an established infrastructure along one of the nation’s most significant transportation arteries. The area’s relatively low cost of doing business and its large population base are attractive to businesses of all shapes and sizes and close proximity to nationally ranked universities, colleges and training programs contribute to a workforce that is both highly skilled and readily available. Not to mention the abundance of available real estate and commercial properties and facilities that make the Texas Hill Country a prime location for business. Best of all, the region maintains its rich, diverse history and small town charm even as it transforms into a driving force behind the Texas and national economy.
