Housing on and off the Square encompasses enough variety to meet just about anyone’s taste. The Old Town area, featuring homes built in the 1800s to present-day, offers everything from apartments and condominiums to Craftsman bungalows and stately Victorians. A little closer to the San Gabriel River are even more residential areas featuring luxury multi-family housing for lease or purchase.
The perks to living downtown are many: exercise and leisure are quite literally within walking distance as the San Gabriel Park hike and bike trail and recreation areas connect directly with downtown. Local favorite, Blue Hole Park is located in downtown and connects to the City’s hike and bike trail that extends from San Gabriel Park to Lake Georgetown. Free bike rentals are available at the Georgetown Visitors Center and the Georgetown Public Library.
Many of the best festivals and events in Georgetown take place on the Square and in San Gabriel Park.
