​​​AUSTIN AREA -  Texas isn’t just geographically the largest state in the contiguous United States. It’s also home to a number of the fastest growing cities in the country.​​​

While the Austin region cracked 2 million residents last year, Georgetown was the fastest-growing city in the nation, the U.S. Census Bureau reports. 

That’s more tha​​n any other city with a population of at least 50,000 as of the beginning of that period.​

New Braunfels and Pflugerville weren't far behind in the countrywide ranking.

Georgetown grew by 7.8 percent from mid-2014 through mid-2015, adding 4,611 residents and raising its population from 59,105 to 63,716.

San Marcos, which had the fastest growth in the U.S. for the past three years, slipped down the ranking this time. It grew by 2.4 percent from 2014-2015, adding 1,453 residents to increase its population to 60,684.

Round Rock, north of Austin in Williamson County, grew by 2.8 percent, adding 3,213 residents to grow to 115,997 residents between 2014 and 2015.

A few miles south of Austin along I-35, New Braunfels was the second-fastest growing U.S. city. It grew by 6.6 percent between 2014-2015 to a population of 70,543.​
