“Go Round Rock” (Round Rock slogan)

The city of Round Rock, Texas, had been called the “Sports Capital of Texas” since after the 2000 opening of the Dell Diamond stadium. The city then wanted to emphasize non-sports attractions as well, and in April 2019, Round Rock announced its new slogan—“Go Round Rock.” The slogan resembles a sports cheer, but also reflects on Round Rock as a destination to go to.
