There are small towns, and then there are really small towns. New Sweden, Texas is located in Travis County. It's located about 30 minutes outside of Austin. With a population of 60, it's actually not even considered a town; instead, it's a census-designated place. Small towns aren't a bad thing, though! Its give you the chance to truly experience southern hospitality and small-town charm.
Unfortunately, small towns aren't always the most dog-friendly towns. That's the case with New Sweden, as well. There are no dog parks in town, and there are zero dog-friendly restaurants. There isn't a vet in town, either. Don't let that run you off just yet, though. Because of New Sweden's proximity to Austin and other larger towns, like Pflugerville, you won't have to venture too far to have a good time with your pup! Austin is overflowing with dog-friendly restaurants and bark parks. Pflugerville, which is only 11 miles away, has a veterinarian clinic you can take your dog to if they are sick, are injured, or just need to get their annual vaccinations.
New Sweden is a Texas town that's pawsitively overflowing with small-town charm. If you're looking for somewhere small but enjoy the amenities of having a larger city nearby, look no further!
