About Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center
Rockwall is the smallest county in Texas. The City of Rockwall was named for the rock formation underground after the town founders could not agree on naming the town after one of them. Rockwall and the communities that surround it are among the fastest-growing populations in the state. CNN’s Money.com voted Rockwall as the best U.S. city for job growth in 2011. That same year, Rockwall’s retail... market and shopping was voted best in growth across Texas by Texas Retail Survey. Despite the many awards and accolades in the years following, Rockwall still maintains its family-friendly, small-town atmosphere. This is what makes it the perfect place to grow a business, raise a family and enjoy an unrivaled quality of life.
The Coast of Rockwall is located on the shoreline of the pristine Lake Ray Hubbard, a 22,000-acre recreational lake. Lake Ray Hubbard is a center for all water activities and the perfect place for fishing and relaxing. With 111 miles of rolling shoreline and more than 10 miles of wilderness trails, Rockwall is an excellent hiking/biking destination.
