Living In Lakeway
Nestled on the western edge of Travis County, and only half an hour from downtown Austin, Lakeway Texas is a quiet little town in Texas Hill Country. As the name suggests, the town sits at the southern end of Lake Travis, serving as a wonderful access point to the reservoir. What was once a retirement and second home community, Lakeway now attracts young professionals, families, and empty-nesters.
From Sprawling Ranch to Serene Spas
Lakeway Texas serves as a soothing contrast to the quickly growing Austin area. Just over a half century ago, the region transformed from dusty ranch to hilly, beautiful lakefront living where sprawling, luxurious properties are interspersed by immaculate golf resorts. Though the town has grown in population since its ranching days, by no means is it crowded. Lakeway also boasts the Lakeway Resort and Spa, the only one on the lake.
Fairways and First Mates
When not pacing the golf courses or practicing self care at the spa, try your luck sailing or boating on Lake Travis. The charming Lakeway Marina is tucked right downtown and has sailboats, jet skis, and motorboats for rent. And let’s be honest, the lake is the gem of Lakeway; a sinuous, turquoise gem. Here are just some of the highlights of Lake Travis:
Stretches 65 miles along the Colorado River, providing plenty of room for adventure
Covers 30 square miles of surface area, making it the largest of the Central Texas lakes
Is consistently one of the clearest lakes in Texas
Offers first class recreational opportunities including scuba diving, camping, fishing, and zip lining
