LAKE TRAVIS AREA- HEAVEN ON EARTH

Everyone knows Austin is just about the most desirable place to live in the galaxy.  But many don't know that a mere twenty miles northwest of downtown Austin is one of the most stunningly beautiful places in the world, the southern shore of Lake Travis.  Those of us fortunate enough to call the Lake Travis area home enjoy all the advantages Austin has to offer plus a casual laid-back Hill Country lifestyle with a real down-home sense of community.

The Lake Travis area includes the City of Lakeway along with her sister communities, the Village of The Hills, Bee Cave, Briarcliff, and Spicewood.   All sit along the banks of Lake Travis.  This 18,930 acre reservoir winds for 65 miles through the scenic beauty of the Texas Hill Country, providing exceptional recreational resources.  This makes the Lake Travis area among the most sought after places to live, work,and play.

In the Lake Travis area there is something for everybody.  There are endless opportunities  to enjoy the great outdoors --- boating, swimming, golf, tennis, jogging, hiking, cycling, flying, etc.  We are especially proud of our excellent schools. Lake Travis ISD, is ranked  as one of the very best in Texas, by the Texas Education Agency.   We also boast first-rate shopping, superb restaurants, a great variety of club offerings including golf, tennis, fitness, bridge, gardening, etc, as well as many social events from theatre, concerts,and dances to antique car shows and chili cook-offs, All these and more combine to make the Lake Travis area close to perfection on earth for those of us lucky enough to live here.

By the way, new residents and visitors are always more than welcome.
