The Perfect Summer Getaway: Lake Travis

By Fabi R. Gomes | June 3rd, 2019

With an ever-changing skyline and an exponentially increasing population, Austin, the fastest growing city in the country, is also home to some of the most stunning wonderlands in the Lone Star State.

Lake Travis, one of the largest man-made lakes in Texas, is a 63.5 mile branch of the Colorado River located approximately 30 minutes from central Austin. The lake is an aquatic playground with activities such as boating, water sports, yacht rock, and outdoor living. Below, find the most exotic and renowned adventures to make your Lake Travis getaway one for the books.
