It’s officially summer time in Austin! The kids are out of school and the heat is getting hotter. And that only means one thing for Austinites, its lake time! Lakes are a big part of life in Austin and the surrounding Texas Hill Country. Lake Travis is one of the best lakes and it is so nice to have it so near, and for some, its right in their backyard.
We have been lucky enough to get some heavy rain lately so the water level is starting to look better. As of today June 18, 2014 the water level is at 630.34 for Lake Travis, lower than the monthly average, but much higher than what it has been for a really long time. So even though the water level could be higher, it’s still time to get those boats and water activities started.
Have a day filled with family fun! Lake Travis has so much to offer than no one in the family or any friends should be bored on a day out on the lake:

Life is as good as it gets in the Lake Travis area. Only a few places can offer the same combination of glorious scenery, urban activity, and outdoor recreation possibilities. Situated 20 miles northwest of Austin, Lake Travis presents residents and visitors with a grand natural environment where the lake, woods, hills, and prairie come together in pristine harmony.
So if you are coming in from out of town and you are looking for the perfect family destination on a lake, look no further than Lake Travis. Just imagine a place where crystal clear streams and towering trees meet the majesty of the hills. The Lake Travis area is a little slice of heaven offering breathtaking beauty and a relaxing atmosphere. And you are still close enough to downtown Austin to have a fun night out in the city. You can have the best of both worlds when you’re in Austin, Texas.
