Lakeway Real Estate
About 20 miles west of Austin, the small city of Lakeway is one of many communities created around the lakes that formed out of a hydro electric project initiated many years ago further up the Colorado River. With five golf courses within the city, many nearby marinas and a mild climate, Lakeway is a city of recreation.
The City of Lakeway, Texas, 78734, (2005 population 8,852.) is located in Travis county just 20 miles from downtown Austin. Located on the shores of Lake Travis, it offers a variety of water activities-sailing, cruising, fishing and windsurfing. There are many fine restaurants and great shops to serve visitors and residents, and golfing is great!
Lakeway has much to offer its residents. There are activities planned in the parks and in the Lakeway Activity Center. The Arts committee Brown Bag Lunches are a series of lunchtime concerts held every Thursday in January and February at the Activity Center. Attendees can pack a lunch or purchase from Lake Travis Catering at the center. Sounds like a great way to pass a winter lunchtime! Free concert from 12-1.
A great variety of clubs also meet at the Center. Lists for clubs and events can be found at http://cityoflakeway.com/.

A Compelling History, a Bright Future
If you gad lived in Lakeway millions of years ago, your home wouldn't be near a lake, but at the bottom of an ocean! The Texas Hill Country was once covered by water, leaving countless generations of fossil deposits to fascinate today's scientists. Ancient Indian tribes made their home here beginning some 5,000 years ago, hunting, gathering mussels, and living in harmony with the natural bounty surrounding them. Beginning in the 1840s, settlers acquired land and built such well-known local landmarks as Lohmann's Ford (later renamed Lohnman's Crossing Road), Anderson Mill, Hudson Bend, and Vineyard Bay. Once the rising land prices made ranching an expensive proposition in the 1960s, the Lakeway Company began purchasing the acreage and using it for subdivisions.
Today, Lakeway is a thriving community with a full range of amenities to suit your family's needs. Shopping, dining, banking, worship, and entertainment options are all within easy reach of the planned communities here. Lakeway offers a relaxing, peaceful, well-rounded lifestyle that only a small town in a unique location can provide.
