Things to Do

Visit Cottonwood Shores for a Little Fun in the Sun

By  | 


One would never imagine so much activity packed into only two square miles of land mass, but Cottonwood Shores proves it can be done. The first thing you notice about the small community of friendly people is the beautiful scenery surrounding it and the access to the lakes. Access for Lake Marble Falls and Lake LBJ; both of which are favorites with locals and vacationers, can be found here. Along with the boat ramps there are boat and jet-ski rentals in the area to round out your day of fun on the water. A great day trip would be to invite family and friends, rent a pontoon boat, and glide along the waters of either of the constant level lakes.

A vast parks system complete with nature preserve ensures even those who would rather stay on dry land can have fun! Beautiful picnic areas on the bank sides are available if you’d just like to sit and watch all the water activity during the warmer months, and not far down the road you can even play a round of golf or Putt-Putt style at the Horseshoe Bay Resort.

Hill Country Community Theatre


If the Texas heat is not to your liking –have no fear! Cottonwood Shores boasts of several places to enjoy air-conditioning and great times. One of the local favorites is the Hill Country Community Theatre, established in 1985. The theatre produces five shows a season featuring dramas, comedies, and musicals, drawing theater goers from all over the area. Locals and tourists alike love coming to see their family, friends, and neighbors feign characters from favorite books and screen plays. The Hill Country Community Theatre is home to some amazing talent.

If live music is more your style, you’re in luck! On the Rocks Restaurant and Bar has a back yard style stage that hosts some amazing talent of their own! Local favorite and Cottonwood Shores resident, John Arthur Martinez, can be seen regularly performing here; his laid-back manner with the audience and popularity all over the world, along with the gorgeous views and good food here, makes it a must-stop locale for tourists and residents. Or, if you’re hungry for great Tex-Mex while staring out at those fantastic Hill Country views look no further than Julie’s Cucina. This place routinely gets rave reviews for their food and they too offer live music. Julie’s is a great way to unwind on a Friday night!
