Places to Stay

Life is Lovely in Lakeway, Texas

By  | 

If being active is your thing, then go for a walk or run at Lakeway City Park or the nearby Hamilton Greenbelt. Lakeway City Park offers two miles of trails (some are hidden so you have to look carefully), volleyball courts, spaces to enjoy a picnic lunch – at the picnic tables or on the expansive lawn with a water front view. And recently lots and lots of water to swim in or let your dogs splash around in! Sam and I have now seen the lake empty and full, but either way there is a lot to do at Lakeway City Park.

Hamilton Greenbelt offers several miles of trails along Hurst Creek and Yaupon Creek – perfect for hiking, jogging or bike riding. This greenbelt is quaint and quiet with a lot of scenery to take in, and the hike is easy making this the perfect leisurely morning, afternoon, or evening activity. During the warmer seasons, you can spend the day in the sun and on the water at Mansfield Dam Park. For $10 per vehicle, you gain access to a boat ramp, picnic areas, swimming, and panoramic views of Lake Travis.

If you’d rather stay inside: sign up for a dance night with Go Dance Lakeway. If you happen to be visiting on the second Monday of the month, you can enjoy Lakeway’s free Big Band Bash where the 17-piece Republic of Texas Big Band brings the dance floor to life. Just bring your dancing shoes and your own beverages and snacks! You can have a girls’ night or a date night at Painting with a Twist – Lakeway and stay tuned for the family entertainment center, High 5, to open January 2016. With bowling, laser tag, arcade games, and food – this will be a fun spot for the whole family!
