Slightly off the beaten path and tucked neatly into the hill country of Texas, there exists a little piece of paradise called Lake Travis and in this paradise is Tacara Steiner Ranch. Located approximately 18 miles from downtown Austin, the Lake Travis area is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city while still offering a plethora of activities for area residents.
Lake Travis boasts 15 different parks, each offering variations of campgrounds, shore fishing, beaches, boat ramps and picnic areas. Visitors can hike at Arkansas Bend, fish at Cypress Creek, ride horses at Pace Bend, bird watch at Sandy Creek, and play sand volleyball or windsurf at Bob Wentz or at Windy Point. You can even take sailing lessons at Lake Travis Sailboat Rentals.
Food & Drink
Whether you’re looking to relive the day’s lake adventures or just relax after a hard day at work, give one of these craft breweries a try. Infamous Brewing Company and Oasis Texas Brewing Company have the best of Texas brews right on tap. If you’re in the mood for something more upbeat, check out the great food and live music at The Oasis on Lake Travis or enjoy the Cajun inspired food and music scene at Lone Star Grill & Bubbas Backyard. All are great ways to wrap up your day.
