The city of Austin has four separate bodies of water that pass through it, the somewhat unusual part being that each is part of the same main body of water: the Colorado River (which, despite its name, has no relation to the much larger Colorado River out west, plus it's wholly located in Texas). All were created between the late 1930s and early 1950s as part of a WPA initiative during the Great Depression: a total of six dams were constructed, to both serve as reservoirs for municipal water-drinking supplies throughout Central Texas and prevent the originally dam-free Colorado River from flooding downtown Austin, which occurred multiple times following Austin's founding with significant damage each time. Lake Travis serves as Austin's main municipal water reservoir, and it's also extremely popular during the summertime months for watercraft of all types. Its depth can vary considerably depending on the amounts of rainfall received throughout the region, and during periods of drought its water level could be 60 feet or more less than normal. (Note that low lake levels can make normally invisible sandbars and the like hazardous for watercraft.) Rentals of all types of watercraft – everything from ski boats & jet skis to sailboats and pontoon boats – are available except at times when the water levels are exceptionally low; please feel free to ask for recommendations of where you can rent them. Regardless of water level, the Oasis Restaurant – located off of RM 620 on the lake's south shore – is admittedly touristy, but also one of the best locations in the state to watch the sunset. Although it's quite large, it can get quite crowded during peak season (March to October), and if you wish to visit, I'd advise getting there at least 90 minutes prior to sunset (and preferably earlier if possible).

Buckle up! 15 miles of stunning and breathtaking drive from your stay. The vast body of clear and blue water over the hills can be seen miles away across the horizon. Bring your phone and camera and make a few stops along the way to capture some memories.

When it comes to beautiful bodies of water, it doesn’t get much better than Lake Travis. This gorgeous Lake is situated about a half hour to 45 minutes outside of the heart of Austin, but the experience is most definitely worth the drive. There are many rental options at Lake Travis. Rent a 2 story barge and throw a party because some of these boats can hold up to 50 people. If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, there are smaller Pontoons available. Jet skis are the way to go if there is only one ore two of you and you just want to get out on the lake!
