Lakeside Luxury: Mount Bonnell, Lake Travis, and Lakeway Professional Review and Guide
"This is a popular hot weather day trip. Bring your swimsuit from April through October, along with an old pair of sneakers to navigate the rocky Lake Travis beaches. Mount Bonnell is the highest point in town with a panoramic view of the city and the surrounding hills. Visitors must park and walk up some steep steps to the lookout, but the view is well worth the climb. Lakeway offers thirty-two tennis courts, three championship golf courses, a golf academy, a full-service marina, party boats, horseback riding, hayrides, two swimming pools, a fitness center, and a conference center.
The World of Tennis, one of the finest tennis facilities in the country, is also located here. Guests can stay at the Lakeway Inn, purchasing various packages that include the use of these facilities. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Austin. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
