It’s Friday, Lake Travis, and the holidays are in full swing here in the Lake Travis area. With these nice cool temps, it’s finally feeling more like the holidays. Enjoy it while you can!
In case you missed us …
On Thursday, we gave you a sneak peek at the upcoming Christmas celebrations in the Lake Travis area like the Trail of Lights and Lights On! in Lakeway and Breakfast with Santa. Plus, on Saturday El Gaucho Winery is hosting ‘Be The Light’ Christmas Event — a day of live music, shopping, BBQ, and vino.
In local news …
Life in the Lake Travis area is about to get even sweeter because Tiff’s Treats is officially opening shop in Steiner Ranch in the Randalls Shopping Center. The grand opening event will take place on December 16 from 9am-1pm with local tennis celeb Andy Roddick there to meet you and sign autographs from 9am-11am. Cookie sales that day will benefit the Andy Roddick Foundation.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!

There’s a new holiday tradition in Austin this year at Circuit of the Americas and we’ve been hearing rave reviews. It’s called Winter Wonderland and it’s like a holiday amusement park with a skating rink, a human snow globe, singing trees, petting zoos, camel rides, carnival rides, food, shopping and more.
