Happy holidays, Lake Travis! We hope you’ve been enjoying the “real winter” we’re having in the Texas Hill Country. On Monday and Tuesday, it’s supposed to be even colder. Brrr!
As we get ready to bid a fond farewell to 2017, it’s time to look ahead at 2018. Here’s what’s shakin’ this weekend.
If you’re looking for indoor fun, here’s a quick list of spots where you can stay active and stay warm: Cinemark (HCG), Color Me Mine (HCG), Moviehouse & Eatery (Four Points), High 5 (Oaks at Lakeway), Hill Country Indoor (student holiday memberships available), Rolly Pollies and Lake Travis Community Library.
Plus, there are plenty of ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the Lake Travis area whether you’re celebrating with kiddos or without. If you have a 2018 NYE event to share, let us know.
Happy New Year, friends!
