It’s going to be a gorgeous weekend, Lake Travis friends! The lakes are 99% full and the boat ramps are open. Your local marinas are ready to help you make the most of life on the lake.
Before you take a look at the weekend ahead, let’s take a look back at what went on this past week …
On Wednesday, we raised a salted-rim glass to celebrate #NationalMargaritaDay in Lake Travis. If you missed the chance to sip your favorite tequila-based cocktail this week, it’s a beautiful weekend to make up for it.
Yesterday, Cathy took us on a virtual juicing adventure to figure out which smoothie shops and juice bars are fueling the Lake Travis community.
