Happy Friday and welcome to the final weekend of January 2017!
We started off the week asking … what’s so great about north Austin? And your answer really depends on what type of big retailers you would like to see in the Lake Travis area … if any? Join the conversation on the Lake Travis Lifestyle Facebook page.
We also caught up with the latest news about Baylor Scott & White Health acquiring Lakeway Regional Medical Center and shared two big events on the horizon for next week.
What about events for this weekend?
There’s a great line-up of live music, wiffle ball games, family time at the library, a run with a bunch of gorillas, and more! Scroll down to check it all out and enjoy another weekend in Lake Travis!
