While it may seem like you just rang in the New Year, it’s time to put on the sunscreen. Lake Travis spring break 2016 is upon us!
Many of you will be taking some time off to enjoy spring break activities. Whether you’re staying local or flying into Austin, with an almost full Lake Travis, it’s a beautiful time to be here and enjoy everything the Lake Travis area has to offer.
LTL will be taking a spring break as well. But we’re not going to leave you without a bunch of places to go and things to do for a spring break in the Lake Travis area.
From all of us here at Lake Travis Lifestyle — enjoy your Lake Travis spring break 2016. We look forward to catching up with you when we return on Monday, March 21.
1. Get on and in the water
With the lake as full as we’ve seen in years, it’s a great time to experience the water on a boat. At Lakeway Marina you can rent boats, water sport vehicles and private fishing guides.
If you’re around Emerald Point Marina, visit the folks at Just For Fun Watercraft Rental and they’ll get you on the lake in style.
If you’re lucky enough to own your own boat, there are plenty of public boat ramps to get you on the water fast — 13 in all — and you can find out where they’re at here.
2. Get in the air
If you’re looking to stay a little closer to the ground, try soaring across the beautiful canyons and Lake Travis with Lake Travis Zipline. With 7 zips — ranging from 250 feet to 2000 feet — and over two hours of fun it’s an ideal Lake Travis spring break adventure.
Here are more activities you can try checking off your Lake Travis Bucket List.
3. Take a hike
In Lakeway, enjoy the sweet sounds of Hurst Creek when you stroll Hamilton Greenbelt. It’s the perfect place for a family outing or a peaceful escape.
Spring break is a great time for Texas Bluebonnet sightings and a day trip out to Enchanted Rock. And if you are anywhere near Johnson City, get lost in Perdernales Falls State Park while camping, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, and bird watching.
4. Go horseback riding
Make this Lake Travis spring break memorable with a scenic trail ride or six mile river ride on top of a horse. Head on over to Silver’s Trails in Spicewood for a true Texas experience.
Run by a mother and daughter team, Silver’s Trails offers lessons, horseback riding, and private parties. Explore the Hill Country with the entire family or bring along your special someone for a romantic ride for two.
5. Get pampered
Spring break or any time, there’s nothing better than a little pampering and there’s no place better than here.
Tucked inside Steiner Ranch, let Lake Austin Spa sooth away your worries with a wide variety of massages and facials. If you’re looking for a culinary experience along with your pampering check into Travaasa for a memory to last a lifetime.
6. Get your golf on
For the serious golfer in you, there are plenty of public and private golf courses in the Lake Travis area. Boasting stunning greens and views, Falconhead Golf Club is a great choice for golf, lessons, and lunch.
Check here for our guide to Lake Travis area golf courses.
For the less-serious golfer in you, bring the family to Day Break Miniature Golf. After returning your boat at Emerald Point Marina, walk up the hill, grab a club, and swing it around the 18-hole miniature golf course.
7. Become a foodie
Enjoy a day at the lake filling your belly with the fabulous cuisine around the area. Start with a waffle at Backdraft Pizzeria, brunch at Lucy’s on the Lake, and a special night out at Hudson’s on the Bend.
Need more? A lot of new restaurants are landing in the area. And the classics are still here. Check out the selection of Lake Travis area restaurants.
8. Take it inside
With such beautiful scenery why would you ever want to be inside? Well … it can rain here in March. But the Lake Travis area knows how to have fun both outside and in.
For adults, Infamous Brewing Company is a mix of indoor and outdoor entertainment. Enjoy the flavors of their locally brewed beer while on a tour of the brewery. Or stop by to celebrate their 3rd anniversary on March 19th.
