When you stay at home …
The Central Texas Water Coalition found that when the lake levels fall below 660 feet for a long time, the number of visitors drops by 350,000 and businesses stand to lose $23 million. Six out of 13 boat ramps on Lake Travis are closed.
LCRA isn’t worried about low lake levels, so you shouldn’t be either.
When you go to Wendy’s …
When you want a drive-thru window for Shipley’s Do-Nuts …

When you go back for more …

When you want good food and batting cages …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale gave you the scoop on what’s open and what’s coming soon in the Lake Travis area.
