Undoubtedly the prettiest part of Texas, the hill country has something for everyone. Whether you choose to live on a lake, a golf course or acreage out in the country, the options are endless. The people are friendly and the pace is relaxed. It's hard to imagine that you get all of this and are centrally located to the cities of San Antonio and Austin.
The Hill Country is home to six fresh water reservoirs that make up the Highland Lakes. These lakes have been formed by several dams on the Colorado River which winds from the Texas/New Mexico border to Matagorda Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The Highland Lakes stretch from Austin to about 85 miles Northwest and include Lake Austin, Lake Lake Travis, Lake Marble Falls, Lake LBJ, Inks Lake and Lake Buchanan. The communities of Horseshoe Bay, Marble Falls, Burnet, Kingsland, Granite Shoals, Highland Haven and Sunrise Beach surround the lake offering plenty of restaurants, shopping and community events. A very popular sport on the Highland Lakes is fishing. Bass are plentiful and several fishing tournaments are held each year.
Many communities in the Highland Lakes have golf course living. Horseshoe Bay is the home of five award winning golf courses. The Horseshoe Bay Resort boasts four courses - Slick Rock, Applehead, Ram Rock, and Summit Rock. In the exclusive gated community of Escondido Golf and Lake Club, the Tom Fazio course is ranked with the best courses in the US. With over 20 golf courses in the immediate area, you are sure to find a tee time that suits your schedule and budget.
