Lake Travis is a perfect hotspot for a getaway, whether you want to relax or party. However, there’s more to this beloved area than you might realize. This guide will show you everything you need to know about Lake Travis.


Visitors can take their boats on the lake to find a beautiful, private spot for their party. That said, if you’re looking to expand your party, then stop by Devil’s Cove, a famous party hotspot. Pull up, tie the boat, grab some drinks, and have some fun—it’s that simple. Luckily, if your boat rental comes with a captain, your group can drink responsibly knowing that a designated driver, so to speak, is on board. For instance, all of our party barge rentals on Lake Travis come with captains on board.


Everything you need to know about Lake Travis goes beyond what’s on the water. If you’d like to eat onshore, you can choose from a variety of delicious hotspots. The Lighthouse is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a tasty brunch. However, if you’re looking for a place to end the night with some cocktails and a gorgeous view of the sunset, the Oasis or Shack 512 are where you’ll be happiest. Suffice it to say, Lake Travis has no shortage of great places to grab a meal before or after hopping on your boat.


Visitors have an eclectic collection of lodging options from which to choose when visiting Lake Travis. The Hollows, the Reserves, and the Lakeway Resort and Spa are beautiful spots for vacationers to rent. However, if you want a bed-and-breakfast type of lodging, stop by Casa del Sol or the Cove.

If camping is more your style, Open Air Resorts or La Hacienda RV Resort and Cottages will be right up your alley. These are just a few of the many lodging options available for visitors—take the time to find one that appeals to your preferences because chances are, such an option exists.


There is more to do on the lake than eating and boating. If your group wants to go ziplining, you have two local options to choose from—Lake Travis Zipline Adventures and Cypress Valley Zipline and Canopy Tours.

On the other hand, anyone who wants to visit a water park during their stay also has multiple options, including Waterloo Adventures and Water Monkeys. Even golfers can find incredible spots to play a round on a gorgeous day. From Lakecliff to Lago Vista to Flintrock Falls, there’s a bevy of must-see golf courses in the area worth indulging in.
