Lakeway is a little gem of a city located about 40 minutes northwest of Austin. Just like the name would imply, this scenic town is just 15 minutes from Lake Travis and snuggled against the shores of the breathtaking Colorado River.
The city feels more rural than larger suburbs like Round Rock and Cedar Park and is exceedingly charming with its rich greenery and serene river views. It’s one of those places that’s just far enough from everything to feel like a getaway, but close enough to make use of all the modern conveniences families rely on.
Though Lakeway isn’t large and only has a population of about 15,000 people, it’s growing at a steady pace. Most of the residents work outside the city and coming and going is easy with TX-71 running right alongside the southwest side of town.
