    The small city is a newer, up-and-coming area with great school systems, new and affordable housing, many amenities and shopping, great city council and a great SAFE place for families. There are a lot of family activities throughout the year and a lot of Texas and American pride events.
    Review Bee Cave
    We've been in a drought out here for a really long time so the lake hasn't filled up yet, which restricts some summer fun as can be imagined! The winter is usually a moderate cold and the summers are ridiculously hot with Fall and Spring in between. There's really no natural disasters out here; the occasional rain, maybe a light freeze, and that's it.
    There's not really a "nightlife" in Lakeway. If people would like to go out and dance or go clubbing, the best bet would be to go drive downtown. However, with that comes the responsibility of driving and most people don't want to because they're going out to have a good time but taxis cost a lot sometimes to get from Lakeway/Bee Cave to downtown Austin. There's a variety of restaurants for the most part but nothing that's open for a late night snack or if you were to just get SUPER hungry later on in the night besides Whataburger.
