Lakeway Reviews

Lakeway is a great place to grow up, its only ever a ten minute drive to the lake and there is a good amount to do in and around lakeway. On the lake you can boat, paddle board, or zip line, and if the water is not for you the galleria, a mini shopping mall, is only a fifteen minute drive away. There is much to do for children and the schools are top in the state and have a great staff that encourages growth, creativity, and learning. The commute to Austin is only 30 minutes, and there are many inexpensive things to do in Austin. Overall Lakeway is the perfect place to be any age!

I moved to Lakeway with my parents about 3 years ago. In these 3 years, a lot has changed. They have added more restaurants, new shops and a new HEB. There are a lot of jobs in this area and the school are some of the best in Austin. At times there can be some traffic but otherwise not to bad. Everyone is pretty friendly and there is always something going on for families. The town mostly has older residents or families so there is not much of a nightlife scene, but you aren't to far from downtown Austin which is nice!
Lakeway is the place to be! Being in the suburbs of Austin is amazing because you are so close to the city, but you can reside is a calmer area full of our own unique stores and culture. The great things about Lakeway is having Lake Travis right in your backyard, being able to ride your bike to the local pool or shopping center, and being able to call yourself a lifer as a senior in the school district because everyone has lived here for their entire lives.
