The City of Lakeway offers a lake lifestyle, proving that people can live where they play. The city began as a retirement and second-home community. But now families are drawn to the area because of the relaxed, lake lifestyle. Empty-nesters and young professionals are extremely attracted to the area. Lakeway has tennis courts, golf courses, hiking and biking trails, a private airport, marinas, a full service hotel and spa, scuba diving, and a lake sixty-nine miles long. The Lakeway Swim Center, located on Lakeway Blvd, offers a skate park, picnic tables, volleyball and basketball courts, a climbing wall, a terrace tanning area, and over sized chess and checkers.
