Not far from Austin and San Antonio and just a short drive from Dallas and Houston – by Texas standards anyhow – the Colorado River has been shaped into a winding chain of lakes in the state's rugged and historic Hill Country.
Striking vistas and spectacular sunsets, outstanding vineyards, golf courses, resort accommodations, hiking, hunting, bird-watching, cycling (with or without a motor) and – of course – miles and miles of water for fishing and boating make the Highland Lakes a great escape. It's a thriving tourist destination, a nationally-ranked place to retire, and an increasingly popular area for the urban-weary to raise families. With fewer than 10,000 residents, its biggest city, Marble Falls, is still really more of a town.
But for an area about the size of Delaware, you need a guide. Here it is!
We'll show you where to find its big national retail stores and its unique specialty shops, its Texas-flavored nightlife and its fun family festivals, its steak and barbecue and its Thai food and sushi. Lake Country Life is the weekly full-cover magazine supplement to the area's largest and most awarded newspapers: The (Marble Falls) Highlander, The Llano County Journal and the Burnet Bulletin. (The Bulletin, by the way, has been reporting on our part of Texas since 1873 – about 65 years before the Highland Lakes were even created.)
