About Waterfront Homes in Austin
Lake Austin – Amidst our fair city lies a treasure in the form of Lake Austin. Highly sought after for its pleasant waters and relaxing views, Lake Austin is a joy to experience and a dream to live on. In contrast to Lake Travis, Lake Austin maintains a fairly constant level, making it ideal for wake surfing, wake boarding, water skiing, kayaking, fishing and just fun in general! Created in 1939, Lake Austin is one of the seven Highland Lakes along the Colorado River in Texas. It winds its way 22 miles from Mansfield Dam at the base of Lake Travis, through Westlake to the Tom Miller Dam near Downtown Austin.
