Take the canoe or kayaks for a little trip up or down the lake or feed the swans that come in the morning.

The best margaritas and mexican food at Maudies is 2 minutes drive and only 10 minutes to downtown Austin for all the restaurants, nightlife, and many great attractions that Austin has. Townlake, Barton Springs, South Congress and 6th street are just minutes away. This IS central Austin.
