Dam, that's a fine Lake (Buchanan)

Part of the Highland Lakes, Lake Buchanan brings a touch of Scotland to Texas Hill Country. Whether you're into fishing, swimming, or just messing about on boats, a Lake Buchanan vacation rental makes a great base for your next Texan getaway. This sprawling man-made lake is the second largest of the Highland Lakes. At its helm is the Buchanan Dam, and it has 124 miles of granite gravel shoreline and lake beaches, perfect for lounging on. After a busy day on the water, kick back on your private deck with a cool Texan beer and watch the sunset.

Things to do

Everything happens for a Riesling in Lake Buchanan

There's plenty of organized fun in the Lakes region. The Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center, just north of Burnet, offers a series of guided and self-guided hikes. Great for kids, young and old, who can go digging for fossils in an archeological dig site, meet beautiful butterflies, or learn about the resident beavers, birds, and snakes. The center also hosts nature walks for all the family. If you're more into wine than wildlife, head to the Fall Creek Vineyards in Tow, on the northern shores of Lake Buchanan. Book a tour of the winery and vineyard, followed by a tasting.

Activities

Keepin' it reel _ fishing on Lake Buchanan

Life on Lake Buchanan is all about embracing the great outdoors. Book a Lake Buchanan vacation rental right on the shore and go fishing, sailing, or play golf on 1 of the region's top courses. Fishing is a big draw and many rentals come with private docks. If you prefer to be on the water, rather than pulling slippery fish out of it, then book a boat excursion or rent your own from 1 of the marinas. Back at the ranch, chuck some fresh fish on the barbecue and watch the sunset, it's what vacations are all about.

Weather

Make like a lake and cool it down, man

Lake Buchanan and much of the central Texas Hill Country benefits from a humid subtropical climate; think hot steamy summers with temperatures regularly rocketing up to 100 degrees. It boasts a warm spring and fall, and blissfully short, mild winters, when days can still be a balmy 60-70 degrees. During the blazing summer months, the Highland Lakes region draws the biggest crowds, and Lake Buchanan vacation rentals get booked up far in advance. Come fall, the temperatures ease up a little and the rains come, so pack waterproofs and a good sense of humor.

While Lake Buchanan's rugged forest surroundings are a big draw to hikers, for more varied woodland trails head to the southeastern shores to Inks Lake State Park. Strewn with wildflowers, this hilly park also features cacti, yucca and cedar trees. A favorite haunt of birdwatchers, spot great horned owls, red-tailed hawks, and ospreys. Don't miss a hike to the Devil's Waterhole, a small canyon that's great for cooling off in.
