Skirting The Majestic Waters of Austin Texas

Apr 1, 2008
When considering a vacation on the water, more times than not a cruise on the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean is the more popular venue. Alternately, there is always the possibility of a beachfront water vacation getaway. More times than not, most people never take into consideration the option of an inland water vacation. Nevertheless, these lake and river adventures are out there and can be a very enjoyable and affordable vacation option.

Take, for example, the city of Austin in the great state of Texas. This grand city sits upon the humbly named Town Lake. The name does not even come close to doing this massive lake justice in the size as well as the majesty of it. Towne Lake is a favorite spot for local outdoors people. The location just adjacent to the city makes it an ideal outdoors opportunity for visitors who are visiting and enjoying this fine urban Texas metropolis. No matter where in the city you are, you are never more than a couple of miles from Town Lake, and sometimes only steps away.

As for the opportunities that this amazingly beautiful lake presents, they are only limited by the vacationers imagination. If it can be done on the surface of a lake, there is a venue for it at Town Lake. Local fishermen will tell you that this is the ultimate in local angling spots. The fish of choice here are a toss up between Largemouth Bass and Striped Bass. In the fall and early winter months, though, the local favorite fishing is Crappie. Anglers have been known to draw more than one hundred Crappie from these waters on a daily basis.

There is also the opportunity presented by the local lake tour establishments. These businesses provide boating adventures out on the lake. On these, you can sit in leisure and style as the yacht that you are on slowly makes its way through the lovely dark blue waters. There are tours that provide lunch and dinner, but by far the most sought after is that of the Bat watching tours. The underside of the bridge that crosses over Town Lake is one of the largest compilations of Bats in the United States. These creatures hang from the bottom of the bridge during the daylight hours, as is the nature of the bats, and come out when the sun begins to sink below the horizon. These tours will take you out as the sun begins to set, offering you unparalleled views of these somewhat creepy but enticing creatures.

Town Lake offers numerous other water opportunities. There is water skiing, boating, kayaking, rafting, and even the occasional diving. A week on the shores of Town Lake is comparable to any other major aquatic vacation adventure. The only major difference is that a trip to Town Lake will cost you several hundred dollars less! On your vacation getaway this year, why not choose an affordable vacation over the high-priced tourist areas of the southern United States. The warm and caring citizens of Austin Texas will always greet you with open arms and old West style hospitality.
