Carrying the Spanish name for "lake view," this city was originally a lakeside resort, incorporated in 1984. The community encompasses more than 15 miles of shoreline on Lake Travis. It is the gateway to the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge (see Marble Falls) which is home to the endangered golden-cheeked warbler and the black-capped vireo. www.friendsofbalcones.org.
Abundant white-tailed deer roam along the lakeshore and golf courses. There is year–round golfing, boating, fishing, hunting and tennis.
The Wildlife Refuge hosts the Balcones Songbird Festival in April and May, and Refuge Week in October. The Chamber of Commerce kicks off Hill Country Dayz Festival in September and October.
