This community is in northwestern Travis County. The main road through Volente was the old Chisholm Trail, where cattle drives used to water cattle. Volente was formed before Lake Travis was created, so in the late 1930s when the lake was formed, the village had to move to higher ground. Now Volente is a picturesque village with several miles of shore line on Lake Travis. A scenic drive winding down F.M. 2769 or Lime Creek Road is favored by motorcyclists and bicyclists.
Volente has full-service marinas with boat, jet ski and dock rentals. Bed-and-breakfasts, weekend rentals, and public boat ramps dot the area. The area offers views of Lake Travis and the topography of hills and canyons created by the original Colorado river.
The five-acre Shore Club Volente Beach waterpark overlooking Lake Travis offers swimming, sandy beaches and water slides. www.shoreclubtx.com.
