  • Austin’s just plain cool. We all know this. But a big reason why Austin real estate is booming is the wealth of incredible lakes dotting Texas Hill Country. Luxury communities like Enclave at Rough Hollow put residents near many of the top lakeside beaches in the region. Check out a couple of Travis County’s real jewels: Pace Bend Park and Sandy Creek are both fantastic destinations for day trips or overnight camping.


  • With 6 different beach parks to choose from, a relaxing day at Lake Lewisville is just what the doctor ordered. Take advantage of lakeside grills by packing charcoal and loading the cooler up with all your favorite BBQ goodies.


  • It’s no secret that summers are hot in South Texas. Escape the Houston heat and head to the Gulf. And sure, Galveston’s great, but why not try a new beach on for size? Surfside is just an hour from downtown with a quaint, old-time beachy feel that will make you fall in love with the sea all over again.



  • Chicago’s lakeside location is absolutely legendary. And with 26 full miles of Lake Michigan beach to enjoy, you can easily find somewhere new to dip your toes in the sand. You’ve got dozens of beaches to choose from, so go grab your paddleboard.

Don’t Forget Your Sunglasses!
