    We've been in a drought out here for a really long time so the lake hasn't filled up yet, which restricts some summer fun as can be imagined! The winter is usually a moderate cold and the summers are ridiculously hot with Fall and Spring in between. There's really no natural disasters out here; the occasional rain, maybe a light freeze, and that's it.

    There's not really a "nightlife" in Lakeway. If people would like to go out and dance or go clubbing, the best bet would be to go drive downtown. However, with that comes the responsibility of driving and most people don't want to because they're going out to have a good time but taxis cost a lot sometimes to get from Lakeway/Bee Cave to downtown Austin. There's a variety of restaurants for the most part but nothing that's open for a late night snack or if you were to just get SUPER hungry later on in the night besides Whataburger.

    There is a variety of stores out here in Lakeway/Bee Cave. Mostly grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants, drug stores and salons; therefore, not everything is found right out here. I can find what I need more than half of the time but it's getting so crowded to where I might as well make the drive at least 20-25 minutes to a different shopping center. There's not a lot of big name companies besides HEB or Randalls or Starbucks.
