What is the nicest lake to live on in Texas?

The term 'nicest' is very subjective. To fisherman, Lake Worth or Lake Ray Roberts is an amazing lake. To someone that enjoys boating or skiing it may be Lake Austin or Lake Marble Falls. It would be wise to spend a day at each of our Texas lakes and decide for yourself before purchasing a Lake Home in Texas.

Why lake houses are better than beach houses?

Lake front properties are much secluded and have a more peaceful demeanor that a beach home. There are far fewer visitors and typically no public beaches. You can enjoy water craft, fishing, skiing and swimming at the lake in a calmer and safer environment. You also don't encounter hurricanes.

Why do people like lake houses?

Living at a lake house feels like you are on vacation every day. You will find yourself spending time sitting on the back porch staring at the water. Your stress level should go down with the slower pace, fresh air, walking, swimming and relaxing environment. Hearing the birds, feeling the breeze and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets have been claimed to be mentally healthy as well.

What to know before living on a lake?

Buying a second home or moving your primary residence to lake living comes with some potential problems. You should ask yourself the following questions before making the move.

  • What is it you love about lake living?
  • Are you comfortable with wild animals, snakes and tons of frogs?
  • Have you reviewed the water quality or warnings about your selected lake?
  • Do you know the tax rates, required flood insurance or other financial requirements?
  • Is the extra drive time to the city acceptable?
  • Are the local hospitals, grocery stores, and religious centers acceptable?
  • How is the available internet connections?

Does living near a lake make it cooler?

Technically yes it can be much cooler at the lake. The reason involves some complex physics, but it comes down to the fact water changes temperature much slower than land. So it takes longer for the summer heat to heat up that huge body of water. You may also find the breeze off the lake is cooler.
