Lewisville is a popular city in Texas, located about 25 miles north of downtown Dallas. It was founded in 1844 and then incorporated in 1925, but the city didn’t begin gaining popularity until the completion of Lake Lewisville in 1954. Since then, the population has steadily risen and continues to rise each year. It is estimated that in 2014, the city’s population was at well over 100,000 people. It is part of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, located at the northern tip of it.
There is no doubt that Lewisville’s most popular hot spot is the Lake, bringing in people from all around the Metroplex. There are five marinas and thirteen boat ramps located on the Lake, so there’s always plenty of room for everybody! There are several campgrounds around the Lake and boat rentals too.
The most popular part of Lake Lewisville has to be the place they call Party Cove near Westlake Park. At Party Cove, visitors are encouraged to pull their boats up, tie off with their neighbors, crank the tunes, open the cooler, and enjoy themselves. There are also several restaurants on or near the Lake, some of which include Sneaky Pete’s, Wet Bar & Grill, Stan’s Lakeview Taphouse, and Captain Jack’s Floating Bar & Grill.
As much fun as the Lake can be, that is by no means the only popular thing to do in Lewisville. The city is home to two breweries, Cobra Brewing Company and Witherspoon Distillery, both of which you can enjoy a meal while sampling some of the city’s local beers and liquor. There’s the Zone Action Park, where you can load the kids up in the car and enjoy an afternoon filled with go-carts, mini golf, and arcade games. If you’re more of an outdoorsy kind of person, there are several parks located in Lewisville, complete with more than 14 miles of hiking and biking trails. For golf enthusiasts, there are five critically acclaimed courses in the city.
Lewisville has many gorgeous neighborhoods to search for your next home, all of which boast unique features and events. Some of the popular neighborhoods in the city include Lewisville Valley, The Oaks, Castle Hills, Westwood, and Vista Ridge Estates.
