Lakeside Retreats Allow for Waterside Work Sessions in Texas

There are nearly 200 lakes and reservoirs across Texas that are larger than 5,000 acre-feet, according to the Texas Almanac released annually by the Texas State Historical Association. With so many large bodies of water weaving through the state, it’s little wonder there are so many options when planning a waterside retreat. Water skiing, beaches and even crushing cars with heavy equipment are all possible at these lakeside retreats.
