6 Terrific Towns on the Water - Article from Money Magazine - Marble Falls Makes the List!!
Founded in 1887 by General Adam R. Johnson, Marble Falls is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country on the Colorado River. It is centrally located 47 miles northwest of Austin and 85 miles north of San Antonio, in the middle of the Highland Lakes area, the largest chain of lakes in Texas.
Before the dam was built to form Lake Marble Falls on the Colorado River, there were falls of marble giving the name Marble Falls to the city. The falls are now under water and only visible on those rare occasions when the LCRA lowers the lake for repairs.
Don't forget to visit the renowned Blue Bonnet Cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner or for "pie happy hour".
