Austin Couch Potato Trip Part 3

If you're ever in Austin there is one place that you must go to. It's the Oasis Restaurant on Lake Travis. It is a short drive outside of the city but the drive is gorgeous and breathtaking. The food is great as well but the view.... oh my... the view... it's beyond amazing.

I first went to the Oasis on a school trip in 1997. It was the year that I fell in love with Zcaveriche jeans, loved every Bryan Adams song, and first went to Austin. Back then the Oasis was a little wooden restaurant that had level upon level of shaky wooden decks built onto the sides of the cliffs. The Lobby even had a huge tree growing up through the middle of it. Sometime in the early 2000's the wood building burned to the ground and they have been slowly rebuilding for years now. Everytime we go another part has been added on.

I love the architechture on the outside. There are also iron sculptures around every corner and turn.

That's not even the best part. The best thing is the view.

Beautiful right? I didn't get the best pictures of the view because His Royal Highness claimed I spent too much time in the gift shop and they had already gone outside to see the view, while I was shopping. So I just snapped a few quick pictures and headed back to the car.

There is a golf cart that runs people too and from the restaurant to their cars. This one drove extremely fast and Princess Newbie was hiding from the wind. I was actually scared because our less coordinated child, Princess Goofy, was riding on the outside edge of the golf cart and the driver was taking sharp, fast turns. If you can fall down an escalator, you can fall out of a golf cart.

To see the best pictures and find out more information, view the Oasis Website here.

You might want to watch out for your kids though.... Apparently they only card those under 2.
