Lake Conroe Is The Ultimate Getaway
Lake Conroe is located in Montgomery, which is part of the Houston greater Metropolitan area. The town itself is fairly small, only around 5 square miles, but the lake itself is magnificent and large in scale. The gorgeous views the lake provides from the best resort in the area are a sight to be scene. You can rent a pontoon boat, day cruiser, or even just jet ski throughout the whole lake.
The resort, La Torretta Lake Resort offers affordable vacation packages, so you are right on the lake. The hotel itself has a water park, multiple pools, and even a lazy river that the kids will love. For golf fans, there is an 18 hole course right on the property, and a miniature golf course for the younger kids. There are even a few restaurants on the property to enjoy, one of which overlooks the lake. The Spa and workout facilities are also top notch. Have some much needed relaxation time with a massage, body scrub, or facial. You can’t go wrong with this excellent resort which was completely renovated a few years ago, so it’s modern and upscale.
Other Activities To Enjoy
Other things to do by the water are fishing for Largemouth Bass, kayaking tours, and canoeing on this massive 21,000 acre lake. The average depth of the water is only around 20 feet, and the water quality is very high, so you can swim on its shores with ease. They take great care of this wonderful attraction in Montgomery. Spring break is one of the best times to go when the weather is starting to warm up, and the water temperature is around 61-70 degrees. So it’s a comfortable swim, especially with the sun shining like it normally does. Plus, it’s not as hot as it would be in the main Summer months.
