In the heart of East Texas, is Lake Country and the jewel of East Texas Lake Living is Lake Palestine. While most lakes close to Dallas are enduring drought conditions for almost 5 years-this lake has been at full pool elevation since January of 2014. The water has been rolling over the dam and bringing Dallas buyers that love prime lakefront views and the waterfront lifestyle.
Browns Landing is located on the deep end of Lake Palestine, with pristine shorelines, spectacular views and off the beaten path feel providing a Sunday drive to your home every day. You will love living at Browns Landing-even if it's just on the weekend. The drive is an easy 1 1/2 hours on Interstate 20 with the new toll road Texas 49. If you love coffee make sure at Terrell to exit Hwy 34-This is THE main Starbucks until you reach Tyler!!! Driving to Lake Palestine offers great places to stop along the way-Collin Street Bakery has icebox cookies and soup/salad lunches with fresh baked goodies for the weekend, Miranda Lamberts Red 55 Winery has fun gifts and of course red wine and but my favorite is Four Winds Steakhouse in Wills Point. This restaurant is located on a pecan orchard and has deer stands so you can watch the wildlife while dining. Each drive your discover something new and seasonal, some of treasures I found over the years are fresh peaches in Terrell, blackberry farms near Canton, blueberry farms East of Athens and homegrown tomatoes in Chandler. Please Facebook me with any treasures you want to share.
Do you remember Summers fishing with your Dad? My Aunt taught me how to fish and would have loved this lake-see the how the fish are biting:
