Unique to Little Elm is the option to live lakeside, with close proximity to everything! 66 miles of Little Elm’s corporate town limits are Lewisville Lake’s shoreline. This creates a very scenic setting and almost every neighborhood has a view of the lake. In recent years, the population has dramatically increased, but the growth has been well managed. This area has retained its small town charm despite its explosive growth.
The amenities on the lake are impressive. There is a cable wakeboard park, several boat ramps, a large swim beach, a marina, and an amphitheater located on the water. Little Elm’s park system is considerable and vast. The many miles of hike and bike trails are located along the lake and its tributaries.
If you have a lake attitude and are drawn to small-town charm, Little Elm is the place for you! While Little Elm is no longer a hidden treasure, steps have been taken to retain the small-town charm and lakeside character.
