Weather and ClimateHate long winters? Lewisville is where you want to be. The average temperatures in the winter are in the mid-50s, with only very rare days of snow and ice. Summers are hot and dry, and you can still wear shorts even on Halloween. Of course, the downside of the weather in this region is not the heat, but the tornadoes that occur nearly every year. The tornadoes are dramatic, but fortunately only a few people out of the millions who live in this area are seriously affected by them.
NightlifeMost people who live in Lewisville drive into Dallas and other parts of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex when they want to take advantage of major nightlife, like Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers games, nightclubs, symphony orchestras and even operas. There's plenty of high-quality entertainment in the area, but most of the options in Lewisville itself are smaller, such as sports bars. Frankie's Sports Bar & Grill has more than 30 HD TVs with DirectTV, a digital jukebox, and 20 local and international beers on tap. The Wild Turkey, open since 1978, boasts the best happy hour around, with specials every day of the week.
Tourist AttractionsYou can also get away from it all by spending a day at lovely Lake Lewisville, one of the few recreational bodies of water in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Lake Lewisville has a park that includes 662 acres for public use. Lake Lewisville has marinas that allow you to rent boats, jet skis and wave runners. When it's 100 degrees out in the summer, where else would you want to be than on the water? Outdoor recreation is one of the biggest pastimes for Lewisville residents. The city has more than 14 miles of trails, two recreation centers, and numerous parks. Lewisville is also really committed to maintaining these amenities and plans to expand to 51 miles of off-road trails, 50 miles each of sidewalks and bicycle routes and a 7.4 mile paddling trail down the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. Lewisville is also a big golf city. There are several highly rated golf courses in the city, including the Lakes at Castle Hills, Timbercreek Golf Center, Hank Haney Golf Ranch and the beginner-friendly Lake Park Golf Course.
Largest Employers and IndustriesAlthough many people who live in Lewisville commute to work in Dallas, Lewisville itself has many major employers.
