Lewisville City Guide
If you aren’t familiar with Lewisville, Texas, that’s probably because it used to be called Holford’s Prairie. Back in 1844, that is. In 1855 Basdeal Lewis bought the land and renamed it after himself, establishing the Lewisville Post Office so that people knew he meant business.
Lewisville residents are endlessly resourceful—back in the 1930s, they formed the Good Roads Committee which resulted in the federal government providing the funding to pave the dirt road Route 77 and the subsequent "Coming Out of the Mud" ceremony. Also in the ‘30s (a good decade for the town), the people of Lewisville chased down the Barrow Gang after they robbed the town’s bank and helped capture the gang’s leader.
Today, Lewisville continues to be a quaint little town with a population of just 95,290. The climate is humid subtropical, which means that it rarely sees extreme weather (except Hurricane Carla in 1961), making it an ideal place to live. You can enjoy movies, live theater, art classes, and an art gallery at the offputtingly-named Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater (MCL Grand). Or you can try your hand at One Hour To Escape, an interactive treasure hunt where you must solve puzzles in order to escape a room within 60 minutes. Tip: sign up your whole office and “accidentally” leave your boss locked in the room (don’t worry, the doors don’t actually lock).
Speaking of locked rooms, did you know that Lewisville offers more than one self storage facility? Not bad for a small town!
You’ll find many public parks here, such as Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park (someone really needs to come up with better names), Lewisville Lake Park, and Scion Skate Park, with lakes, a skateboarding area, and over 14 miles of trails. Once the sun sets, head over to the Drunken Donkey for an order of Donkey Balls and craft beer, Hat Tricks for some live local music, or Canucks, a dive bar set inside an old hotel.
If you’re interested in a bird’s eye view of the town, you won’t want to miss Air Adventures Aloft for an incredible hot air balloon ride. And if you feel the need to get out of town for bit, go straight to Old Town Station in the historic downtown district where you can take an A-train north to Denton or south to Carrollton.
