Welcome to Westlake

A PRIVATE TOWN WITH PASTORAL BEAUTY
 
 
This exclusive Texas town contains a quaint ambiance. Some of the oldest settlements in North Texas are found in Westlake, harkening back to the town's original development. Though proudly claiming a long legacy as a booming center of trade, lush natural bounty, and a warm community, the town is relatively young, only incorporated in 1956. Since then, it has blossomed into an affluent town with luxury real estate.
 
Within the delightful solitude found in Westlake’s many gated communities, there are a variety of architectural styles. Some lean towards spacious mansions, perfect for family and neighborhood gatherings. Others enjoy ranch-style homes set on large plots of manicured landscaping. No matter the design, Westlake is a stylish community where residents can relish the quiet.

Only minutes away from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, locals have access to big city delights such as concerts, sporting events, and shopping. Westlake is beloved for its private nature and peaceful atmosphere. Even so, this Texan town contains the corporate campuses of big names such as Charles Schwab, Fidelity Investments, Solana, and Deloitte University. Westlake is a town that is in constant evolution, introducing new shops and restaurants every year yet never compromising its pastoral beauty.

Local Lifestyle

Westlake is an affluent neighborhood. Residents are established, with working and retired professionals mingling with young families. Located next to the bustling suburb of Southlake, shopping, entertainment, and restaurants are just next door. In addition, Westlake’s placement is conveniently accessible to the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, allowing residents easy travel. Such affluence fosters luxurious amenities, providing the subtle sophistication of classic southern style.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Westlake Starbucks resembles a villa on the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. The exquisite stonework extends to the arch of the drive-thru to the patio. The baristas are welcoming and efficient and can make the best honey almond milk flat white in town.

Locals sit back and sip quality coffee while connecting with loved ones at Sip Stir Coffee House, a traditional cafe. Located in Solana Plaza, the cafe's central goal is to maintain a space where people can disconnect from the rush of everyday life and connect with friends and family over an exceptional cup of coffee.

La Scala Pizzeria has two sides — the classic, Brooklyn-style pizzeria where residents can stop in for a perfect slice of pizza and the fine dining experience where diners can sit down to an authentic Italian menu. Both sides have established themselves as an exceptional restaurant with delicious food.

Where do residents go to unwind? Westlake residents love a chance to stop into the Vaquero Club. As a luxury country club, there are endless amenities to enjoy. Golfers play a leisurely game on the 71-par course. Locals can shop in one of the in-house boutiques or eat in an exquisite restaurant.
 

Things to Do

Westlake partners many of its events with the neighboring town of Southlake. Westlake residents love exploring the festivals, celebrations, and holiday events within surrounding areas. However, there are some beloved local events.

Every spring and fall, residents gather in the elegant tree-lined courtyard of Solana Plaza to experience the Annual Concert Series. Local musicians come together to perform throughout the season, enchanting onlookers with good music and a good time. The event has also drawn brands and solo artists from surrounding cities within the Dallas-Fort Worth area to introduce the public to new performers.

Since 1999, Westlake has been awarded as a Tree City USA Community by The Arbor Foundation, a prestigious award honoring the city’s commitment to natural preservation and tree conservation. Every year Westlake celebrates Arbor Day with the fanfare it deserves. Each year the town finds new ways to celebrate, with the main event being planting trees and learning how best to preserve the environment. Past celebrations have included live music, food trucks, face painting, crafts, and a fire truck tour. The event raises money to maintain Westlake via raffles, corporate sponsorships, and donations.

Lovers of classic cars relish the annual Westlake Classic Car Show. Every year those who enjoy viewing classic cars in perfect condition anticipate the yearly car show, which is hosted as a fundraising event for Westlake’s Historical Preservation Society. These cars are the best of the best. You will see true classics, such as Packards, Thunderbirds, and Rolls Royce, without customs or modifications to preserve the true beauty of automobiles.

The holiday season rings in at Westlake’s Community Tree Lighting Celebration. On December first, locals gather at the Terrace at Solana to light a giant Christmas tree. The whole family can have fun with horse-drawn carriages, live music playing holiday favorites, face-painting, a live reindeer, seasonal treats, and a visit from Santa. Westlake’s Fire Department collects toys for the annual toy drive, encouraging charitable contributions for the surrounding areas.
