Land Between the Lakes (Steiner Ranch slogan)

“Land Between the Lakes” is a slogan of Steiner Ranch, a development between Lake Austin and Lake Travis, a few miles north of the city of Austin. Steiner Ranch features the University of Texas Golf Club and the development has been popular with families.
The “Land Between the Lakes” slogan is easily parodied (see below, “A ton of SUV’s between the lakes” and “cement between the lakes”).

There are many advantages to living at Steiner Ranch. Convenient access to major employers, schools, entertainment and shopping are just a few of the things which make “the land between the lakes” the best place for families to live in Austin, Texas. 
Wikipedia: Lake Austin
Lake Austin is a reservoir on the Colorado River in Austin, Texas in the United States. The reservoir was formed in 1939 by the construction of Tom Miller Dam by the Lower Colorado River Authority. Lake Austin is one of the seven Highland Lakes created by the Lower Colorado River Authority, and is used for flood control, electrical power generation, and recreation. Loop 360 spans the lake at the Pennybacker Bridge.
The other reservoirs on the Colorado River are Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis, and Lady Bird Lake.
Wikipedia: Lake Travis
Lake Travis is a reservoir on the Colorado River in central Texas in the United States. The reservoir was formed in 1942 by the construction of Mansfield Dam on the western edge of Austin, Texas by the Lower Colorado River Authority. Lake Travis has the largest storage capacity of the seven reservoirs known as the Highland Lakes, and stretches 65 miles (105 km) upriver from western Travis County in a highly serpentine course into southern Burnet County to Max Starcke Dam, southwest of the town of Marble Falls. The Pedernales River, a major tributary of the Colorado River, flows into the lake from the southwest in western Travis County. The lake is used for flood control, water supply, electrical power generation and recreation.
The other reservoirs on the Colorado River are Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Austin, and Lady Bird Lake.
