Krause Springs

This particular watering hole is listed in the Natural Registration of Historic Places and is considered by many to be perhaps one of the best places to swim in all of Austin. Krause Springs is home to many things that can be enjoyed, such as more than 34 small-sized springs, a man-made wallowing pool, a natural swimming pool, and a waterfall. To help add further amounts of fun, there are even cliffs and a rope swing. Those who wish to stay in this area for an entire weekend can take advantage of all sorts of campgrounds and restaurants such as Opie’s BBQ.


Barton Springs

This fascinating three-acre attraction in Zilker Park features a clear natural springs that maintains a 68-degree temperature at all times throughout the year. This is wonderful for those who are looking for a great method of relief on days that are extremely hot. There is also a swimming pool that comes complete with diving boards, large-sized shallow areas, many lifeguards on duty, and plenty of public restrooms. It should be noted that there is a cover charge: adults can enjoy Barton Springs for $3, while children can enjoy it for $1 to $2, depending on how old they are.


Hamilton Pool

Located approximately 40 minutes outside downtown Austin, this historic swimming pool is, in reality, a collapsed grotto that now features a waterfall that measures an astonishing 50 feet in height, as well as beautiful rock formations around the entire pool itself. Whether you’re looking to swim, get some shade, or take in some hiking, Hamilton Pool is definitely one watering hole that you should consider taking a trip to. For this attraction, it is recommended that you make reservations first.


Comal River

This is considered by many Austin residents to be perhaps one of the best methods of cooling off during a hot summer day. Trips down this river can be arranged in increments of two, four, or six hours, and you can even float down the river at your own specific speed. For $12 or $15, you can rent a tube that comes with or without a bottom attached to it. It should be noted that visitors are not permitted to bring canned beverages onto the river.


Blue Hole

This watering hole is completely surrounded by approximately 126 acres of grasslands and forests, as well as an ecosystem that is home to all sorts of plants, reptiles, mammals, and fish. Swimming season for this attraction traditionally begins during Memorial Day weekend, and there is a cover charge of $8 for adults and $4 for children aged 4 to 12.
