With Summer approaching fast and furious, you’ll definitely need a place to shake the Texas heat. But luckily, Mother Nature blessed Austin with a number of splashy swimming spots that offer a fun way to cool off. Check out our Urbanspace Top 5 Swimming Spots below!

 

Barton Springs Pool: Combine great swimming with people watching at the historic Barton Springs Pool, just minutes from downtown Austin. Located in the heart of the 360-acre Zilker Park, this swimmer’s paradise features clear water fed from underground springs that stays a refreshing 68 degrees year ‘round, along with grassy hills for sunbathing.

Hamilton Pool Preserve: Located a 40-minute drive from Austin in Texas Hill Country, Hamilton Pool Preserve is a geological wonder.

Jacob’s Well: Swim in an artesian spring just 40 minutes outside of Austin at Jacob’s Well Natural Area.
