Clearest Water in Texas

June 06, 2021

Where is Blue Hole Regional Park in Texas?

Blue Hole Regional Park is located in Wimberly, Texas. It’s a spring-fed natural water park surrounded by lush forest and complete with rope swings. Once upon a time, the area had been targeted for development, but the locals were so adamantly against the idea that they teamed up to prevent it - and were successful. Today, it’s a popular park in the Lone Star State, with more than four miles of hiking and walking trails, picnic spots, and, of course, top-notch swimming. It’s open from 8 a.m. to sunset, seven days a week. 

What is the best swimming hole in Texas? 

“Best” is, of course, subjective, but we’ve got a few favorites we love to share! Some of those include places like Krause Springs, Blanco State Park, Jacob’s Well, and the swimming hole at Neal’s Lodge. As we said, there are a lot of swimming holes scattered throughout Texas. Every one of them has a magic of its own; they’re scenic, interesting, and perfect for a hot day. Better still, they’re perfect on those days where humidity just adds to the heat! We also like Barton Springs Pool, near Austin. For a more complete list of our preferred swimming holes in Texas, this article should provide some inspiration. 

Where are some interesting places to visit in Texas?

Texas is an enormous state. If one were to drive from tip to tip, west to east, they would go on a 660-mile journey. The state is lengthy, too, coming in at an impressive 790 miles long from top to its southernmost tip. Being as huge as it means it’s got more than enough places that everyone should visit at least once! Some of those places include historic sites like The Alamo, and awesome free things to do, too, like the world-famous San Antonio River Walk. The Lone Star State is also rich with natural beauty, and we have 80 state parks to explore and enjoy.
