Relax In A Tropical Wonderland At The Biggest Freshwater Swimming Pool In Texas

We all know how unbearably hot the West Texas desert can be, so having a place to cool off during the summer is crucial. Balmorhea State Park, home to the world’s largest freshwater pool, is one such destination. Spring-fed and pristine as can be, this hidden oasis is the pinnacle of fun in the sun.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Balmorhea State Park is currently closed but hopes to reopen within the next few months. Visit the park’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
