The Incredible Spring-Fed Pool In Texas You Absolutely Need To Visit

Summer is fast-approaching, and that means us Texans are already thinking about where we can immerse ourselves in some cool, refreshing water. Whether you’re more of a swimming pool or ocean person, there’s one place in our state that converges the two perfectly: Barton Springs pool in Austin. It combines the cleanliness of a pool and the natural, non-chemical aspect of the ocean for one of the most unique swimming experiences you’ll ever have. The structure itself is man-made while the water is spring-fed, and the color is pristine as can be. It doesn’t get much better than that.

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:
