The Most Beautiful Swimming Hole In America Is Right Here In Texas… And It Isn’t Jacob’s Well
When you think of swimming holes in Texas, what comes to mind first? For many people, it’s Jacob’s Well, an artesian spring with a 140-foot-deep underwater cave system. According to Country Living, however, Jacob’s Well isn’t the most beautiful swimming hole in Texas. That honor goes to Hamilton Pool in Dripping Springs; in fact, the pool has been voted the most beautiful swimming hole in America!
Please note: swimming at Hamilton Pool is currently prohibited due to falling rocks. The trail leading behind the waterfall is also closed. Visit the preserve’s website for the most up-to-date information.
