Quite possibly our favorite spot in Austin. Barton Springs is a natural spring in downtown Austin. The water stays 68 degrees year round, and it feels wonderful during this hot hot summer here. We bring our big old goggles, noodles, and swim along the bottom looking for fish, turtles, and anything else crawling along the bottom of the spring. It's become a weekly tradition. We go in the evening when Cameron gets home from work, and cool off from the day.
After we go swimming, we usually go to a trailer park and get Torchy's Tacos. Best chips & queso in town. Hands down.
Now come to Austin & enjoy Barton Springs with us too!!
