The Great Outdoors

At various points off of the trail, you will find several splash ponds, climbing rocks, fishing docks, restrooms and picnic areas. Itching for something more? Austin is right next door. On those hot, sweaty summer days that are bound to show up, visit Austin's Barton Springs Pool, an outdoor community pool where locals and tourists alike float lazily in the water, play water sports or splash each other to no end.
If you are a music lover, you can't be in a better location to attend the South by Southwest festival held every March in Austin, where established and up-and-coming musicians flock for several days of endless musical performances. As the tourists scramble to find hotels, you will rest assured knowing you have to only travel a short distance to rest your head for the evening.
Tours to Tout
Don't forget Austin City Limits, an American public television music program recorded at the studios in Austin. Many of the buildings constructed shortly after the arrival of those settlers from South Carolina still stand and are also waiting to be explored, such as the one-room schoolhouse and church combination, as well as the town cemetery, which are both protected as national landmarks.
