Jacobs Well, Wimberley, TX

Jacobs Well attracts those with a daredevil persona. This location is home to Texas' longest underwater cave system. For those who want an exhilarating rush, you would be taking a plunge into a hole that is 140 feet deep.

Hamilton Pool, Dripping Springs, TX
What was once entirely underwater now sits as a cave-life pool with a semi-creepy look to it. Its dome-shaped roof creates such a relaxing vibe. This place has spring break written all over it, but be sure to plan and book a reservation because, the word is, it's a pretty popular place. It's relatively close, too, just 20 miles from Austin-DAY TRIP!

Pedernales Falls State Park

This location is a spring break special. It has enough things to do to have your schedule jam-packed all weekend. You can go hiking on a trail, go horseback riding, and if you haven't heard of geocaching : I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU CATCH UP WITH THE TIMES. Of course, though, there's a beautiful swimming hole where you can swim, tube, and kayak.

Take the plunge and jump off the giant rock bed into the lukewarm water. Tonkawa Falls is just a short drive and the perfect place to gather with friends and family for fun get-away.
