Barton Springs

We have had so much fun exploring Texas. It's such a huge, beautiful state with so much variety.

One of the first adventures we went on was to Barton Springs in Austin.

After a near hour and a half drive, we stopped for some tacos first, we were too hungry! 

We stopped at a place called Cabo Bob's, which, from what I could find, is only in Austin, and served up some of the biggest tacos I have ever had! Very generous portions! 

I've also become pretty obsessed with checking the Snapchat filter for any city we visit. Austin had the cutest! (Snapchat username: adriacavanaugh)

And finally, to Barton Springs! (Again with the adorable Snapchat filter!)

We got there at about 1:30 on a weekday, and the parking lot was packed! Luckily we snagged a spot and had just a short little walk over to the pool. There was a HUGE line of people waiting for admittance. They only have one cashier, and take cash only, $8 a person. Luckily it moved along fairly quickly and we were in line maybe 15 minutes.

Despite the long line and the packed parking, the pool was huge and very spacious, so it didn't feel crowded at all. And it was so pretty! The water really is so blue, and it stays around 68 degrees, so it's perfect for the terrible Texas heat!

I loved the atmosphere there and can't wait to get back to Austin and explore more!

We also made a little vlog about the trip that you can watch below!
