Best Swimming Spot

Barton Springs Pool

What's blue and green and loved all over, and wins this category every year? Barton Springs o'course. The shallows, the lounging mommy and daddy rocks, the springboard... what better way to live the Austin Life? Try out some of the other contenders, that's how! Deep Eddy took a solid second, Hamilton Pool placed third, and most of the city's neighborhood pools got at least a mention.
