This past weekend after a crazy week at work I decided to tell the family to pile into the car and let's go for a dip to cool off.

Of course, we bypassed the hundreds and pools and water parks and decided to head over to a Texas treasure and favorite cooling off spot year round in Austin. Barton Springs Pool is known as a favorite not only among Austinites but for families all over Central Texas for its SUPER COLD water temperature and proximity to downtown Austin.

I, for one, didn't submerge myself into the frigid waters because I'm a big man baby. I just couldn't handle the cold temps! But what I could handle was the cost for the whole family! Ticket prices depend on rather or not you're an Austin resident but vary from $1 to $8!
