It's that time of year when the heat plateaus into constant saunalike temperatures, and the best we can do is submerge ourselves in liquid, inside and out. Neighborhood pools and Barton Springs guarantee a nice quench for thirsty bodies any day of the week, but Texas summers also mean it's road trip season. There's a handful of natural swimming holes between Wimberley and Spicewood, which nicely align with the blossoming craft food and beverage scene west of Austin. The Hill Country is buzzing with restaurants, breweries, and distilleries that are becoming destinations of their own. Pack your floats, sunscreen, and swim shoes, but leave the cooler at home – the tastiest indulgences are already there.
