Admittedly, some state parks just have trees. But check out what Travis County Texas has to offer.
Hamilton Pool Nature Preserve is an historic swimming hole created by a perfect chain of natural events. Erosion can be beautiful, and this limestone grotto is a stunning example. The ferns and moss add a beautiful touch of fresh green to this picturesque waterfall and canyon.
The Preserve has more to offer than a stunning swimming hole. For birders and nature lovers, there is quite a selection of photo opportunities. The Preserve is also home to the golden-cheeked warbler and many rare wild flowers including wild orchids.
Dripping Springs is right outside Austin, and this stylish vacation home is nestled in the heart of this and other gorgeous natural wonders. Just check out the view from the deck.
Between the private pool and hot tub and the grotto at the nature preserve, your family should get their fill of swimming. Maximize your time outdoors on the swing, on the lounge chairs, or by making dinner on the grill. The view down into the hills below is so lush and green, you won’t want to take your eyes off it.
This home and location will completely immerse you in Texas. From the deer wandering through the back yard to the leather furniture, you’ll be reminded that this is still wild grazing land. The vacation home is smartly decorated with faux fur throw pillows reminiscent of cow hide and plenty of wrought iron on the bed frames and in the kitchen. The stone features of the pool and patio area will remind you of the Wild West roots of this great vacation state.
