Since it is always hot in Texas in August, take advantage of this tour to cool off in some of the most famous springs in Texas. We’ll head way west to the springs at Balmorhea, coming back through Krause Springs in Spicewood, then Dripping Springs near Austin, and Barton Springs in Austin proper. In Burnet, we’ll splash into the Devil’s Waterhole and finally in Wimberly we’ll enjoy cooling off in Jacob’s Well.
