Five Ways To Cool Off in Austin

Looking for some ways to stay cool in our great (but super hot) city? As the temperatures continue to rise, your friends at Leif Johnson Ford have compiled a list of five of our favorite ways to cool off in the Austin area!


  • Visit a swimming hole- The Austin area is full of lovely swimming pools and holes to enjoy on a sweaty summer’s day. Beloved Barton Springs, Wimberley’s majestic Blue Hole and Spicewood’s gorgeous Krause Springs are just a few of our favorite options! And if you’re looking for a little history with your swimming, dive into the oldest swimming hole in Austin at Deep Eddy’s!
  • Discover a splash pad – Austin has so many totally free splash pads. Pease Park, Downtown Round Rock, The Triangle and Liz Carpenter Fountain at Butler Park are just a few of the amazing options.
  • Go paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing. Lady Bird is Austin’s favorite, but spots like Brushy Creek Park and Lake Austin also offer these on-the-water excursions!
  • Spend a day at the lake. From dining on Lake Travis to swimming at the beach-like Lake Pflugerville and everywhere in between, the Austin area suffers no shortage of beautiful areas to love. Eat at the Oasis or Shack 512, rent a boat or just dip your toes in the water. You’ll have a blast no matter what you choose!
  • Surf at N-Land Surf Park. Ride the waves or just enjoy a restaurant and brewery with a review. This unique spot has something for everyone to love!

Get in the water and make the most out of every sweat-inducing moment. Summer will be over before you know it, so soak up the sun and every moment while you can!
