Let's face it... it get's really hot in the summer in Austin, Texas. And when the temperature rises that means its time to hit the lake! Luckily you are never far from water and swimming options in Austin and one of the largest watering holes the are has to offer is Lake Travis.
It never fails that every summer someone is going to throw a party on a multilevel party-barge complete with kegs and margarita machines. And yes, there is a waterside on the top of the barge and they'll let you jump off the top as well because I assure you that either or both will sound good after a day drinking on Lake Travis!
Never forget your swimming suit on a summer trip to Austin, but in the event you forget there is also a nude beach called Hippie Hollow for those that prefer tanning in their birthday suits.
