2. Dripping Springs

As its name might tell you, Dripping Springs - or Drippin', to locals - is known for its waterways. Located a half-hour drive from Austin, Drippin' has just about everything you could want from a Texan vacation. Its biggest pull is the Hamilton Pool, a naturally-formed swimming hole that attracts people from all over Texas. It's a great way to escape the stuffy Texan summer heat and an even greater spot to have a picnic. Dripping Springs also has a historic shopping district packed with charming boutiques and bars with live music and good times.
