The Best Swimming Spots Near San Antonio to Visit This Summer


There's no getting around the summer heat in San Antonio, but hopefully these 5 great spots will bring you some relief. Cool down and stay close to home at one (or all) of these swimming destinations.

Wimberley Blue Hole 

100 Blue Hole Rd, Wimberley, TX, (512) 660-9111

The Wimberley Blue Hole is only an hour away and just one of the cool things to visit at the Blue Hole Regional Park. With basketball courts and hiking trails, the park is the perfect place to reconnect with nature this summer. The swimming hole has a rope swing and the cool waters are a relief for July’s hottest days. In 2005, this area was purchased by the city of Wimberly to prevent from overcrowding the natural preserve, allowing for the unique spot to continue to flourish ever since.
