Barton Springs Pool, ATX’s outdoor gem, is a surefire swell time on almost any day—even the cold ones! (It’s true: the year-round average 68-degree water actually feels warmer when it’s brisk out). But for a purer Austinite experience, head to this Zilker Park-adjacent swim spot on the night of each month’s first full moon. Our advice: arrive early (no later than 8:30pm)—because of overcrowding in the past, the city now limits the capacity to 750 people at $3 a pop. If you’ve ever wanted to channel your inner wolf and howl at the top of your lungs without fear of judgment, this lunar party’s for you!
