This day trip takes anglers, swimmers, and boaters to the numerous parks found on the southern reaches of Lake Travis, including: Hamilton Pool Preserve, Narrows Recreation Area, Grelle Recreation Area, Muleshoe Recreation Area, Krause Springs, and Spicewood Vineyard.
Also part of this day trip is the small community of Bee Cave, which is quickly growing as Austin expands westward toward the Hill Country. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Austin. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
