August is upon us which means temperatures soar. I will never cease to be amazed by those who complain about the heat...it's summer in Texas! What do they expect? Fortunately, in Austin we have Barton Springs, a three acre, spring fed pool within minutes of downtown. The 68 degree water offers relief from the heat and invigorates you as well. Speaking from experience, morning swims before 9:00 are ideal because not only will you beat the crowd, but your body will stay cool for a few hours! In the meantime, we've chosen some sizzling properties for your consideration.
