Did you know there’s a tropical island paradise an hour’s drive from Austin?
If you’ve lived in Central Texas for very long, you probably have a list of favorite swimming holes. But here’s one I just discovered and instantly fell in love with — Son’s Island in Seguin.
Picture this: A private, thatched-roof lakeside cabana for you and your friends, complete with a hammock, grill, tables and lounge chairs. You can rent a kayak, a canoe or a paddleboard on site, or enjoy beach volleyball, cornhole or jumbo-size game of Connect Four.
OK, so the water might not be quite as blue as Hawaii, but you’ll still feel far, far away.
Want to stay overnight? There are tents available that come with two queen-size beds, two fans and lanterns.
You can book online at lakeplacidisland.com. Cabanas go fast, so reserve early.
