What began as an inherent interest of former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson turned into a thriving Austin attraction, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The public botanical garden introduces visitors to the beauty of wildflowers and other native plants and natural landscapes through experience and education. Stroll through the 16 unique gardens, the Ann and O.J. Weber Butterfly Garden, the sprawling South Meadow or relax along the Erma Lowe Hill Country Stream. Knowledgeable docents teach inquisitive ones about the many roles of indigenous plants, as well as conservation techniques including fire ecology and native green roofs. For a more in-depth look at the former First Lady and her husband, visit the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum on the University of Texas at Austin campus. read more about Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

The water in Barton Springs swimming pool hovers around 68 degrees year-round, which means that it feels cool -- even cold -- in the heat of summer. It feels relatively warm in winter, though, and a few rugged souls swim there every morning, regardless of the weather. If you're more into lounging than exercise, there's a part of the massive pool dedicated to floats and floaters. On the hillsides surrounding the pool, you will see a snapshot of Austin culture. There's usually a group of twentysomethings kicking around a hacky-sack ball, a sixtyish man doing yoga, and (kid warning) a woman of indeterminate age without her top. Occasionally, a drum circle forms at the top of the hill. Guitars are almost as common as smart phones. On summer days when the temperature can soar above 100 degrees, this is the only reasonable place to be. read more about Barton Springs Pool
