McKinney Falls State Park

This past Saturday was an adventure day! My boyfriend and I and some of our friends packed our bags for the day and headed out to a park in Austin, Texas named Mckinney Falls State Park. One of the many things I love about mine and my boyfriends relationship is that we love nature, exploring, and adventuring and now that summer is here, we are going to try to go somewhere new every other Saturday of the summer. McKinney Falls was one of the top places we wanted to go see this summer, so needless to say we were very excited!

The Falls

This park is located a little on the outskirts of Austin and it is absolutely breathtaking! There are two different places with falls all in driving distance of each other. There are the “Little Falls” and the “big Falls” The little falls are good for children because its not too deep and the big falls are awesome for adults because you are able to jump off the rocks. The whole park is family friendly and there is even a trail for walking and biking. I definitely want to go back when we have a chance to do the trail and see the scenic view of Austin. Overall I had an amazing time jumping into the water and just not having a care in the world for at least one day! I recommend anybody who lives in Texas to visit this park and even those who don’t live in Texas but want to visit one day. Texas is filled with so many beautiful places and natural areas and that’s one of the things I love about living here!

More adventures to come soon that I will share with you all!
