3. Hamilton Pool Preserve, Texas

The Hamilton Pool Preserve was created thousands of years ago when the dome of an underground river collapsed, and today, the pool creates 50 ft tall waterfall. Before, only 5 people were about to access this hidden gem due to the difficulty of getting transportation in there, but it’s slowly becoming a tourist attraction. That’s why you need to quickly get on there since the number of people is still limited, and enjoy a great summer/spring vacation ever!
