Every Summer, there is always someone you know, or someone you know who knows someone else, who will throw a party on a party barge out at Lake Travis.

The party barge usually ends up at Devil's Cove where it will dock for hours, and you can swim, drink, and mingle around with other folks who got there in other party barges, or their own private boats, or jetskis. It's like being in bars/clubs, except you're in a body of water.

It's one of the local favorites to hit the lakes, especially since Central Texas is so landlocked and the nearest beach is really not that enticing at all.

Although the "lakes" in Austin really isn't a lake. It's actually parts of the Colorado River which had been damned up. Still, we have fun, even when it can get way too hot outside. Just gotta remember lots and lots and lots of sunblock and water.
