Hamilton Pool Preserve

There’s no need to go out of state to enjoy the beauty of majestic waterfalls and beautiful swimming holes tucked away in the majesty of nature, such as Hamilton Pool Preserve, just an hour-and-a-half drive south of Killeen.

Yosemite Falls in California is considered one of the most famous — and tallest — waterfalls in the United States, and New York State’s Niagara Falls is a worldwide tourist attraction that draws as many as 13 million visitors a year.

Both those majestic landmarks make a fine addition to any bucket list of must-see vacation venues, but right here in the great state of Texas there are more than a dozen less-well-known but beautiful waterfalls that could, and maybe should, earn a prime spot on a list of possible weekend getaways.
