Blue Hole Park
The other, but certainly not lesser, Blue Hole sits along the South Fork of the San Gabriel River in Georgetown, about a half-hour north of the city. The lagoon features beautiful limestone bluffs to admire, along with picnic tables, restrooms, and plenty of space to splash around. The park is open from 5 am to 10 pm daily, and it’s easily accessible from the San Gabriel River Trails. Best of all, there’s no fee to get in, there’s free parking at the corner of 3rd Street and Rock Street, and you can easily find the entrance behind El Monumento Restaurant.
Know before you go: As tempting as it might be, jumping from the cliffs is not allowed. Also, while free parking is available, spots are known to fill up fast, so plan accordingly.
Where to eat/drink: Georgetown has an awesome downtown area, and you won’t struggle to find a place to grab some food and a beer after your swim. Downtown is only five blocks from Blue Hole, where you’ll find local favorites like Blue Corn Harvest and Dos Salsas.
