Austinites take their summering very seriously, and with good reason: students have minimal responsibilities and practically everyone's got a green park, swimming hole or easily infiltrated apartment pool on their daily radar.

Here, then, is Eater Austin's map of our favorite summertime hang-outs, from way out west at Lake Travis to one killer downtown happy hour. Don't see your favorite steamy spot on the list? Leave a tip in the comments or e-mail us with suggestions.
