Fountains at the University of Texas, in Austin.

University Campus in Austin Texas boasts some very cool fountains. Most are in the immediate area of the UT tower, but the most relaxing is the one by LBJ library. At the library, you can sit on the grass of a gentle sloping hill and soak in the view of the rhythmic water. At sunset, the lights kick on and the vibe is perfect for an evening picnic.

Closer to the tower, UT has a few fountains along the central square.  The Littlefield fountain, on the southern side, is one of the more ornate and fantastic.  On the east side, a circular and simple design. If you time your visit during football season, you might catch a glimpse of the tower glowing orange just after a victorious home game.
