1. Spend the day…yes the entire day…at the Zilker Metropolitan Park – Recently named a “Lone Star Legacy”, this is a wonderful park with activities for every age group. Play on the Playscape, hike the many trials, take a dip in the 68-degrees Barton Springs Pool, go kayaking & canoeing on Town Lake, and ride the miniature train, the Zilker Zepher. Pack a picnic and enjoy this beautiful park!
2. Be inspired by the color at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center – There is tons of fun for the family at the Little House and Butterfly Garden, but the biggest attraction right now in the spring will be the blooming wildflowers! What a site to see!
3. There are tons of great trails around Austin, but none have a view at the top like Mt. Bonnell – The rewarding hike offers a fantastic vantage point for views of Lake Austin, Austin, and the surrounding hills. It’s even a registered Historic Landmark!
4. If your looking for a longer hike, check out the falls at the McKinney Falls State Park – take a gorgeous hike around both falls or even venture out and camp overnight!
