Last month we showcased a variety of things to do and see on an adult “Stay-cation” in Austin. With Spring Break right around the corner, we thought we’d send along some of our favorite things to do with our kids on vacation right here in Austin.
Through a variety of resources and chats with the neighbors within our apartment community in Austin, we’ve created this short list to fill the forthcoming long hours of daytime fun.
Fly Me to the Moon, Sort Of For an experience you and your kids will never forget, make plans to spend a day at IFly Indoor Skydiving for an adventure of a lifetime. According to their website, participants “will experience the feeling of a free fall as one floats on a smooth cushion of air. There’s no parachute, no jumping, and nothing attaching you to planet Earth?” It’s super fun, super safe and a super cool thing to do this Spring Break.
Take Me Out to The Ballgame! Although the official baseball season is around the corner, you can still enjoy all the family fun that wraps around America’s favorite pastime. Head on over to the University of Texas to root for the home team. For a complete schedule, click here.
Zip on Over to Zipline Lake Travis! Noted by Trip Advisor as “the best adventure in Austin,” Zipline Lake Travis offers a three-hour adventure that includes launching over a cliff that is 200 stories high and zipping over 2,800 feet across Lake Travis. And that’s just the beginning of this ‘must-do’ this year.
Bad Weather? Head to the Bullock Museum. Get to know your home state all on one day at this family-favorite get away. From family-fun programs to one-of-a-kind-artifacts, families can enjoy a full day of quality time exploring the story of Texas through the exhibits, activities, and achieves that line the hallways and walkways of the Bullock Museum.
Everyone Loves a Day at the Zoo! With over 300 animals representing more than 100 species, the Austin Zoo is a full day adventure for kids of all ages.

Think About a Day at the “Thinkery” Here’s a great place to keep your kid’s brains alive and active during Spring Break. Known as an “evolution” of Austin’s Children’s Museum, the Thinkery is a place where “science and families play side by side.” Simply said: The Thinkery offers an environment is wrapped with interactive educational exhibit galleries that were inspired and created by the staff and change on a rotating basis, so every visit is unique.
