Wonder World Park, 1000 Prospect Street, San Marcos
Located just a few miles south of Austin, the Wonder World Park is a theme park like none other. Things to see and explore include the Wonder Cave, anti-gravity house, and an Observation Tower that stands 190 feet tall and offers breathtaking views of the valley that surrounds the park. A train ride through the included wildlife park offers an up-close and personal of the animals who live there, and a petting zoo allows your family to get even closer.
Austin Nature & Science Center, 2389 Stratford Drive
This free activity offers an educational and entertaining experience that will be loved by all. Famous for Spider Joe, who discovered a new crab spider species in 2017, the opportunity to explore the natural life is too good to pass up. Giving Mother Nature’s creatures a safe harbor, you and your family can get close to the insects, spiders, and animals that make their home here.
Zilker Theater Productions, 2206 William Barton Drive
The summer season has ended, but if you’re planning on visiting next summer, their rendition of The Little Mermaid promises to be a massive hit! Costing nothing, this outdoor theater offers some of the best Austin family events and is fun for people of all ages!
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, 4801 La Crosse Avenue
