How to Get to Austin
Getting to Austin is an easy jaunt by plane, landing at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The airport is only about 20 to 30 minutes away from the main hustle and bustle of the city. You’ll know you’ve arrived once you see the iconic cityscape of high-rises towering over Lady Bird Lake.
Things to Do in Austin for Families
Austin is undeniably the most eclectic city in Texas. Famous for its vibrant live music and art scene, Austin is also popular for its natural beauty found within the city. There’s always something for families to enjoy, from scenic picnics at Zilker Park to watching the bats fly across the sunset over Congress Avenue Bridge.
Families with small children will love Thinkery, Austin’s premier children’s museum with interactive exhibits for hands-on learning and exploration. Each section is laid out in themes and challenges skills with a mix of science, art, and critical thinking.
With nearly year-round gorgeous weather, Austin is best explored outdoors. Head to Zilker Park and spread out on its vast green lawns, stretching down to the waterways of downtown Austin. Put on your bathing suit and dip into the cool waters of Barton Springs on a hot summer’s day or paddle a kayak rental down Lady Bird Lake. Young families must take a trip on the Zilker Zephyr Miniature Train, circling around Zilker Park. For more active families, hop on a bike rental and explore the water’s edge of downtown Austin on Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake.
Where to Eat in Austin
Austin is also home to a sensational food scene. You’ll spot a myriad of food trucks parked along Austin’s main hubs, offering everything from hearty breakfast tacos to Greek gyros. No trip to Austin is complete without tucking into a feast of Texas barbecue, and Lambert’s is the local go-to for savory melt-in-your-mouth brisket and ribs that positively fall off the bone.
Get your fix of Mexican food at Guero’s Taco Bar, where visitors come for the sizzling plates of tacos and fajitas and stay for the live music on the outdoor patio. Enjoy breakfast at Kerbey Lane Café, an Austin staple, for home-cooked comfort of classic breakfast diner fare.
