When you bring the whole family to visit us here in Austin this coming fall break, you’d better be prepared for a whirlwind of family fun. This city is a great place to enjoy a vacation as a family unit because we have something here for everyone to enjoy! Here are some helpful suggestions to experience Austin fall activities:
The Silver Grill Cafe is one of our favorite places to go out and eat as a family. The service is great, the atmosphere is friendly and local, and the food is to die for. Try the Hot Turkey & Swiss Sandwich, or the Key Largo Chicken Salad, or maybe the Vaquero Borracho, a gourmet Mexican-style burger. Your kids will probably love the cheesecake the most! They’ll also love Ski Shores Cafe, which sits right at the edge of the Colorado River and provides an amazing view while you eat of the waterfront and all the boats as they pass by.
Take the kids to Austin Zoo and enjoy the fall weather while exploring the different exhibits housing over 300 rescued animals. There’s even a scenic train ride! Head over to Top Golf if your kids are a little older; here you can dine and play golf together at the same time at a multi-level golf course with an awesome view. Check out McKinney Falls State Park for some outdoor Austin fall activities like hiking, fishing, and biking. There are even events that take place there sometimes (like guided hikes) so take a look at the calendar before your trip!
Have a picnic at the Barton Creek Greenbelt or spend some time during the day at Zilker Metropolitan Park. This park has a relaxing Japanese garden where you can have a picnic or just grab a seat and enjoy the lovely foliage for a while between these Austin fall activities. There’s also a theatre here, a sculpture garden, and places for the kids to play! If you really want to go all out, rent a canoe, some kayaks, or stand-up paddleboards and head out onto the gentle waters of the river. Another great place to enjoy some water activity is the Barton Springs Municipal Pool, fed by natural spring waters.
