See the street art
In a city that openly welcomes and even encourages street art, take your minions and go explore! This is a wonderful opportunity to teach them about public art and space, and gives you the opportunity to see some of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods!
FlightHub suggests seeing the “I Love you So Much”, and “Don’t Hate” wall on South Congress Boulevard.
Explore Austin’s Food Scene
There’s nothing quite like Austin’s food scene. With delicious tacos, or burritos, burgers and more, you’re sure to find something for even for the pickiest eater of the group. Fuel up with breakfast burritos from La Cocina de Consuelo, followed by an unforgettable taco lunch at Torchies. If you’re craving family-style barbecue then grab the group and make your way to Freedman’s.
Still can’t find something for your picky eater? FlightHub has just the place in mind to fuel up the kids. Why not try Home slice, arguably one of Austin’s best pizza places. There’s nothing in the world that kids love more than gooey, cheesy pizza!
It’s time to beat the heat!
Exploring Austin in Texas heat can be a little draining, so bring your rug-rats for some cool-off time at Barton Springs. One of Austin’s premiere public parks, spend the day lounging and swimming in the natural spring. With varying depth and a comfortably temperature averaging around 70F, kids of all ages and swimming capabilities can enjoy and play in the spring.
FlightHub recommends respecting the park’s rules in regards to being a bathing-only area, so please note that glass, food, smoking and playing Frisbee is strictly prohibited in the area.
If you’re family aren’t fans of swimming, then visiting one of Austin’s many other parks may be a better alternative. The Greenbelt and Ziller Park offer a variety of activities throughout the day that’ll tire out your kids just in time for their afternoon nap.
If you’re looking for more curated family fun, then FlightHub suggests making your way to the iconic Peter Pan Mini Put. This establishment is BYOB, so both mom and dad can have fun while the kids play!
Get ready for a Bat-Tastic Evening!
As the sun begins to set in Austin, FlightHub wants you to take your brood and welcome the night by watching Austin’s bat colony greet it. Make you way to South Congress Bridge and wait for the little nighttime flyers to awake from their slumber. Peak season for bat watching begins in April and lasts until November.
Remember the Alamo!
Get ready for one of the best cinematic experiences in Austin! Skeptical of bringing your kids to a movie theater? Don’t want the headache of mid-movie snack buying? Don’t worry, the Alamo Draft House has you covered! With in-theater waiting service, order whatever you want from the comfort of your seat. FlightHub recommends their bottomless popcorn and Vanilla milkshakes to satisfy your movie snack cravings on next family vacation.
