    Wow, that is truly a bunch of stuff you could do with kids but obviously even without.
    We haven’t been to Austin yet, but let’s see how we plan our 3rd US Road trip – would like to see this place with my own eyes.

      Austin would be a great place to stop on a road trip! It has so much to offer. If you visit, be sure to check out the post on the Cathedral of Junk. Austin is proudly weird and it really falls into that category!

  4. This is a fab post!
    I love the idea of having a craft type activity to link into each sightseeing venture. I will be introducing this idea when travelling with my kids!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Thanks!! It really helps the kids understand more about what they are going to see and it helps them remember! Kids need to visit a subject more than once to really make something a part of them. Thanks for stopping by!

    Didn’t know you could do so many fun things with kids in Austin. I particularly like the fossil-making part 😀 Seems lots of fun!

  6. I didn’t know Austin could be such a fun destination for kids. I’m sure your kids were very excited about seeing all those bats flying! Where exactly is the paddle boarding? That water is gorgeous!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Paddle boarding looks a lot like standing on a surfboard. You balance and then paddle with one long paddle. I think I would last 30 seconds before falling in. LOL!

      • Zoe says:

        Fall off? no way… they are huge. It’s like standing in a row boat. The only thing that makes you fall off is loads of rough water. (or my dog running around on the board with me) lol

    I love Austin and looks like you guys did it all! I love especially that there’s a huge park in the middle of the city. We did get to bike through the park but I wish we had more time there to paddleboard and enjoy it more. Did you get a chance to take your kids to the Hope graffiti wall?

  8. I love Austin! Never went there with kids, but I consider myself a big kid and I guess that counts. Haha. Went hiking, visited the parks and had an amazing time 🙂

  9. Ive never been to Austin but it looks like you’ve got some great ideas. Watching the bats sounds amazing. Your kids are gonna have a fabulous time I’m sure!

  10. I had always heard amazing things about Austin but I didn’t realize there were so many activities to do there! I know these are mostly for kids but I think I’d enjoy a lot of them myself haha – who doesn’t look food truck hopping?

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I love the menus! There are so many to try I’m still working on my list….tough research, you know, but someone has to do it, right? 😉 Austin is great fun. Any place who considers itself ‘Proudly Weird’ would just have to be!! Thanks for stopping by.

  11. My kids are entering the teen years and I think it’s time for them to get excited about college. I think a trip to UT campus is in order cause I’m hoping they stay close to home. Thanks for sharing!
