In: Outdoors

7 Aug 2015

(map) It’s pretty cool to visit a zoo where the animals aren’t the ones in cages, people are! This is actually more like a ranch. Hundreds of animals roam freely over 137 rolling acres dotted with lakes. There are no lions or tigers or bears (in fact, no predatory beasts), but 80 other species

(map) This new museum geared to kids (and the kid in us all) just opened and is already a huge hit.

(map) Kids big and small go nuts for the frozen goodies from this place. It’s not just the 12 fun yogurt flavors like Red Velvet Cake Batter, Root Beer Float and Chocolate Cherry Cordial, it’s the creative aspect. You concoct

(UPDATE: closed) Yes, there’s live music here at this place on Lake Travis, but another kind of live entertainment is even more popular: feeding the ducks and fish. Casual and laid-back, Johnny Fin’s is all about kids – toddlers dance and sway to the music and sometimes even climb onstage. And they all love throwing […]

At Waterloo Ice House, the Big Game is all about little kids. Sure, if Dad actually wants to watch the game, Waterloo has eight TVs inside, and one out on the dog-friendly patio, next to the washer-pitching pits. But the real action takes place inside at halftime, when they’ll announce the winner of Waterloo’s coloring […]
