Are you looking for staycation opportunities during Spring break this year? Austin has you covered.
Day 1: Movie Theater Monday
Check out a movie and bring the kids out for lunch. Catch a matinee to save some money and instead of lunch you could just grab a quick treat instead! This little outing is a great way to ease into Spring break.
Day 2: Explore Austin
Austin has so much to offer and tons of fun for the whole family.
- SXSW – Free events abound. Grab your free guest pass now!
- Central Market on North Lamar is a great place to catch free music and enjoy some food while watching the kiddos play.
- The Contemporary will host a family-friendly open house, including some art to take home on March 10th.
- If the weather doesn’t cooperate you can enjoy a ton of indoor activities, including something as simple as heading to Cabela’s in Buda or Bass Pro Shops in Round Rock for giant aquariums of fish! Catch the feeding frenzy every Saturday & Sunday at 1pm.
Day 3: Imagination Wednesday
There are so many museums around us that we take for granted every day. Plan a trip to some of your favorites.
Don’t forget to pack some snacks!
Day 4: Great Outdoors Thursday
Get outside and breathe in the fresh air. Free Fun in Austin has a great list of Outdoor spots. Don’t forget to pack the picnic. Put together some ham and cream cheese bagels (keep better than traditional sandwiches with mayo), cut-up fruit, and maybe some special cookies for a treat after burning all that energy being outside! Plus, these are things you can have your kiddos help you make, which adds to all the fun!
Day 5: Playground Tour
Pick your favorite playground and go have some fun! No sitting on the bench, mom. Get in there with the kids.
6. Scavenger Hunt
Are We There Yet Mom has a great scavenger hunt. Print out the prompts and have some fun. This is especially great for the teens in your life.
As you count down the days to Spring break, you can get excited about all these possibilities. What is going to make your Spring break list?
