Children will enjoy walking through the labyrinth of caves in Longhorn Cavern State Park. Hollowed out by water, the series of caverns offers hidden rooms, filled with calcite crystals, to explore.

At the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, the main attraction is the pink granite dome rock formation. At 425 feet above the ground, it is the largest rock formation of its kind in the United States. Children race to the top of the formation overlooking the vast Texas landscape.

The Dinosaur Park brings you back to prehistoric times with 16 life-size dinosaur replicas including an 85-foot-long Brachiosaurus. The dinosaur statues are scattered throughout the park and include a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Iguanodon and a Velociraptor. Kids love the park-wide scavenger hunt, searching for clues hidden in the trees and marshland. Children also have the opportunity to become their own archaeologists and dig up fossils beneath the sand, discovering a dinosaur of their own.

Another favorite for families, the Austin Zoo, is home to nearly 300 animals including lions, tigers, jaguars, black bears and countless species of birds, reptiles and monkeys. Kids can walk around for an entire afternoon without seeing the same animal. Many chidlren enjoy the zoo every day, and sometimes doing what other kids do every day can be a wish too. With your help we can make any wish, large or small, possible.

In the summertime, the Austin Children's Museum is a great place to enjoy the air conditioning and keep children entertained. They can sing on stage while being broadcast on TV monitors throughout the museum, or serve a family dinner in the pretend museum restaurant. Also, children can cause controlled destruction in the "Funstruction Zone" where they can learn how to construct and ultimately demolish buildings.

Austin's Park and Pizza is full of rides and activities. Kids can race against the clock on the go-kart track or test their skills on the mini-golf course and batting cages. For the more adventurous types there is an Aqua-wall: kids scale a rock wall that has cool mist wafting down from the peak adding a refreshing yet challenging element to this climbing endeavor. Inside there is an all-you-can-eat buffet with pizza, pasta, salad and dessert bar.
