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.
