Now that June is finally here, it’s time to start planning your summer adventures with the family! Here at Austin Kids Retreat, we know how much of a challenge it can be to find events suitable for all ages. Think of this latest blog post as your guide to summer in Austin (source: Do512 Family).

Rock’N River Water Park

It’s easy to see what makes this one of the most popular water parks in the Austin area. Rock’N River Water Park features a giant play area, lazy river, rock climbing wall, and three slides. Guests can save money by bringing their own food and drinks for the day. Not a fan of the huge midday crowd? Then stop by Rock’N River Water Park from 5-7 p.m. for half-price twilight hours.

Monster Mini Golf

No summer in Austin is complete without at least one trip to Monster Mini Golf. This indoor play center has it all, from glow-in-the-dark mini golf and laser tag to themed party rooms and an arcade. Don’t worry if you have little ones — the atmosphere is more fun and quirky than dark and frightening.

Austin Nature and Science Center

Who says you can’t incorporate learning into your child’s summer? The Austin Nature and Science Center provides an opportunity for your son or daughter to see live animals, go on a nature walk, and discover science in a fun, interactive way. Don’t be surprised if your child wants to turn this trip into a summer tradition.

Movies in the Park

Austin Parks Foundation’s Movies in the Park is back for another summer! Make your way to neighborhood parks for showings of family favorites such as Clueless, Angels in the Outfield, Space Jam, Freaky Friday, and others. If you’re looking for free entertainment this summer, Moves in the Park has to be at the top of your list!

Amy’s Ice Creams

As we write this post, it’s a scorching 92 degrees in Austin, with temperatures expected to reach triple digits over the weekend. So how can you and your family beat the heat this summer while still having a good time? We suggest making frequent trips to Amy’s Ice Creams. Stop by any of the locations around town and enjoy a cold treat with the people you love. Ice cream and summer — they go hand in hand.
