Top 8 things to do during Spring Break 2017 in Lakeway TX

Lakeway Orthodontics Mar 8, 2017

Spring Break in Lake Travis 2017 is on!

Now that kids are out of school, besides coming to see us, here’s some great ideas to have fun and keep the kids entertained in the Lake Travis area that are fun for kids and don’t break the bank for parents.  At Lakeway Orthodontics we know it’s busy for parents, especially Moms, we are working towards making it easier for patient and parents to enjoy their experience with us.  Enjoy!


1) Get on and in the water!
With the lake as full as we’ve seen in years, it’s a great time to experience the water on a boat.
Whether your group is into having the biggest party on the lake with a custom party pontoon boat from http://www.beachfrontboats.com/ for about $1200 for 4 hours, or rent a smaller boat for you and your family if you’re wanting to spend some time tubing or enjoying the Awesome scenes on the water with daybreak boat rentals http://daybreakboatrentals.com/home.html
Don’t worry if your’e not feeling the Aquatic life style.. there is also tons of lakeside restaurants such as The Oasis http://oasis-austin.com/ the largest outdoor restaurant in Texas, with a beautiful sunset over the water. It’s considered the “Sunset Capitol of Texas,”

2) Austin Aquarium

Kids love this place and there is so much to see!
Even though it will be spring break, Rain is always an expectation, but don’t worry. The Austin Aquarium is something that everyone loves and also doesn’t break the bank! Kids 11 and under are only $6.95, and adults are $11.95 and there’s even packages that include tokens to feed the fish!

3) Graffiti Park
Just off North Lamar and Baylor street at  1100 Baylor St, Austin, TX 78703-4922 , the three story abandoned construction site is an ever changing canvas of graffiti artists. Grab some pics of the kiddos. This one is perfect for a free, outdoor adventure and some of the best photo opportunities.

4) JUMPoline Park
Two locations for the kids to jump out that extra Spring Break energy. Not just for the kids but for the adults too. They even offer a family-fun pack for about $20, that gives up 4 people an hour of jumping.

5) Peter Pan Mini Golf
At the intersection of Barton Springs and North Lamar, this miniature golf course is an Austin icon and never disappoints. There are 2-18 hole courses filled with giant obstacles including the obvious character Peter Pan, a T-Rex, and many more surprises. You can play one course for only $7 or you can play the full 2 courses for $11, and kids 5 and under get 2 dollars off each course.

6) iFly 
Kids and adults can get the thrill of skydiving without ever having to actually leap from an airplane.
For about $260, you can buy a family pack for you and your family that includes 10 flights between 5 people, and 5 free video clips from the session!

7) Hamilton Pool 
Another outdoor waterhole, Hamilton Pool is a great place to take the kids! This pool was formed thousands of years ago, and has a natural 50 ft waterfall that never dries up. Try to get out there early, as there is no reservations made until May, and it could be very crowded on any given day, call 512-264-2740 to get the status of Hamilton pool

8) High Five Bowling and Gaming
Bowling, Laser tag, Video games are all here at High Five Bowling and gaming, located in Lakeway. Here, kids under 18 bowl for free if you sign up for the national kids bowl free program and there are bowling specials for each day of the week, making fun for the whole family!
