This past weekend we headed over to Austin and San Antonio for a fantastic two days of activities; it’s spring break!
Our itenerary was filled with fun and food, two of our families favorite things, like cave tours, cruising around on segways and zip lining.
Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio, Tx We took the Discovery Tour, the Passages was sold out when we got there, it was really cool to listen to the kids [guides] explain the different geological forms and how the caves were made; it was VERY fun and educational. It ws really steep and tight in some areas that we went through and the natural spring waters flow freely from the roof onto the floors, I would not recommend this for families requiring walking assistance or toting babies in strollers.
Gliding Revolution, Austin, Tx Holy Cow, have you done a segway tour yet? It is pretty awesome, however, it took me the longest to get used to the machine. We toured Austin while SxSW and the Girl Scouts 100 year celebration was happening, so we were right in the middle of hundreds of big and little people at many points; we survived. Our tour guide was borderline amazing, you have to give them a call and take a tour if you are EVER in Austin!
Cypress Valley Canopy Tours, Spicewood, Tx This place is pretty pricey, but C loved it SO much, so it was definitely worth the dollars to create memories with her. Our tour guides Bailey and Eric were super cool and knew a lot about the cypress trees we were flying through. There were about 6 zip lines and two sky bridges to cross, the tour took almost two hours. They have a pond to swim in afterwards if you desire, picnic tables, tether ball and a relaxing hammock. They book relatively small groups so all this is available with little interruption to your families plans.
Luling Barbque, Luling, Tx Yum, C and I had the chopped beef sandwich and B had the sliced beef sandwich, I’d say these are pretty much their best items on the menu because they were delicious. Umm, their sweet tea just about had me hopped up for the rest of the day, that’s good tea right there.
Ritas on the River, San Antonio, Tx Cold drinks, hot queso, tasty mexican food and PLENTY of people watching, need I say more?
Milto’s Medeterranian Cafe, Austin, Tx Talk about good pizza, salad and service! I had a Greek salad and Spanikopita served with a cool tjatzeekee sauce, if you like spinach, cheese and egg, you will love this dish. My two compadres, however, had cheese pizza and salad… live a little people ;) Our friends from Gliding Revolution suggested we try this place out, so thanks for the love GR, much appreciated!
What did your Spring Break 2012 look like? Were you able to squeeze in a moment of fun and relaxation?
