Austin is abounding with fabulous entertainment for kids and families! This guide will tell you where you can go for fun in the Austin area and why you should go. The focus of the guide is on affordable and easy entertainment. We personally tested each and every place on the guide by exploring it with our children, and they all got the stamp of approval, to varying degrees. We also included birthday party information for every place that offers party packages, to help you plan that special day.
