Things to Do Over Holiday Break in Round Rock
Hike the Brushy Creek Trail
There are so many new parts to this trail that it would take a while to explore it all! We have such nice winter days that you can pick a sunny one and take a nice walk!

Bowling at Bass Pro Shops
Take the kids bowling at Uncle Bucks’ Fishbowl and wander the store! If you are there on a Saturday or Sunday, make sure to check out the fish feeding at 1PM! More details here.
Ride the Cedar Rock Railroad
When my kids were younger, this was a favorite thing of theirs. It’s a wonderful ride on a miniature train around the Southeast Regional Williamson County Park. Follow them on Facebook to know their hours.
Take the older kids to the fun escape room we have in town! Escapology offers 5 different themed rooms to work your way out of. And it’s LOTS of fun for the whole family! More details here.
Check out Books from the Library
It seems pretty basic but my 11 year old & I have developed a fondness for a weekly visit to the library. We have both discovered some new authors during the pandemic that has really strengthened our love of reading.
Find a Little Free Library
Another fun way to find books is to trade books at a Little Free Library. We have LOTS of them all over Round Rock, so have your kids grab a stack of books they no longer want to read and go find some new ones! Click here for locations.
Make your own Soda
Head to downtown Round Rock and find the adorable vintage candy shop, 3 Star Candy. You can make your own flavored soda pop!
Downtowner Art Gallery
Check out the current exhibit at the Downtowner Art Gallery in Downtown Round Rock. They also have a “Outdoor Art Scavenger Hunt” that you can participate in with the kids!
Art Camps at Cordovan Art School
Cordovan Art School has several different kinds of art camps & classes available over the holiday break. More details here.
Water Park Fun at Kalahari Resort
The newly opened Kalahari Resort has the world’s largest indoor water park so this break would be a great time to check it out. We posted great deals on our website last week for day passes too!
Worth the Drive: Things to Do Over Holiday Break
Here are a few fun things to do around Central Texas that we feel are worth the drive.
Hike to the top of Enchanted Rock
One of our favorite things to do on a wintry sunny day is to get outdoors and hike. And the hike we all enjoy the most as a family is to the top of Enchanted Rock. It may require a bit of planning (make sure you get there early to get in the park) and it will make you out of breath, but the view & the sense of accomplishment is spectacular. More details here.
Mural Hunt in Austin
We love to find murals in Austin. We used to have a link dedicated to murals, but they move and change so much, that it was hard to keep up. Our suggestion is to google murals in Austin and go exploring! Enjoy breakfast at Snooze Eatery before you go or Home Slice Pizza for lunch.
Dart Em Up
Kids love to battle it our in a nerf gun war and parents love that they don’t have to clean up the mess! Check out this indoor battle ground. More details here.
Hill Country Science Mill
One of our families’ favorite hands-on museums is out in Johnson City. The Hill Country Science Mill has many great exhibits that will take hours to full see. While in Johnson City, you can check out the Lyndon B. Johnson Boyhood home, which is right next door. More details here.
