As Central Texas booms and families with children move to the area in droves, many new residents are looking for fun things to do in Dripping Springs with kids. Read on for seven of the many local opportunities for family fun.

Go beer tasting. It may seem counter-intuitive, but one of the many funs things to do in Dripping Springs with kids is visit a brewery, many of which have playscapes and more to keep the little ones entertained and engaged while their parents enjoy a beer or two.

Play mini golf. Mini golf courses in Dripping Springs are a great destination for family fun night. We are partial to our own, especially since we have one of the best courses in Texas. Between the Dream Course and the Challenge Course your family will find plenty of opportunities to play a round or two.

Visit a playscape. Dripping Springs offers several playscapes guaranteed to keep your kids climbing and having fun for an hour or so. At Dreamland, TX, not only is our playscape protected from both the sun and the rain, but it is also conveniently located next to our outdoor bar area, so parents can enjoy an adult beverage while their kiddos burn off some extra energy.

Lawn games. With all the activities going on in Central Texas it is easy to get busy and forget to slow down and reconnect as a family. Spend some enjoying life’s simple pleasures and you – and your child – will feel the stress melt away. Challenge your kids to a round or two of cornhole and take the chance to chat and learn more about what is going on in their lives.

Summer camp. Looking for some summer fun that does not necessarily involve mom or dad? Dreamland offers half-day summer camp during July and August for kids ages 6 to 12. Featuring pickleball, lawn games, crafts and mini-golf – as well as plenty of time at the splash pad, summer camp is a new tradition that is sure to keep your kids active and having fun throughout the summer.

Get in the swim of things: When summer temperatures rise, there’s nothing like plunging into a pool of water to cool off. If you don’t have a pool or your own – or a welcoming neighbor – the Dripping Springs YMCA offers a community friendly alternative.

Learn something new: Learning something new with your older kids provides a great opportunity to create lifelong memories that parents and children alike will cherish. Pickleball, which is one of the fasted growing sports in America, is fun, easy to learn sport that will keep your family active and engaged.
