Bored kids? Head to the Square!
Has the well of summer activities and entertainments for your kids run dry? Head to the Square for history, art, fun, and good food—from a child’s point of view.
Learn something: Take in Hands-on History for kids, put on by the Williamson Museum on the second Saturday of every month from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. August’s theme is “Bat’s Incredible,” where kids will learn all about the Mexican free-tailed bats in Williamson County. History activities are located under a tent on the west side of the courthouse lawn.
Get some grub: You can’t go wrong with a burger and milkshake from Burger University, but then again who can say no to a giant slice of 600 Degrees pizza? You may have to toss a coin.
Have fun: Hang out at All Things Kids. The toy shop is family- and kid-friendly with a Play Zone designed for kids to test out their imaginations and Internet access for mom and dad. Shop for that one of a kind toy or that classic book you remember from your own childhood.
Get wet: Jump out of the heat and into the refreshing Downtown Splash Pad outside of the Georgetown Art Center. Or grab some towels and head down Austin Avenue to Blue Hole for a fun swim.
Sugar rush: You can’t go wrong with a lip-smacking cupcake or a giant cookie from Galaxy Bakery, but if you really want to blow your kid’s mind (and maybe the tooth fairy’s too!) walk down to Sweet Tooth Candy and Café on the corner of Austin Avenue and University. With over 500 types of candies, rows of fun drinks, and an old-fashioned soda fountain, it’s easily every kid’s candy fantasy come true.
