Why You Should Head to Texas for Family Spring Break 2021

Tired of being cooped up or working from home for the last year? Also trying not to experience any of the events that inspired this list of hilarious tweets about traveling with kids? Then why not head to Wimberley for your big family spring break trip?

March through May is the best time to visit the Texas Hill Country because the scenery is incredible and you don’t have to compete with that fierce Texas heat like you do in summer and fall. That means you, your spouse, and your kids will be able to do all kinds of fun things outside with minimal whining! (We can’t guarantee that last part.)

Pack your bags, your kids, and even the family pet and head out on a grand adventure! Here are some of the best reasons why you should head to Texas for your family spring break.

Turn Your Cabin into a Cool Adventure

Unfortunately, COVID is still messing with travel plans, work and school schedules, and our ability to just find a fun public place or event to break up the days a little bit is limited. How about creating a new world in your private cabin?

Every cabin at Cypress Creek Cottages has a fully functional kitchen, as well as a living area, bedrooms, and a private hot tub. If you want to spend some of your family spring break learning or playing in the comfort of your own cabin, there are a million fun things you can do to make your “home away from home” a little more exciting or exotic:

  • Play some card games or build blanket forts and pillow castles
  • Choose a theme for this spring break and then make food and take part in the activities of your new culture
  • Research some of the history of the area – like Old Baldy Trail – and then set out to spend some time in these unique places
  • Try any one of these road trip activities for kids to fill the in-cabin downtime while Mom and Dad relax in the hot tub.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors – Take a Texas Hill Country Hike

The outdoors are perfect for recharging your batteries after dealing with months of trying to pack work, school, and home into the same space. Grab your family and venture out to one of the best spots for Texas Hill Country hiking.

If the breathtaking views and beautiful weather don’t keep the kids engaged, here are some great tips for hiking with kids. You can even do something creative to track the hike distance – measure the hike in blue whales, school buses, or football fields. 

You can also go Geocaching (it’s like going on a treasure hunt in real life) or download one of these cool hiking apps, many of which do more than just track your progress – they might show you interesting local plant or animal life, or even astrological events in the area.

Lots of Fun Day Trips

There are tons of unique places to visit that are less than a 90-minute drive from your private Cypress Creek Cottages rental in Wimberley! No need to pack the kids in for a long haul because you can find all kinds of things to do in the Texas Hill Country.

Check out one of the best rodeos in Texas or take the kids to see the animals at the Austin Zoo or Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch (which also has some incredible caverns to explore!).

Before your trip, have your kids help pick out some fun things they want to go do or see. This can get them invested and excited about the trip, and creates some anticipation – they’ll look forward to the activities and places they picked out, so they won’t get bored and cranky as easily (fingers crossed!).

Relax After a Long Day on Family Spring Break
