Austin Indoor Activities


Sometimes you just need an escape from your house and the hot (or cold) outdoors.  Here’s a map and list of indoor activity places that you might find helpful.  I’ve separated by those within a 25-minute or so drive from Four Points and those outside of the toddler-friendly drive zone.  As in all of my lists, let me know at if I’m missing any places you love.

Along with added descriptions and photos, I’ll be updating with links to blog posts about our visits to and experiences with these places.  Stay tuned!



Greater Four Points Area


Art Amore

Austin Aquarium

Catch Air

Champions Gymnastics (Lake Travis or Westlake)

Crenshaw’s Gymnastics

Emler Swim School – Anderson Mill

Gymboree Play & Music

Heartsong Music

High 5

Hop N Happy

Jump Street

Little Gym

Parker just started taking classes at the Lakeline location.  In the first session, she had a blast running around with other kids her age.  I also wrote a post all about our experiences with the Lakeline Little Gym.

Little Land Play Gym

Little Land looks incredible for young children plus it’s really close (near the 620 and 183 interchange).  The cost to visit is a bit steep, but I might change my opinion after stopping by with the kids soon.

Main Event

Tumble Town

Waterloo Swimming


Out of Bounds (A short drive away)

Hoppin’ House (S. Lamar)

Jump! Gymnastics North Central (183 and Burnet)

McKenna Children’s Museum (New Braunfels) – We LOVE this place.  It’s definitely geared towards younger children and a long drive, but it was a fun day trip for us last summer.

Pump It Up (Anderson and 183)

Rolly Pollies (Bee Cave)

Toybrary (Brentwood) – This great community resource not only allows you to rent toys, but they also offer a variety of activities including yoga classes for preschoolers!
