1. Cool off at the Rock’n River Family Aquatic Center. The small water park is perfect for a relaxing day floating down the lazy river, with a few water slides for fun for the kids. It’s located smack dab in Old Settler’s Park, so you can always take a stroll over to one of the several playscapes after your swim.
2. Go for a horse ride at Maverick Horseback Riding. It’s located one mile from Old Settler’s Park. There are pasture rides and trails that go into Brushy Creek, beautiful meadows and some fun farm critters running around the barn.
3. Practice your golf game at Teravista Golf Club, Star Ranch or Forest Creek Golf Club. Spend a nice day relaxing on the green and perfecting your golf game at one of Round Rock’s best golf courses.
4. Old Settler’s Park. The park has space for nearly any sport you can imagine. Cricket, soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, disc golf – they have it all. And when you get tired of playing you can head back to one of the pavilions for rent and cook up some good ‘ole barbecue.
5. Climb on at Boulders Sport Climbing Center. Just because there are no mountains in Austin doesn’t mean that you should miss out on the mountain climbing experience!
6. See the Round Rock itself! Located in the middle of Brushy Creek at the Chisolm Trail Park is the rock that inspired the name of the town. Nearby are several historical markers that tell the story of the Chisolm Trail and how Round Rock came to be.
7. See a game at Dell Diamond. Dell Diamond is home to the Round Rock Express, a minor league baseball team. So buy some peanuts and cracker jacks and head out to see America’s sport at a good ‘ole baseball game.
8. Satisfy your sweet tooth at Round Rock Donuts. The Texas sized Round Rock Donut weighs in at a whopping two pounds of sugary deliciousness.
9. Cruise through downtown Round Rock. Have a burger at Juniors out on the patio while the kids play a claw machine that actually dishes out prizes, or stop into The Louisiana Cafe for some Cajun fair. The candy store is on main street, perfect for dessert. Stop by the Round Rock art center and on your way out, run through the downtown Round Rock splash pad. Pop into “Bless this Nest” around the corner to see some unique antiques, trinkets and doo dads.
