H-E-B Center

Reviewed By HouMSW - Elgin, Texas

Our performance of Cirque du Soleil was evidently sold out, which created lines for everything and crowds at the stairs. Had there been an emergency, we could not have exited quickly. Also the stairs are steeply raked, great for sightlines but no so great for older people trying to navigate the stairs. Seats and legroom were on a par with the cheap seats in airplanes. Not a very comfortable venue.

Awesome guides! Caroline was hysterical!!! But she never forget safety during her comedy, and was good about paying attention to us. Bree, also hysterical! We had a blast! Office staff Danielle and Blake? (I think) very friendly and great at answering our questions, making us a priority. Well worth the price, awesome adventure for a special occasion or just a fun day out! Wear good walking/hiking shoes...some of it is real exercise! But gorgeous scenery for hiking!

We reserved Sail Austin Charters for my 50th birthday celebration. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day to sail Lake Travis! There were 11 of us on the boat and we had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the water. Captain Tim was very safety conscientious and communicated clearly the boat rules which made all of us feel very safe and secure! He had great play lists and was very accommodating for the food and drinks we brought on board. We are definitely doing this again.

Georgetown Palace Theatre

Reviewed By Merblyn - Pflugerville, Tx

Attended Production of You can't do that Dan Moody in the Court house. I was one of the unfortunates that had to sit in the balcony. Totally unacceptable. The safety railing cuts off the actors faces, so you only see their legs, unless you slouch down in your seat & peer between the rails. Sound was also bad up there. I suggest that tickets only be sold for downstairs, as upstairs setting at $30.00 a ticket is a rip off. I also suggest that it is made clear on their website that balcony seating is mostly obstructed. Otherwise, it's a great historical play & would be enjoyable if you could see it.

Thirsty Mule Winery & Vineyard

The Thirsty Mule Winery is located inside a hillside. The original owner of the property dug out a hillside and poured a concrete structure and covered it back up. The tasting bar is 4' under the earth. We produce all our wines on premises with a vineyard coming late 2015. We currently grow 5 acres in Rockdale Texas. Come out and enjoy our 8 acres with a running creek thru the property.

Reviewed By MangaMan - Abilene, TX

Texas wines can stray significantly from their label (cabs a little too sweet, for example) so expect wines that don't taste like you expect. We were impressed enough that we joined the wine club even though we live 2.5 hours away. It's a pleasant place to do a little shopping and have a wine tasting. We are headed back there later today.

Veteran's Memorial Park

Reviewed By grandmalois2015 - Cedar Park, Texas

The Veteran's Memorial Park is beautiful and amazing. Cedar Park and Veterans in our area did this park very well . They made it a place for families to play and to see the importance we place on our Veterans. The park, especially the area in the middle where the big monument is, is totally handicap friendly so that elderly veterans and their families can walk around the monuments!!! I was amazed at how great that is. The monument and flag is on higher ground and the wide concrete walkway spirals around and up to the monument so that a person can see all sides and never have to get out of their wheelchair! The bricks have names of Veterans from our area whose families donated to the park by donating bricks. A new Monument to Gold Star Families has just been finished and is on the way to the big monument on the hill. All of them are connected by walkways.
The rest of the park is also amazing and very family friendly. There is a pool, a dog park, and a great performing area where people can sit to be part of an audience and look down at the stage area. There are walking/running paths that have beautiful trees. There are Picnic tables, etc. and good parking.
I love this place and have told many people about it. We are blessed that it was done so beautifully in Cedar Park, Texas!

Cedar Rock Railroad

The Cedar Rock Railroad is part of a full train-themed amusement play space in the SW Williamson County Park. The railroad is a 1/4-scale train that takes passengers of all ages on a 15-minute, 1.3 Mile ride through the natural areas of the park. The Shady Oak Junction (where the train departs) has a train playscape, a kid-powered crank car ride for kids 3+, reservable picnic tables, a depot selling snacks and cold drinks, and, coming soon, a train-themed miniature golf course too!

Reviewed By Bruce W - Leander, Texas

We have been to Cedar Rock Railroad at least three times with our granddaughters. We enjoy it immensely and recommend it. The train makes a nice circle around the area - with some history and science thrown in.

Our granddaughters might even enjoy the miniature city at Cedar Rock Railroad as much as the train and love to climb on the wooden "train". We will be back!!!

Inner Space Cavern

Reviewed By Carol B - Tolland, Connecticut, United States

This is a perfect destination when traveling in the Austin and Round Rock area. Even locals should go. Perfect for families with good walkways and lighting through the caverns and a play and picnic area with live animals outside. The caverns are beautiful and very different from the caves on the East Coast I've been to. The tours have three levels. We went on the first with included an hour and 1/2 fairly easy walk. Some hills coming out so minimal health and energy needed. Enough lighting not to be scary for young kids. Even well traveled people like my husband and myself were in awe of the beauty of the limestone formations. They guide was knowledgeable and patient for picture takers.
There were also two other levels of tours, one with flashlights in smaller spaces and another 3 - 4 hour exploration tour.
Fantastic and worth going. Also worth the entrance fee.

Brushy Creek Lake Park

Reviewed By Tony T

Brushy Creek Lake Park one of about 3 stops and about half way point on the Brushy Creek Regional trail that starts on US 183 by the YMCA and goes about 6.75 miles east. It has water fountains, restrooms and a kiddie water spray (something). There lots of park benches and parking. So, if you start at the YMCA and go to Trail End and back, it will be about 13.5 miles.
