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.

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!!!

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.

Piranha Austin Boat Rentals

Reviewed By TheBearcat885 - Austin, Texas

First of all, their website allows you to check the availability of boats and reserve them online. No need to even pick up the phone. Super easy! In this age of the internets, it's surprising no one else lets you do this. Online-friendly and reasonably priced, check.

The marina is a bit secluded, with a private feel to it. We did not have to fight any crowds to get to the dock. Our captain was on time and had our boat ready to go by the time we arrived. He also helped us load the coolers and explained the lay of the land. Professionalism, check.

The boat itself was almost immaculately clean. You can tell they take time taking care of their fleet. No mold, mildew, nothing. We took a bigger pontoon boat out, and it was quite roomy, with plush seats. We put the top cover up to provide some much needed shade on a hot day. Comfort, cleanliness, check.

Our captain took us all over the lake! We didn't really know where we could even go, but he told us all about different destinations you can explore! Ended up cruising around Hippy Hollow, Stars (sp?) island, and finally to Devils Cove, which was a complete zoo. The rest of the trip is a little hazy. All in all, everyone had a really good time on the water. Fun day on the lake, check!

You can't go wrong with these guys. We'll be back to Piranha for sure.

Saint Margaret Mary Catholic Church

Reviewed By EMU_11 - Sunman, IN

We were traveling in the area and looking for a Catholic Church for Sunday mass. We found several but picked this one based on a 10:30 Mass time which worked for us. This is a huge church with plenty of parking in the back. The choir includes a guitar, flute, and violin. The congregation seemed to be a good ethnic mix and also good for all ages. The priest was young and a very good speaker. There were restrooms on the way out on the left side of the building(facing the altar). We would definitely attend Mass here again if we are in the area.
