Fun Indoor Family Activities in the Austin Area

Mar 1, 2024

Is your family searching for fun indoor things to do this weekend in the Austin area? 

Check out this list from Tribeza, Austin's leading locally-owned arts and culture magazine and online community.

Go underground at Inner Space Cavern

Take a trip to the ’burbs for this natural wonder. Hidden for over 10,000 years, Inner Space Cavern is one of the best-preserved caves in Texas and has been opened to the public since 1966. The amazing cave has beautiful formations, large rooms, prehistoric animal bones, and, even better, it remains a constant 72 degrees.

Have a reel good time at Paramount Theatre

It’s hard not to feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you walk into the over-a-century-old Paramount Theatre where magician Harry Houdini once performed. Grab a popcorn and head to the balcony to catch an old-timey (or modern) classic film.

Strike out at Bull & Bowl

What do you get when you combine duckpin bowling, billiards, private karaoke, shuffleboard, arcade games and even a mechanical bull? The answer is Bull & Bowl. For those not already in the know, duck pin bowling is played similarly to the “Big Lebowski’’ game we all know and love, except you get three rolls, the balls and pins are smaller and the lane is shorter. Better yet: you don’t have to rent shoes, which makes it already significantly less disgusting and more fun.

Get lit at the Central Library

Not only is the downtown Austin Public Library simply stunning, there’s also the rooftop views, first floor art gallery, 5th floor Digital Maker Space, but there are also books here. That’s right, books. What more do you need to while away the day?

Reach the top at Austin Bouldering Project

Whether you’re an expert climber or a newbie, the Austin Bouldering Project is the perfect place to soar to new heights without having to actually be dangling off a cliff out in the Texas sun. With a second location off Westgate, it’s now easier than ever for South Austinites to get their climbing fix. In addition to different climbing options, there are fitness classes, yoga, weights and even walls specially designed for kids.
