Go ahead and bring your baby to Austin, TX !

Austin, TX is a fabulous place. It’s a family-friendly town with a great vibe. If you ever get the opportunity to visit without kids – do it, but stay out of trouble!

    toddlers and food trucks? really? Except the closed children’s museums and Zilker it’s lists of what parents like they can drag kids too
