Immerse yourself into a world of wonder this Spring break. A museum is always an affordable and fun spot to spend a few hours learning new things, admiring art pieces, or experiencing something new. The Witte Museum is a UNATION favorite where visitors can explore nature, science, and different cultures. They offer exciting and changing exhibitions throughout the year like “Toys: The Way We Play” with childhood retro toys or a recently opened exhibit on Antarctic Dinosaurs! The Witte is a must! Come on a Tuesday after 3 pm for free admission!

📸: Enchanted Rock
Get outdoors and reach new heights while hiking to the summit of Enchanted Rock. This spot is a personal favorite and is always a great time with magical scenery and beautiful views. Enjoy a perfect Spring day before the Texas Summer heat sets in and make the climb, bring a picnic, and enjoy the sunset over the hill country. Come at night for the ultimate stargazing experience!
Been there, hiked that?
Check out Friedrich Wilderness Park for a hill-filled hike through any of the 8 trails. Bask in the sunlight and wander at Comanche Lookout Park while viewing the historical medieval-style tower that was never finished. Or, enjoy a relaxing stroll through Bamberger Nature Park, a quick and easily accessible destination.
