We have a 2.5 year old DD so it has to be somehting that she would enjoy. We can't really spend a lot of money but still want to do something worth it if we drive anywhere. And we most likely aren't staying the whole week. There's the rules lol.

Please help!!! Spring break starts next weekend.

Thanks in advance.

  • If you need to stay somewhere you're probably too late for reservations. We made ours at South Padre 6 months ago and they were hard to get. There is always Schlitterbahn, Six Flags, In Corpus you could go to the Aquarium, the Lexington and some of the memorials, great parks too. Camping...except it will be hard to get reservations at this time. We love Bastrop State Park. There is always Lake Texoma.

  • Since your child is only 2.5 I would do little day trips like to the zoo one day or children's museum or to a park that yall don't usually go to.
    We live in Huntsville and we are doing small day trips to the Houston Zoo and then the State Park and a few other places that don't cost a whole lot. GL

  • Go to an amusement park or zoo if you have one.

  • Not certain how far you are wanting to travel as TX is a big state but Fossil Rim Wildlife park in Glen Rose, TX is offering a Spring Break deal where you get 1 free admission per every 5 old cell phones (working or not, battery not necessary) no limits on # of free admission. But younger kids may become bored with the car ride after a while but Dinosaur Valley can be neat if the river is not too high for the kids to wade off in the water & see the tracks or walk the trails on the other side as that is about all there is to do @ the park

    Fossil Rim Wildlife Center - This 1,700-acre wildlife center, located in Glen Rose, is dedicated to preserving and protecting endangered and threatened species. Visitors can view over 1,000 animals from their own car or on guided tours
    Dinosaur Valley State Park - Located in Glen Rose, the park features 2 dinosaur models as well as the Paluxy River, preserved dinosaur tracks
