We’re sharing some Texas photos again this week, in conjunction with the Wandering Off blog’s Texas Photo Round-Up. Sarah V. shares her photos of the Bandera General Store which we’ve been meaning to visit. And Linda over at Travels With Children shared a photo of the Christmas Pyramid in Fredericksburg. We saw it this year too, and agree – it’s definitely big!
Zilker Park is an oasis in downtown Austin – filled with green spaces for sports, picnics, lounging and playing with the dog. It’s a great open space for the city. Inside the park is the Botanical Garden – 31 acres of planned gardens with themes ranging from Asian to a prehistoric dinosaur garden. There is also a butterfly garden, rose garden and several others to enjoy. The garden is free all year, but there is a $3 parking fee from March through early September. It is absolutely worth a visit if you are in Austin!
