My husband's 14 year old brother is coming into town next week to spend 4th of July weekend with us. I need some suggestions of things to do.
Here is the list of stuff I am looking for:
  • Affordable
  • Fun for both him and us
  • Not too hot
  • Not a lot of standing
  • Possibly less known so that the crowds won't be too terrible
Basically, we want to take him to the Schlitterbahn, but I don't know if I can stand being out in the heat that long. I won't be doing any of the rides of course, but it does seem like a huge waste for me to pay almost $40 to get in and not be able to do anything because I am about to pop. My husband is going to take him paint balling, but I want something we can all do together. I don't want to go any further than Austin or San Antonio (I live in San Marcos). Gas is too expensive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, especially if they involve caves or spelunking. I think that would be neat.

something where you can sit down and just relax would be good in your situation.
relaxing time on the lake or something? im not familiar with the area, just throwing it out there!

jessica, it is kind of expensive but wonder world cave can be a good time, otherwise you can still hit up the movies, the river (without tubes even, go to rio vista falls over by the river pub), bring him to the REC for some racquetball for $3 a person, go get bubble tea a the Bubble House, all here in san marcos

in austin, you can kayak/canoe (you can sit in the middle and have an umbrella) on town lake, go play mini-golf, alamo drafthouses, san antonio? you can always go to the river walk and get some ice cream, if you don't want to walk you can get a wheelchair for yourself.

Thanks for the ideas, Blue. I'm not too concerned with walking the River Walk. I did it on Saturday so I'm sure I could do it again, especially since it's really shady. I just don't want to be in the sun AND walking. That would suck ass.

I just really wanted to do some scenic stuff like caves and stuff. It would be fun.

Oh and what is Bubble Tea?

It's funny. I have lived in San Marcos for almost a year, and I haven't heard of almost any of the ideas you mentioned lol.

there is also the inner space caverns in san antonio as well

bubble tea is basically a tea product that is mixed with fruit flavors and either served on ice or blended with ice, with milk if you like. what makes it bubble tea really is that you can get these large gummi tapioca balls in your beverage with a great texture and taste like tea. you suck them through a big straw, quite delicious in my opinion. it is over one block south of sean patrick's

oh yeah, you can also go to the driving range on Hopkins, just past the walmart, if your husband is into golf at all. his bro might like it too.

I used to work in Cascade Caverns as a tourguide, Natural Bridge is better.

There are a couple of museums in Austin as well.
