Are you ready to let your kids go to college? Even when they are really young UT grounds are a wonderful place to explore! There is entertainment for everyone, no matter what they like. Take your backpacks, fill your water bottles and lets go!
We like to start our tour in 21st street. There is a great photo opportunity at the littlefield fountain. It is a world war I memorial monument that was completed in 1933. It was built from granite, bronze and limestone. Next to the fountain you can find the Harry Ransom Center. It is a small but very interesting museum. It owns one of the few complete Gutenberg bibles! This are believed to be the first printed books in existence. They also have one of the first photographs. You can have a snack outside the Center and below the trees.
Keep walking north and you will find the famous UT Tower. It is 307 foot tall and has more than twenty-seven floors! Right behind it, before you reach 24th street, is the favourite place for children: the turtle pond!
You can get really close but watch out for snapping turtles!
