Summer vacations may be over, but the weather is still great to be outside. Zilker Botanical Gardens has many exhibits to learn and interact with nature. Our first stop is the Japanese Garden. Kids love walking on the trails and exploring the ones that get them near the ponds. Make sure to stop at the little bamboo construction for a great photo opportunity.
All of our kids love the Butterfly garden. They learn about blacksmiths and composting, and they also get to visit the home of a bunch of special fairies.
Not only the fairies hide behind the tall trees at the Botanical Gardens, there are dinosaurs too! We can find the fossils and rocks or just enjoy the waterfall.
Right in the middle of it all is the Herb garden. You can find dill, rosemary and thyme. Take your time to smell and feel them!
