Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
Kids are truly the ones who will shine in the capital of the Lone Star State thanks to a new summer package from the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
The hotel in Austin, which just completed an extensive $12 million renovation, plans to round up youngsters and their parents with its Kids Eat Free Package providing deluxe accommodations starting at $169 per night plus complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner for up to four children ages 12 and under with the purchase of adult meals.
Now that school is out, moms and dads around the country are trying to plan fun and educational getaways to keep their children occupied and entertained. There are plenty of things to do in Austin that will satisfy both missions, including:
** Austin’s newest discovery, iFly! Indoor skydiving for ages 2 to 102, just five minutes from the hotel.
** TopGolf at the Domain. A triple-decker driving range re-imagined for all ages. No clubs? No problem, they have plenty!
** Jumpstreet, a 20,000 square foot wall-to-wall indoor trampoline park.
** Sunset Bat Experience. Watch the largest bat colony in North America take flight each evening at sunset.
** A Round Rock Express baseball game. Experience America’s favorite pastime at one of the top-rated Minor League ballparks in the country, Dell Diamond. Fireworks show after many evening games!
** A visit to the Texas State Capitol. Free 45-minute guided tours are available that explain the history of the great state, the capitol building, as well as a peek into the state’s legislature.
** The Main Event! Enjoy everything from arcade and video game fun, to bowling, rock climbing, billiards, glow golf, dining and more.
** Touring the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Explore exhibits and see special-effects films in what’s called the one place big enough to tell the whole story of Texas.
** Riding a Segway around the city. It’s more about riding the stand-up, mechanized gizmos and less about the three-hour tour, but kids will still learn about Austin and its many offerings.
** Checking out the Austin Children’s Museum. The facility creates innovative learning experiences with exhibits that let children play backup to Willie Nelson and become a train engineer.
Parents also can take advantage of the Austin hotel’s Navigator, Paul Love, who can offer suggestions on other adventures around the city. Love is a native Austinite and can point families to all of the hot spots and must-dos. The pet-friendly Austin hotel has some amusement opportunities of its own. Indoor and outdoor pools allow families to frolic in the water and play Marco Polo or dive for quarters while enjoying the warm temperatures.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be a treat at @ustinbytes and Banderas – A Texas Bistro. @ustinbytes features fresh baked pastries, made-to-order pizzas and sandwiches and gourmet desserts in a cybercafé-style environment. The eatery boasts a communal table for larger families as well as individual tables for smaller units. Banderas also features a casual atmosphere and serves Texas-style cuisine influenced by the state’s history. Diners will find everything from Texas cinnamon raisin French toast and a Southwest egg white wrap to tortilla soup and blackened fish tacos on the eatery’s menus. Kids will enjoy dessert the most with a six-layer death by chocolate cake and three flavors of Amy’s ice cream.
The hotel renovations included complete makeovers of all guest rooms and suites, so if the day’s activities aren’t enough to wear out children for bedtime, the comfy king and queen beds topped with new down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows should lull them into a sound night’s slumber at one of the premier hotels in Austin. Grownups will appreciate the distinctive new, regionally-inspired room décor, plus luxuriously upgraded, spa-like bathrooms as well as amenities such as single-cup coffeemakers, oversized chairs with ottomans, irons and ironing boards and mini-refrigerators. Kids can watch their morning cartoons on 42-inch flat-screen TVs and stream movies on their computers or tablets with available high-speed Internet access in all rooms. The Austin hotel also offers premium movie channels.
Families who want to spend some quality bonding time together can book the Kids Eat Free Package online or by calling 1-800-228-9290 and using promotional code ZJ6. The Austin hotel deal is good for stays through Sept. 2, 2013, when they are booked by Aug. 15.
