About a week ago, we took a trip down to Austin to meet a dear friend who we’ve known for many years online but have yet to meet in person. It was his first trip to the States and he was staying with a family in Austin, so we had to stop by and say hi. I decided I wanted to visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center since we have never been there and it’s a place I’ve been wanting to check out. We spent a few hours exploring the grounds. It’s definitely a beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors. We went on an exceptionally beautiful day. Warm and breezy, we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
There are gorgeous pieces of garden art throughout the Wildflower Center.
Monk had an awesome time running around. She especially liked going up to the observation tower.
Once we explored all of the main outdoor space. We headed to the gift shop to pick up a couple of items. They have a nice selection of gifts. Garden art, wind chimes, shirts and hats, books and much more. After the gift shop, we dropped our items in the Jeep and headed back to explore the Hill Country Trail.
There was a beautiful spot where they strung up lots of bench swings, baby swings, and rope swings. We stopped there to rest and play on the swings for a bit.
We all had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend it if you haven’t been there before. General Admission is $9 for adult. $7 for seniors 65 and older. $7 for students ages 13 and up, and $3 for children ages 5-12. Children 4 and under are free.
