Annette Lucksinger cataloged and organized Austin for you.

The idea for this guidebook came one day after her youngest decided he liked Mom better than pre-school. The two decided to hang out more together, and Annette Lucksinger set out to find a guide of fun places to go and things to do.

Not finding one, Annette got a great idea!

Four years later, with hundreds of adventures under their belts, Exploring Austin with Kids was published. Together they found that there is PLENTY of fun stuff to do in Austin. You just have to know where to find it.
