Best Playground That Isn't

TIE: Austin-Bergstrom International Airport; Boggy Creek Farm

Kids like airplanes. Bergstrom has lots of airplanes, and unlike Mueller, you can go there without losing your mind, and you can go anytime, and you only have to pay for parking. Kids also like farms. Boggy Creek Farm - a real farm in the heart of the city - has chickens and tractors and friendly farmers, and while you can only go Wednesday and Saturday mornings, you only have to pay for the produce you buy. Which, after you see and taste it, will seem like a great deal.
