Best Daytime In Town Getaway

Zilker Zephyr

This is the little engine that can. The Zephyr, Zilker Park's tyke-sized train, departs every hour (10 or 11am until 5 or 6pm), providing a relaxing toot around the park. Check out the soccer games, the hikers and bikers on the trail, and the lush greenery on the banks of Town Lake. It's a neat little getaway from the day's grind for riders of all ages.
