Hello! My husband has to go to CC for a work trip so I've decided to tag along with the kids for a long weekend (4 days total). Kids (ages 2 and 4) want to see the beach so here we come!

As a family, we'll take 2 days to do the beach and the Aquarium, but while hubs is at work, I'm looking for low-key, kid-friendly things to do. Examples would be a library with great kids section, a nice park with shade (maybe a train like our Zilker here in Austin) or a bounce-house-type place. Any suggestions are appreciated!

(Obviously looking for things to do in the safer areas too since I'm not familiar with the area. We are staying at the Omni since that's near his office.)

Also, we're thinking of hitting either North Beach or Magee Beach. Thoughts? We really just want to play in the sand, get our toes wet, and collect shells. I don't want to deal with huge waves, tons of seaweed, or undertows. Looking to keep it simple for our first beach trip.

Thanks so much in advance for any direction and advice you can provide!!

There's a pirate ship cruise that's fun but pricey. It's up in Port Aransas.
Lots of bouncy houses, but they have scheduled parties on weekends, and open time only on weekdays.
The museum of science and history has a kids zone that is popular. Not many parks with shade, sadly. The minor league baseball stadium has some fun stuff if they're playing at home while you're here.
Otherwise, there is mini golf, hurricane alley water park, amongst a few other things.

Dinner at Snoopys on the pier and dessert next door at Scoopys would be fun. You can sit outside and watch the sunset. It's very casual and a good place to go with kids. The aquarium has a water park. Touring the aquarium itself will not take more than a couple of hours.

Pier 99 seafood restaurant, on North Beach, overlooking downtown, the Lexington, and the Harbor Bridge would be a great place to take the kids out to eat. You can also take them to the Lexington, souvenir shops, drive out to the ferry in Port A, or take the kids to Cole Park on Ocean Dr.
