Kids' Activities at La Cantera Resort

Discover La Cantera

Family vacations should be paradise for parents and kids alike. Parents should be able to lounge in a luxury cabana or even enjoy an indulgent couples’ spa treatment while kids romp around in the splash area or participate in our kids clubs. This is the basis for La Cantera’s family activities.

La Cantera has long been a beloved destination for families because it embraces both what parents need to relax and what kids need to play. When families aren’t cooling off in the pool, they can be playing games in the arcade or taking the resort shuttle to Six Flags. Discover all of the activities that have made La Cantera Resort one of the best family destinations in Texas.

  • In March of 1960, Orion Knox Jr., Preston Knodell, Al Brandt and Joe Cantu, four college students from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, obtained permission to explore the area that is now Natural Bridge Caverns. The students were convinced that large underground passages existed under the amazing 60-foot limestone bridge. On their fourth expedition, Orion felt a cool draft from a rubble-filled crawlway. Such air currents often indicate the presence of additional rooms or passages.

    The explorers made their way carefully climbing and crawling through two miles of vast cavern passage. After making this amazing discovery, they returned to the surface to tell the landowners. The discoverers knew immediately what an astonishing find they had made and the land owners decided to develop the first 1/2 mile, the most spectacular part of the caverns, for the enjoyment of guests from around the world. That first 1/2 mile is now the Discovery Tour. Natural Bridge Caverns Discovery Tour was developed with two main goals in mind: preservation of the caverns’ environment and comfort of its guests. The result is one of the world’s premier show caverns, and one of the most popular attractions in Texas.

  • Rolling hills, fields of wildflowers, breathtaking views and awe-inspiring sunsets, the Texas Hill Country is a Texas-sized adventure. From tubing the Guadalupe River and hiking Enchanted Rock, to finding treasures at hidden antique shops and sipping boutique wine with local winemakers, the Hill Country has it all – and La Cantera Resort isn’t far at all.  The massive pink granite dome rising above Central Texas has drawn people for thousands of years. But there’s more at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area than just the dome. The scenery, rock formations and legends are magical, too!

  • Nestled on the edge of Texas Hill Country and just a short way from La Cantera Resort is the National Shooting Complex. Boasting an incredible 671 acres of picturesque countryside, this multi-million dollar complex is considered one of the most complete sport shooting and recreational facilities in the world. Enjoy a round on Thursdays and Saturdays during open public shooting: sporting clays, trap, skeet, 5-stand and bunker trap.
