Location: New Braunfels, TX
What to Expect: Ranked the No. 1 kid-friendly destination in the state of Texas, Schlitterbahn comprises more than 40 rides and family activities. Since the entire thing is a water park, swimsuit-phobes and water-weary families might want to cross this one off of their lists.
For the Little Ones: Preswimmers will still have plenty to keep them busy. Six kiddie pool play areas include Kinderhaven, which is centered around a mini pirate ship, and Schatze's Central Park, home to the park mascot, a lovable, life-sized dachshund.
