5 Things To Do Thanksgiving Weekend


From local boutiques to national chains, Cedar Park has plenty of shopping options to choose from. The array includes a little something for everyone, from pets to babies, teens and significant others! If you missed our blog last week about shopping, you can find it here to learn more about our shopping areas.

Sculpture Garden

Grab your camera and head out to the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden. The 12 sculptures are all created by Texas artists and were unveiled just last month! Your artistic pictures are sure to be Instagram worthy!

Texas Museum of Science & Technology

If you haven’t been by TXMOST since they redesigned the museum, now is a great time to go! It currently features the special exhibitions Da Vinci’s Machines in Motion and DEA Drugs: Costs and Consequences (for the older crowd). Plus, longer nights mean it’s the perfect time of year for stargazing — every Friday night at 8 p.m. (weather permitting) TXMOST holds a weekly star party. At this free event, view the stars, planets and moon through an astronomer’s telescope.

Cedar Park Parks

It’s hard not to overindulge at Thanksgiving, so counterbalance it with a trip to one of Cedar Park’s parks. Go kayaking at Brushy Creek Lake Park. Bike the trails at Buttercup Creek Park. Shoot some hoops at Milburn Park. Check out the community garden at Veterans Memorial. Go birding at Balcones National Preserve. With beautiful scenery, you’ll be glad you went.

Craft Brews

We have three amazing craft breweries in Cedar Park and fun places to enjoy them. Red Horn Coffee House & Brewing Co. serves up delicious local beers in addition to coffee and lattes. With an inviting ambiance and a food menu, it’s easy to stay awhile. Whitestone Brewery is right in the heart of Cedar Park at the Railyard Station, where you’ll get the perfect view of the steam engines. Take the brews to go with one of their growlers. Thousand Oaks Brewery is the ideal place to sit back and relax. Every weekend, you can find a food truck and music by a local artist.
