Keeping the kids busy and happy is the name of the game this summer! For an activity that won’t break a sweat — or the bank — head to a bowling alley for some classic indoor family fun. This summer, kids have several options when it comes to bowling for FREE in the greater Austin area. Browse the list below and go hit the lanes.
