Mazda makes some of the most fuel-efficient cars around, so they’re the perfect choice for families in the Victoria area who spend their weekends scoping out all the best kid-friendly attractions within driving distance. Here are some of the best places around Victoria to take your kids.

1: Hit the beach

Victoria is less than an hour from seaside towns like Port O’Connor and Magnolia Beach, so spend a day on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico with your kids. Pack your Mazda car or SUV’s spacious cargo area with towels and a cooler full of snacks and you’re set!

2: Visit the zoo

If you’d rather stay closer to home, check out the Texas Zoo right in Victoria. This acclaimed zoo isn’t just home to a wide array of exotic animals but also features a petting zoo that kids will go crazy for. This is just one of many zoos in Texas, though—and a fuel-efficient Mazda is the perfect car to explore them all in!

3: Children’s Discovery Museum

Another of the many great family destinations around Victoria is the Children’s Discover Museum, a great place to keep your kids entertained when it’s too hot to play outside. It’s affordable, educational, and fun for kids and adults alike.

4: Outlaw Pass Family Fun Center

For a more active day out, try the Outlaw Pass Family Fun Center, where you and your family can race go-karts, play arcade games, climb rock walls, and swim in the outdoor water park, plus so much more!

The best way to get to any of these destinations is behind the wheel of a new Mazda vehicle from Atzenhoffer Mazda.
