Summer fun in Houston

Downtown Houston Texas

Summer is almost here, and there are plenty of weekends ahead to plan a little fun.   Here are just a few events and things to do!

Take a Bayou City Bike tour around historic Houston or in the Buffalo Bayou Park!  Bicycles and water are provided and each tour takes about 3 hours.   For more information visit their website.

For museum lovers, how about visiting the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston or the Houston Museum of Natural Science?  Both feature some very interesting permanent and visiting exhibits, and admission is fairly cheap.  There are even some exhibits that children will find interesting.

Of course, for a day outdoors with the kids, nothing beats the Houston Zoo.  In addition to the great animal exhibits of elephants and primates, there are activities for the entire family.  From Camp Zoofari for all ages (including adults)  to overnight experiences,  it’s too easy to fill your calendar with zoo fun.  Check out more ideas here.

After you visit the past at the zoo, you can blast off to the future at the Space Center Houston.  Family members of all ages will enjoy the usual space center activities, but fans of the original Star Trek series will want to visit the center to check out the Shuttlecraft Galileo set piece.  Featured in several episodes of the series, the set piece and props have been restored by Star Trek fans!   Or, experience flying your own supersonic jet in the Above and Beyond exhibit.   Check out more attractions here.

Enjoy some beautiful music at one of the concerts at the Houston Symphony.  The 2018/2019 season includes Itzahk Perlman, Joshua Bell and Carmina Burana!  For box office tickets, click here.

No matter what you choose to do, make the most out of your entire summer.  At least head outdoors and take a walk around the local park or even your neighborhood.  Enjoy the sunshine!
