Fun things to do in houston

Houston…we have a problem…come in Houston!  There are so many things to do for kids, we don’t know what to do first!

175 years ago, Houston was founded on just over 6,000 acres near the banks of Buffalo Bayou. In true, big, Texan style, it’s now the fourth-largest city in the country and jam packed with fun placed to go with kids! (We told you there are a lot of things to do!)

If it’s culture that you’re looking for, look no further than the many cultural attractions such as the InterActive Theatre Company which is JUST for kids aged 5 - 13.  Or perhaps you’re just looking for a place for kids to just…PLAY! There are a host of indoor play centers like Wonderwild or Happy Playland just for those little ones to create and stay active.

Fancy taking the kids to some incredible museums? Children’s Museum of Houston and the Houston Museum of Natural Science let’s kids explore, learn, and enjoy history!

Speaking of history…we think something very important happened at the Space Center Houston…now, what was that?
