Summer days mean extra sunlight, lots of time with friends, and filling our days with as many engaging and entertaining activities as possible. But while planning full days of fun for the kids is a priority, opening your wallet and paying for full days of fun is not. Luckily, there are a lot of amazing, free summer activities in Houston. To help other families save a buck without sacrificing any fun, here's a bucket list of 50 FREE summer activities in Houston that we'll be checking out in 2022. Make sure you also check our event calendar every day for even more family-friendly fun around Houston.
