Now that "winter" is over, we can jump into one of our favorite times of year - spring! This month begins the round of spring festivals, spring break, the 2019 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and delicious crawfish festivals. And before you know it, summer will be here, so get ahead of the game by browsing the best summer camps Houston has to offer, from science to outdoor fun.
This month enjoy a free flick at the park in The Woodlands. On the first weekend of March, you can celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday at your local library with a marathon Seuss reading session or at the Children's Museum of Houston's Seuss birthday bash. Enjoy the outdoors at one of Houston's many fabulous parks, or take the little ones on a guided hike (yes, you really can hike in Houston). And on March 12, it's National Pancake Day - yum.
