Spring Activities: 50 Things We Can't Wait To Do this Spring in Houston

After almost a full year of socially distancing and staying home, Houston is positively blooming with spring activities and events as the state begins to open up again. Outdoor activities are the name of the game, and our Playgrounds & Parks Guide is sure to be your go-to resource for all the different places you can get active outdoors.

Spring is a great time to do a little family camping, and there are tons of campgrounds close to Houston that will allow you to get out of town without traveling far. New to camping? We recommend checking out our comprehensive guide to RV camping for all sorts of tips and tricks. If you're interested in traveling a little farther, we highly recommend Pedernales Falls State Park and Longhorn Cavern State Park

Because we never can be too confident what the weather will be like in Houston, heading to an indoor play space to seek refuge from inclement weather is always a fantastic idea. Classic places for kid-friendly fun like bowling alleys, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, indoor roller skating, and trampoline parks are always excellent choices when the weather is less than cooperative.

For more ideas of where to have fun in Houston this spring, check out our list 100 Things To Do With Houston Kids for a plethora of ideas perfect for almost any time of year. Read on for some of our top event and activity picks this spring.

While the mask mandate has been lifted in Texas and businesses are once again operating at 100%, we recommend continuing to social distance and be vigilant about Covid-19. Stay safe and healthy this spring!
