Father's Day Weekend in Houston: Best Things To Do in Houston with Kids

This weekend in Houston is going to be a good one because it's time to celebrate our favorite superhero! Father's Day is this Sunday, June 20, and we've rounded up a plethora of fantastic Father's Day events and activities near Houston that Dad is sure to love. There are festivals, brew fests, movies, and more ways to keep all ages happy.

Also on tap this weekend near Houston is Galveston Island's Juneteenth Festival, offering a great excuse to day trip down to the island or just enjoy it as a full weekend getaway (which we highly recommend!). Between the festival, the family-friendly beaches, and all of the other things to do in Galveston, there is no shortage of ways to keep your Houston kids entertained here.

Looking for another day trip from Houston that's sure to please Dad? How about perusing our Texas Family Day Trips Guide, or maybe just cooling off with tubing at these nearby rivers, or a swim in these sublime Texas lakes
