Looking for the best things to do in Houston this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

It’s the first weekend of February, and it’s a wild one! You can have amazing animal encounters at the Houston Botanic Gardens, go on armadillo adventures at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, or experience an Owl Prowl at the Houston Audubon Raptor Center. 

Also, February is Black History Month, and the Children’s Museum Houston is having a Black History Month Celebration all weekend to celebrate the legacy and contributions of the African American community.

And this weekend The Harlem Globetrotters will be in town. The Globetrotter stars are sure to bring their amazing basketball skills, outrageous athleticism, and a non-stop good time to Houston.
