Now that Halloween is over, it's time to (at least try to) get into the holiday spirit! This month you can still check out a fall festival or two, but Santa is already making appearances around town. For inside activities, check out an area trampoline park, or indoor play area. It's also the perfect time of year for a weekend camping trip to get the most of the weather.
Not too long ago, longtime Houstonians may have referred to Cypress as "the country," but the northwest Houston suburb has certainly grown. It's bustling with unique small businesses, particularly some great restaurants and breweries. There are plenty of reasons to spend the day out in the CYP, and there is plenty to do. These are our top recommendations for places to see and where to eat in Cypress with kids.
Fun events and activities for Houston kids and families in October 2019.
Color Factory, a new interactive pop-up exhibit, opens in Houston this fall and it's bursting with color and fun for kids (and adults) of all ages. If your kids couldn't get enough of summer's Candytopia, then Color Factory needs to be on the top of your to-do list. Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. today (Sept. 24)!
The Texas Renaissance Festival is back in town, and if you and your family have never been, make this year your first. As the state's largest festival of its kind (and one of the biggest in the country), it is an experience like no other - and it's just a short drive from Houston. Even its 200-acre location has an eclectic story; a former strip-mining site turned Renaissance theme park complete with authentic art, larger-than-life statues and structures, and a village of shops, restaurants, and stages that look like they've been plucked from another era.
The Texas Renaissance Festival has things to do for families and kids, making it a great weekend getaway from Houston.
Now that it is allegedly cooler outside and you can leave your house without fear of overheating, it's the ideal time to visit these nearby spots that could feel pretty miserable during summer. Before the holiday season gets into gear, pack up the car and take the kids to look at gators or see where Texas' favorite ice cream is made. We've rounded up nine fun day trips below.
