Houston is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States. In all of the hours we spent stuck in traffic, it's easy to forget what makes our city great. Color Factory invites guests to embrace Houston's kaleidoscope of gifts through interactive art exhibits. This iteration of Color Factory comes on the heels of its popular Los Angeles and New York City locations, and it lives up to every bit of hype. Color Factory opened in November 2019 and will be open through February 2020 in Upper Kirby.
In early October, Disney officially opened "shop-in-shop" stores inside select Target locations across the United States. As if you needed another reason to love shopping at Target!
What kid doesn't love animals? (Or at least, one kind of animal...) Lucky for us Texas parents, the Lone Star State is home to many attractions and zoos that house exotic and regional animals, from elephants to deep sea creatures. We've picked some of our favorites to help while planning your next Texas family vacation.
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.

These are our top recommendations for places to see and where to eat in Cypress with kids.
