Cool Off with Some Culture

Visit HouMuse.org for a list of museums that are free on specific days of the week. If you go to the Houston Museum of Natural History, be sure to see the Planetarium.
Splash Down at a Water Park
Take the family or go it alone, but don’t miss the water amusement park experience this summer. Houston offers several popular water-ful destinations – both natural and manmade – from the Pirate’s Bay to Wet ‘n’ Wild SplashTown to Typhoon Texas and many more.
Have a One-Stop Shopping Day
