It’s time to get out of the house and enjoy the cool, fall breeze you’ve been waiting for. Whether your family enjoys pumpkin patches or the zoo, you can find plenty of activities to keep the kids busy this fall. Here are are a few ideas of family activities to add to your calendar:
Visit the Zoo
The Texas heat can make visiting the zoo during the summer a less-than-fun day. In the fall, the animals are out enjoying the cool fall breeze, too! The Houston Zoo also has a special section just for the kids, and the zoo hosts their annual Zoo Lights event in late fall.
Have a Picnic
What’s better than having a piece of pumpkin pie at a family picnic? Pack a bag of your family’s favorite picnic foods, grab a blanket, and you’re set! Check out our list of the best picnic spots in Texas.
Texas Renaissance Festival
Get your costume ready! This is a must-visit event every fall, and it’s fun for the entire family. You can spend the entire day looking in awe at costumes and eating turkey legs. There are even themed weekends, from pirates to fairies.
Texas’ major cities all have museums that are worth a visit. In Houston, you can spend an entire weekend museum hopping around the Museum District. Whether you prefer art, history, or science, there’s something for you!
Local Pumpkin Patches
Pumpkin patches are an affordable option that also offer a perfect setting for an Instagram post! Go pick out your pumpkin (or four) and get ready to carve them, cook them, or simply decorate your home with them.
