Things are heating up in Texas! The sun is shining, and gardens are blooming, making it the perfect time for fun in the sun. A large city like Houston is filled with plenty of space for outdoor activities in any part of town. Here are five ways to make the most of the sun here in Houston, TX.
Go on a Bike Ride or Walk
The Houston area is home to over 366 parks and 125 miles of hike-and-bike trails, perfect for any spring day! Head to Pundt Park, only a short walk or drive from Harmony in Spring, for loads of fresh air activities. After the perfect bike ride, go canoeing, visit the butterfly garden, or fish at the lake.
Add some color to your garden
The Texas sun is shining and ready for a full bloom! Start your spring garden by planting some flowers great for the Texas climate. Geraniums, petunias, snapdragons, and stock flowers are some great choices to add vibrant colors to your environment. Head to a plant nursery like Houston Garden Center near the loved Sienna community for everything you need to ensure a perfect bloom!
Try Family Spring Sports
Gather as many friends and family members as you can for some friendly competition! Katy Park near Cane Island has multiple sports fields and plenty of green space to host a family field day. Try your hands at racing, kickball, tug of war, and much more. Crown your winners at the end of it all and stir up the competition by making a tradition to do it again the next year!
Host a Picnic
Your perfect picnic can happen anywhere the sun shines. Find a shaded spot at your favorite park or don’t go farther than your backyard! All you need is your biggest blanket, a few of your favorite foods, and ice-cold drinks. Bring games for a bit of fun or a nice book to quietly unwind.
Go Rainbow Hunting
Spring showers in Houston are beautiful, but what makes them even better is the sunshine that follows them. Hop in the car with your favorite people and go hunting for rainbows around town. Even if you don’t spot one, this makes for great family bonding time!
