Houston Astros Game

Minute Maid Park is one of the Must See Things to do in Houston with kids. There is fun for everyone here, including witnessing the roof being open on clear sky days. What other park has this? None. That’s right. Houston is a gem, and this is one of our exceptionally cool attractions. Also, when a home run is hit, there is a train that goes around the park, and the rooftop!

Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo

If you are visiting Houston for the months of February through March, just go ahead and bring your cowboy hat and boots and plan on going to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. It’s what everyone does! When the Rodeo comes to town (quite literally), the city focuses on it! Traffic becomes super heavy, they have a trail ride the weekend before it opens and you’ll see horses pulling wagons and cowboys throughout the city. The concerts are hand picked every year and they never disappoint. Neither does the food. If you want fried food-you’re in the right place. The HLSR will fry anything. Oreos, ice cream, turkey legs, fruit, etc. You name it. They fry it. And it is delicious.

Discovery Green

This park has a lot of things to do in Houston with kids, and they pretty much have events all year long. It is a 12 acre park in downtown Houston, with an interactive fountain, one acre lake, playground, and. more. Most of the events hosted by Discovery Green are free, as they are put on by the Discovery Green Conservatory which is a non profit organization.
