When you’re planning a staycation near Houston, all you need are some good walking shoes, comfortable clothes and a lot of energy so you can maximize the day!
Double Movie Day
One great thing, among many, about going to watch a movie at a theatre is that you’re forced to sit down without all the added distractions of watching a movie at home. Also, while trying to beat this summer heat, enjoying a movie inside a cool theatre, especially in one of those new, comfortable recliners with food and drink options can be a treat! So consider rounding up the kids and plan on watching one movie and maybe even a second.
Visit a Museum
Houston’s Health Museum has something for the whole family! Their mission is to empower healthy living, so visit and learn all about living a healthy life. This unique museum offers a real life journey through the human body and it is extremely entertaining and educational. The Health Museum offers Free Family Thursday from 2pm- 7pm each Thursday. One of the many unique displays at the museum includes a 22-foot-long backbone with ribs descending from the ceiling to the floor. This larger-than-life backbone gives one the feeling of being inside a giant rib-cage. As part of your staycation, consider a visit to Houston’s spectacular Health Museum.
Lunch or Dinner
Somewhere along your staycation, you’ll need to stop and grab a bite to eat. Whether it is lunch or dinner and depending on what area of Houston you’re in, at some point you may consider stopping in for a bite at Hibachi Grill Supreme Buffet which is open in the Pine Hollow shopping center. Their menu includes a variety of mouthwatering choices that can be cooked to perfection right in front of you!
Coffee and a Book
To round off the day you might want to drop by a coffee shop to recharge heading back home. Consider bringing a book along and escape into a good story while you enjoy your hot coffee or latte.
