Houston Happenings | June

It’s HERE! Summer is HERE!!!

School’s out, the sun is fiercely shining and good times and memories are awaiting!

But wait… what are we supposed to do all summer?! Don’t worry! Every month, we remind you of just how much there is to do around the Houston area, but the summer months are when our city truly comes to life.

Explore a summer camp or VBS option, help your children explore some good books in the shade of a beautiful park, or soak up the sun with a splash!

But remember: A chill summer, doing what is comfortable, reasonable and budget-friendly for you and your family is an incredible summer as well! Don’t drive yourself crazy with summer expectations. It doesn’t have to be a summer full of magic, mama! 

Soak in those summer vibes this June:
