Houston Happenings | May

Happy May!

It’s time for May Events in Houston! Approaching Mother’s Day, wrapping up the school year and ready to begin a carefree and relaxing (well, kinda) summer…

What could be better?

Houston Moms can think of a few things that could make this month even better: Exciting, new adventures around Houston!

While our monthly guide ALWAYS provides options to soak up the sun in our bustling metropolis, sample some good eats and check a few experiences off our personal checklists, this month’s guide embraces even more opportunities to dig into Houston!

And before we dive into the summer months, make sure to check out our incredibly MUST-SEE Camp Guide and VBS Guide that ensure a summer that is packed full of memories!

Feel the love this month, moms, and enjoy the beautifully blooming month of May!

Here are some ways to make it a May to remember:
