Summer Activities

Brittany Barnes, M.A, CST-Candidate

Hey it’s Brittany with #weekendvibes!  School is out, temperatures are rising and vacation vibes are all around!  Summer is officially here, and there are a number of activities to do in our beautiful city.  Discovery green is a free option, that offers different things to do for all ages.  You can catch a yoga class in the park, take the kids to play in the fountains or play set, take a ride in the paddle boats or catch a free movie at night.  Discovery green is a beautiful space that has something for anybody, and is cost effective.  Another budget friendly summer activity are free movies that are being offered during the summer at the Miller Outdoor Theater.   You can bring a blanket and set up a picnic while enjoying a movie from the hill.  Along the lines with affordable and fun activities; Alamo Drafthouse offers $5 movie tickets before 2 PM.  Another exciting summer deal in our city is that museums are offering free entries to museums in the museum district at different times of the day, every Thursday.  The Museum of Fine Arts and The Children’s Museum are two of the museums that are participating in Free Museum Day.  It is really exciting to see that Houston is providing a variety of activities that a family, couple or individual can partake in that are not only fun, but wallet friendly as well.  Summer time can be just the reason we need to take some time off to decompress and spend some much-needed quality time with others and ourselves.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  Have fun!
