2. Dusk Bat Watching
As day turns into dusk, go over to Waugh Bridge, stand back and watch its underside, and wait. Suddenly, thousands of bats that have taken up residence underneath will take off, en masse, when the sun is fading. This majestic display is truly a glorious sight to behold and you’ll find yourself drawn back to watch many times over.
3. Visit the Project Row Houses
These 8 houses are given to visiting artists for a 6-month rotation to use as art studios to create artistic works inspired by African American themes. The entire project is a study in social change and will spark your own creativity by the unique way each of the artists brings the present theme to life.
4. Eat Lunch in front of the Gerald D. Hines Water Wall
If you’ve got some time in your afternoon, go on over to this 64-foot wall of water that sits in the middle of this 2.77 acre park. It’s an amazing sight to behold and a fantastic place to picnic while listening to the fountain roar. Give yourself a moment to enjoy a little down time and relax.
5. Escape the Pavement Overnight Camping Trips
Created to let you shut off the outside world and reconnect with your family, significant other or friends, these themed getaways are one of a kind. Camping is rustic and slightly primitive, only making the experience that much more exciting and memorable. Leave everything to the guides who will take care of every detail of your trip.
6. Hover Lake Houston
Hose sports are the next big thing and here on the lake is where you’ll be able to experience it. Using high-powered hoses attached to fly boards or hover boards, you slip your feet in them, turn it on and are sent flying up into the air in a thrilling rush. You’re gonna love it.
7. Beer Can House Tour
When John Milkovisch started adding beer cans to his landscape and house façade, he didn’t know it would turn into such a unique landmark. You’ll walk the grounds and see how his bright idea just kept growing, delighting spectators with his commitment and passion as well as the quirky style. It definitely will make you smile.
8. Zuma Fun Centers
Take the day off, grab the family and play your heart out. You can indulge your inner child with mini-golf, go-karts, bumper cars and all those blasts from the past that are loads of fun. Sometimes you just need to give in to the kid in you and this is a perfect place to do it.
9. Xtreme Off Road Park & Beach
You’ll get muddy, dirty, and feel great doing it as you ride your ATV through the water, muck and mire. It’s a great sense of freedom and the trails you’ll get to experience are full of some amazing sights and wild life that turns each ride into the kind of experience that just keeps getting more enjoyable.
10. Cypress Trails Horseback Riding
