Houston has an endless list of fun things to do around town. However, we recognize that when you live somewhere, it can frequently feel like you are doing the same activities, going to the same spots, or seeing the same things over and over again.

And, that can get old and boring! But, luckily enough, we have rounded up a list of fun ideas and suggestions of things to do around Houston on weekends. Take a look at what we found!

Fun Things to do in Houston on the Weekends

Visit the zoo

The Houston Zoo is a great place to go on the weekends for people of all ages. With animals like birds, reptiles, aquatic animals, mammals, and a large selection of others, there is no shortage of things to see!

The zoo also has a cafe and shops, so you certainly won’t go hungry while you’re there!

With a robust calendar of events and even a holiday light attraction over the winter, visiting there is bound to provide a fun day and exciting experience.

Visit the Art Car Museum

If you have an interest in cars or love to see new things and learn, this museum is a place to see!

Referred to as Garage Mahal, this venue features art related to fine cars and during any visit there, you are guaranteed to see some unique art that you haven’t had a chance to view before.

In fact, the museum prides itself on showcasing artists that do not frequently receive recognition elsewhere. The museum has been open since 1998 and has been a Houston attraction ever since!

Visit Memorial Park

Take a stroll around a park to unwind, relax, and enjoy yourself over the weekend. You deserve it! Memorial Park is the perfect place to do so, as at 1,466 acres it is one of the largest urban parks in America.

With running and cycling trails, an 18-hole golf course, a fitness center, perfectly placed benches, and beautiful scenery – there is no arguing that this is the perfect spot to spend a day off.

Whether you’re looking to have some time to yourself or you’re spending time with the whole family, this is a spot that cannot be beat!


Visit the railroad museum

If you are looking to learn over the weekend, all while having fun, the railroad museum is a great spot to visit.

The Historic Rosenberg Railroad Museum showcases a collection of historic railcars and train paraphernalia as well as recreation of the historic and original depot.

A day at the museum is not only enjoyable but is educational as well!


Rock climbing course

Heading to Texas Rock Gym for a rock climbing course is something fun and invigorating to do over the weekend.

Improve communication skills, challenge yourself, and increase your confidence with this fun and exhilarating indoor course. This will leave you feeling refreshed and excited!

While you may think you’ve done everything there is to do in the Houston area, there is much more out there to experience. Get out and enjoy yourself!
