Do something historical: Experience Lone Star First Saturday in Montgomery, walk in General Sam Houston's footsteps in Huntsville, or admire the Victorian architecture and the museums of Galveston.

Do something natural: Discover the botanical gardens of Orange, splash around in the Gulf of Mexico, or gaze at the myriad bird species in Freeport.

Do something kid-approved: See exotic creatures at the Bayou Wildlife Park in Alvin, visit Space Center Houston, or climb a hay mountain at Dewberry Farms in Brookshire.
