MIX is sharing all the fun and most importantly, FREE, activities and events going on in and around the Houston area this Memorial Day weekend.
We have a few outdoor options for you as well since the weather in Houston will be awesome this weekend! Maybe a little hot, but what’s new?
Bring your family and/or friends down to Kemah Boardwalk where you can play in their fountains and watch the boats go by.
Be sure to visit Bolivar Flats and the Houston Audubon Societies Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, a unique area combining salt marsh, mud flats and beach, each habitat quite different from the other. Every year hundreds of thousands of birds discover that Bolivar Flats is a special place.
Anyone can drive on the beach for free. But if you park on the beach you must have a parking permit on your windshield. The fee for the permit is $10.00 a year. To get the permit you can mail a check to Galveston County Parks Department or you can find a merchant on Bolivar that sells them and purchase it there.
Enjoy a family picnic at one of Houston’s parks. Pack a picnic lunch and head out to one of Houston’s 314 beautiful parks. Stroll amongst the trees or watch the kids play on the swing set. Either way, it’s sure to be a wonderful summer afternoon. To find a park near you, click here.
