Since we provide residents with the total luxury experience, we figured we might as well provide you with some of our expertise in the community as well. The staff at Echelon on 99 is here to help. We know the area around Echelon on 99, and we think you should get to know it too!
Today, we’re talking about some of the best activities for kids in Houston and the surrounding area. It’s summertime in Texas, which means kids are out of school and parents are looking for ways to keep them busy. If you decided not to send the kids away to camp this summer, you’re probably looking for an educational, fun experience for the kids to enjoy.
Take a look at the list below and see if anything catches your eye. All the activities below have been highly rated by Houston parents, and you can read their in-depth reviews on Google and Yelp..
Scare your kids straight at Crocodile Encounter, located south of Echelon on 99. You can buy tickets to Houston’s largest reptile show, They have crocodiles, alligators, turtles and other animals that will get the kids excited. You can even go into a turtle pen to feed and hang out with the turtles. The more adventurous groups can decide to buy alligator food and feed it to the gators, too. Crocodile Encounter is perfect for summer birthday parties, or just a day learning about some of nature’s most intimidating animals.
Located just west of your West Bellfort apartments, Splashway Family Waterpark is the perfect activity for a hot summer day. Splashway Family Waterpark has Texas’ tallest head-first mat racer waterslide. Tell that to your kid and watch their eyes light up. If heights aren’t your thing, Splashway Family Waterpark also has a lazy river for relaxing in the sun.
You can go to Splashway for a day or you can make a weekend trip out of it by bringing your camping gear. The park has campground and RV park for people who just can’t get their fill of Splashway in one day.
Even people who have been to children’s museums all over the country rave about the Children’s Museum of Houston. At least, that’s according to Google reviews. It’s both educational and fun, since kids get to play with more than 14 hands-on interactive exhibits including robot programming and nanotechnology. The Children’s Museum of Houston can entertain kids of all ages, from toddlers to pre-teens.
Next time your child has a birthday, consider scheduling their party at the Children’s Museum of Houston. They have wide open spaces for groups of kids to run around, and you might be able to get the kids to learn something while they’re having fun.
