We must admit, we are pretty excited that the heat is coming to an end and that we are staring the cooler months in the face and walking right towards them! During the summer months, Houston outdoor activities are hustling and bustling around and you can find just about every Houstonian outside having fun. However, once the summer months come to an end and winter is upon us, things start to slow down outside and those of us who live in HTown start looking for indoor activities to fill our time. Alta City West wants to provide you with indoor Houston fun for the cooler months so you have some options to escape the oddness of a cool Houston.
The Downtown Aquarium, Houston is so much more than just any old aquarium. Here you can learn about anything from the Louisiana Swamp life to the White Tigers of the Maharaja’s Temple. There’s a stingray petting zoo and an adventure through the shark tan to satisfy those who want to live on the edge a little, too.
Space Center Houston
If you’re fascinated by outer space and all that we know about it so far, this is the place for you. From meeting an astronaut to a simulator that lets you feel what it’s like to be in space, The Space Center is filled with all sorts of educating exhibits. But don’t let that education fool you, this place is a blast!
Alta City West
One of our favorite options (unbiased, of course) is taking the day to sit and relax at Alta City West. We have a pool table, a clubhouse, a cyber café, a gym, a community kitchen for parties, and a lounge. Plus, you don’t have to drive at all and at the end of your fun you can call it a night and head up to bed.
While it may not necessarily get cold in Houston, per se, its still just not as fun to be outdoors when it’s grey and gloomy. Besides, we spend so much time outdoors in the summer months that winter is the perfect time to get indoors and learn all the things you’ve been meaning to the past few months! Besides, who doesn’t love a good learning day?
