Ideas For A Staycation Near Houston

There’s a whole lot to be said about a summer staycation, especially a staycation near Houston, for a couple or the whole family. Near Sagewood, there are so many fun activities that can be done all in a days drive and you’re not out all of the additional money for extended travel and overnight stays, in addition to the dreads of packing and detailed planning. When you’re planning a staycation near Houston, all you need are some good walking shoes, comfortable clothes and a lot of energy so you can enjoy the day!

Double Movie Day

One thing about going to watch a movie at a theatre is that you’re forced to sit down and you don’t have all the sometimes added interruptions when trying to watch a movie at home. And while trying to beat this summer heat, enjoying a movie in a cool theatre, especially in one of those new, comfortable recliners, can be a treat! So consider rounding up the significant other and/or the kids and plan on watching one movie and even another after that. Or, you can always make it a fun summer evening by going to a drive-in! 

Visit a Museum

When was the last time you went to a museum? While there are many amazing museums in the area, Houston’s Health Museum has something for the whole family to enjoy and their mission is to empower healthy living. This unique museum offers a real-life journey through the human body that will be sure to delight and educate at the same time. The Health Museum offers Free Family Thursday 2 PM – 7 PM, and one of the many unique displays include a 22-foot-long backbone with ribs descending from the ceiling to the floor! So take a detour and learn something new during your next staycation, either here or at another spectacular, local museum in the Houston area!

Lunch or Dinner

Somewhere along the way you’ll need to stop to eat. Whether it be for lunch or dinner, stop in for a bite at PapaGayo’s Restaurant which is here at in Sagewood. Their menu includes a variety of mouthwatering choices including enchiladas, tacos and other Mexican food staples like the local favorite, PapaGayo’s Tamales.

Coffee and a Book

To round off the day you might want to drop by a coffee shop and recharge before you head back home. Instead of whipping out the electronic device or phone, bring a book with you and escape into a good story while you enjoy your hot coffee or latte.

Enjoying the day to the fullest doesn’t mean you have to take an overnight trip somewhere, especially when there are plenty of options for an amazing staycation near Houston. Getting up early and getting in the mindset that you’re going to enjoy yourself and the day locally can not only save you money, but it can allow you a hassle-free mini-vacation away from the house that leaves you recharged.
