Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Topgolf Webster (in Webster), Kemah (Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave, Kemah Boardwalk, &more) and Galveston (Moody Mansion, 1892 Bishop's Palace, &more). There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Houston Zoo, examine the collection at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and play a few rounds at Hermann Park.
