With the soaring cost of gas and baggage upcharges on the airlines, families are looking for fun that’s not so far away.
In the spirit of saving, I’d like you to post your ideas. I want your recommendations of some great Houston and Greater Houston area hot spots.
My family used to go to a campground and recreation center called Chain O’ Lakes. I’ve been wanting to take a weekend trip there since I moved back to Houston. There were areas where you could camp in a tent or you could rent a cabin. There was a lake-fed pool with a slide… or the more adventurous could swim in the chain of lakes along with a lot of friendly-seeming gators!
When I tried to check the place out recently, I found the name has changed and it’s gotten more high-falootin! But it’s only about an hour north of Houston, and it looks like a lot of fun.
What about a Dude Ranch?? I think that sounds like so much fun!
For the adults….
Tours are every Saturday at 1pm. The cost is only $5.
Cooking anyone? Get some girlfriends together and register to make something yummy.
HEB Central Market, Brennan’s of Houston and Whole Foods all offer classes and events. And you can even get the kids involved. Maybe the end of summer, with a few of these classes, they’ll be making dinner for you!
Now share your ideas by posting a comment. What did you do this Memorial Day weekend others may be able to try this summer?
