6 Fun Winter Activities in Houston
When you think of Houston, warm weather and fun in the sun instantly come to mind. But when the weather starts cooling down, you may be scratching your head thinking about what activities you can actually do during winter.
Despite the cooler weather, Houston offers all the hustle and bustle in winter as it does in summer—you just have to know where to look for fun things to do. Here are 6 fun winter activities around Houston.
Have Dinner and Drinks at Lei Low
If the cooler weather is getting you down, take a quick trip to the big island at Lei Low Bar in Houston. While the restaurant looks unassuming out front, it completely transforms into a Hawaiian getaway the moment you step inside. It’s the perfect place to relax, enjoy a delicious meal, and sip on tropical tiki drinks.
Sugar Land Ice and Sports Center
There’s nothing quite like ice skating when it’s cold outside; it’s an activity that just screams, “winter is here!” If a traditional winter activity is what you’re in the mood for, check out Sugar Land Ice and Sports Center, an ice skating rink on the southside of town.
Soak Up Oyster Season
While delicious comfort food may be on your mind all winter long, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a plate of oysters during oyster season. But make sure to get them while you can—plump, buttery oysters are harder to find in Houston once winter ends.
Check Out Your Local Farmers Market
The best part about living in Houston is that even when it gets cold, it’s still not that cold. For those who love venturing outside of the house to enjoy outdoor activities, head to your neighborhood farmers market for the perfect mid-morning outing. From Urban Harvest East Side Farmers Market to City Hall Farmers Market, there’s plenty of tasty treats and fresh produce to enjoy all year long in Houston.
