Houston with Kids. About one-quarter of the city’s population is under 18, which explains why many of the city’s amenities welcome all ages. While some upscale eateries frown on toddlers at the table, most eateries offer booster seats and friendly smiles to families. Some even have crayons and games to occupy little ones. There are dozens of water parks, adventure centers and sport courts for tots to teens, plus nighttime events that cater to young visitors.
If you’re staying at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown Houston, you’re just a short walk or car ride away from some of the city’s best tourist destinations for kids. Here’s an example of a one-day itinerary packed with children’s activities that will please even the pickiest group.
Afraid that’s too much for your tot? Break up the list into a few days, with poolside relaxing and walks in the park between major events. If you’re an on-the-go family determined to hit every stop, just pop back to the Magnolia for an afternoon nap between the museum and dinner and you can do it all in 16 hours. That gives mom or dad plenty of time to relax in the room – or unwind with a glass of vino in The Lounge before tackling the rest of your kid-centric day.
