Houston isn’t often thought about as being a place where there are bunch of outdoor activities, but that’s just because most people don’t want to go outside in 90+ degree weather, with a humidity level that I didn’t know existed before moving here. That being said, there is so much going on outside in Houston. If you’re brave enough to withstand the blistering sauna like heat of our great city, you can find so many things to do outside in Houston. We’ve got festivals, concerts, farmers and artisan markets, and some of the most beautiful urban green spaces in the country. Check out all of these cool things to do outside in Houston.
