Recreational Activities

May in Houston is the perfect time to get outside. Head down to Bayou Bend, the Discovery Green, or the Museum District, which is home to The Museum of Fine Arts, The Menil Collection, Cockrell Butterfly Center, Houston Museum of Natural Science, and more. If you are feeling adventurous, NASA Space Center and the Kemah Boardwalk are just a short drive outside of Houston.
