Having fun with the family and exploring Houston can be easy! If you have a few hours, we have ideas on how to spend them with the kids.
In this Half Day in Houston series, find a place to park, play, explore and eat… all in one spot. Pick what you like or combine with another Half Day post!
Find a free parking spot on 19th street or around the block. There is diagonal parking and parallel parking. Just obey they parking signs.
The old buildings on 19th Street have some of the cutest shops. The block before and a block after Maryam's Cafe have gift shops, art shops, clothing stores, resale shops and more. You will find lots of gifts, including funny coasters and mugs, Houston shirts and lots of cards!
Window shop or go inside!
Maryam's Cafe is like an old antique store where you can order coffee, juices, smoothies, ice cream, breakfast or lunch... and in the back there is a playroom for kids!
The only trouble with it is, how do you decide between playing in the back or sitting in the thrones (yes, king and queen thrones) in the front window?
Order lunch or just a drink and let the kids play!
