Budget-Friendly Fun In Houston

Fun In The Park

You just checked your ticket, and you still haven’t won the lottery. That means you’re still on a budget. That’s OK, though. Being on a budget isn’t bad when you live in Houston. That’s because the city has all kinds of fun budget-friendly things to do. In fact, these activities are free. Talk about budget-friendly fun.

Discovery Green

Discovery Green sits on 12 acres in downtown Houston. You can perch atop one of the slopes to enjoy views of downtown, or you can head over to the pond to relax. There is also a Model Boat Pond and a jogging trail. Oh, and don’t forget about Fido. The park is fitted with dog runs and fountains.

Now, the best part of Discovery Green does cost a little bit of money, but it’s worth it. You can rent a golf cart that is full of equipment. You can try your hand at horseshoes or play a little croquet using the equipment in the golf cart. This is the perfect way to have some affordable family fun.

Glenwood Cemetery

While you might not normally go to a cemetery for fun, Glenwood Cemetery is well worth a visit. This iconic cemetery draws in locals and tourists alike, and you can easily spend an hour or so here, looking at the gorgeous monuments. The cemetery also provides a sweeping view of the city’s skyline. Bring your camera with you and snap some panoramic pictures of the skyline.
