3 Ways To Beat The Houston Heat

Winning the summer in Houston is a matter of smart planning. After you have enjoyed a few dips in The Ranch at Shadow Lakes' pools, head out on an adventure to one of these fun destinations that'll be sure to help you beat the Houston heat.

Find your go-to swimming hole

Classic swimming holes and hangouts are just a short drive away from downtown. Twin Lakes Scuba Park is a great start to your summer adventure. Situated on 31-acres, this clear aquifer-fed pool is a favorite of scuba divers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. While serious scuba divers use it as a training ground, casual swimmers and families can enjoy the floating docks, picnic tables, overnight campsites and snack bar. Entry is only $5 for non-divers and Twin Lakes is just 20 minutes south of the city. Click here to check out their hours of operation and other amenities.

Get cultured

If you're going to spend your time indoors this summer, spend a few hours at any one of Houston's 19 museums and cultural organizations located in the city's world-renowned Museum District. Every one of Houston's museums offers something for the whole family. Enjoy trendy art? Check out The Menil Collection. Want to take your kids along? The Houston Museum of Natural Science is perfect for the young ones as it has a live butterfly center and a planetarium. Click here to see when each Houston museum offers free admission. Did we mention that there is air conditioning?!

Indulge in ice cream

Strategically eating your way through a hot, Houston summer isn't a bad option. Let your sweet tooth help you take a bite out of the long season with a trip to Sweet Cup Gelato.
