My Favorite Spring Time Activities in Houston

Hello, Spring! Are you there? Yes, it is… Today is the first official day of Spring–or at least that’s what the meteorological calendar says. We’re in Texas, so we really don’t know. Anyway, read on more to find out my favorite spring time activities in Houston!

And, in Houston, things are even worse! Houston is one of the most moody cities that I’ve ever lived in. One day we have torrential storms, the next day it’s halter tops and BBQing by the pool.

If I have a favorite season, Spring is definitely it. It’s a time of anew: renewed positivity, fresh starts, and personal growth. In this blog, I’ve enumerated all of the little things that I love about Spring in Houston, Texas!

Spring Time Activities: Fashion

Spring brings with it the acceptability of wearing halter tops, rompers, daisy dukes and sundresses without people looking at you like you are crazy. Also, you have the widest range of shoe options. You can pair an outfit with flip flops, sandals, wedges, heels… The possibilities are really endless. Then, there’s the accessorizing: sunglasses, belts, watches, bracelets, and hair adornment. I’m getting excited just talking about it.

Patio Dining in Spring Weather

As if I didn’t have enough excuses to visit Houston’s premier dining and cocktail venues… Warm weather means we should all be outdoors with a drink in hand. If you’re into people watching and patio dining, then I recommend Memorial City’s City Centre, Sugar Land’s First Colony Mall, or Downtown’s Axelrad Beer Garden . These spots allow for easy bar hopping, as well as sophisticated bites. These are perfect options for a business luncheon, date night , just going out with the girls.

Spring Time Activities: Parties

This is the best time to throw a party. The weather is typically just right! Whether it’s a backyard BBQ, a fancy themed tea party, or just parlaying by the pool… I love it all. Being under the veil of direct sunlight just does something so miraculous to my soul. Parties mean food, so you know you have to come with your A game! People will definitely talk about you if you’re host to a party with bad food! Having been in Houston for so long, I feel that I’ve mastered all of the best party dishes. If I’m trying to show out, Crawfish is by far my favorite menu item. If I’m wanting something easy and relaxed, I love to do a loaded nacho bar. Cold beer and food. Side note: Spring socials are a great way to meet people in a relaxed setting. So, if you’re an introvert like me, spring is your season boo!

Outdoor Attractions

As Spring approaches, Texans begin to prepare for all of the upcoming attractions. My favorite are Mardi Gras, the Houston Rodeo, and all of the concerts at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. In Texas, events like these are a low key fashion shows. Think stylish, but functional enough to still move around. My typical attire for outdoorsy events is usually blue jean shorts, a pair cowboy boots or wedges, and a cute tank. Oh, and don’t sleep on all of the great parks! My favorite are Discovery Green and Herman Park. These are great for relaxed fun in the sun with friends. Check out a listing of Houston’s most up to date festivals for the year.

    I love spring – mostly for the same reasons as you – outfits, social gatherings, eating. It’s so cold in Canada and I’ll very much prefer to have spring right now.

    I’m in va and it’s equally as Moody. We had snow last week now it’s in the 60s. However reading this just made me even more excited about spring than the time change has. I look forward to patio dining and brunches

    My favorite thing about Spring is also fashion! The outfits that can be worn are truly endless. Also I hate being confined to a heavy jacket and boots. Warm weather is definitely my thing!
