Four Fun Day Trips in the Houston Area
“Hey, I was playing that!!” If you’e got kids, you’e more than likely heard this familiar refrain more than once, as another beautiful summer day gives way to another video game that simply must be played. At Robbins Nissan, located a short distance north from Houston in Humble, TX, we’e learned to meet this complaint the same way every time. “Fine, let’s take a road trip.” If you’re looking for a short getaway this summer, try one of these four fun day trips in the Houston area, courtesy of your friends at Robbins Nissan.
Old Town Spring, TX (15 minutes from Humble, TX) — While it certainly won’t take a day to get there, you could easily spend a day ambling about town. With oer 150 old shops full of art and antiques recalling the town’s history as a railroad and frontier town, you won’t lack for things to see, including places rumored to be haunted and a bank that was reportedly robbed by Bonnie and Clyde.
Galeston, TX (About an hour from Humble, TX) — Although this is the unquestioned destination for a beach trip, there’s more to do here than just bake in the sun. Visit its famous downtown district, The Strand, for great shopping, food and history. And then, after all that, go on ahead and hit the Schlitterbahn.
Orange and Port Arthur, TX (About two hours from Humble, TX) — The easternmost part of Texas is home to some of its greatest curiosities. Great museums include the Museum of the Gulf Coast and the Stark Museum of Art, and many terrific festials and cultural events occur here year round.
Brenham, TX (About 1 ½ hours from Humble, TX) — This little gem may be small, but she is mighty. With the Bluebonnet Trails showcasing the area’s terrific wildflowers and the Maifest German heritage festial just two of the local charms, there are many terrific things to do here. Don’t forget to get ice cream at Blue Bell!
Of course, the best way to have a great road trip is in a great car, and that’s where Robbins Nissan comes in. Stop by to see our full inventory of terrific new and used vehicles to make these summer trips the best you’e had yet!
