It’s a scorcher out there – and when we say scorcher, we mean eggs-on-the-sidewalk, melted hangers in the car, heat rising from the sidewalk hot.

Yeah, yeah, we know summer is all about family time and getting out to experience the outdoors, but let’s be real: once in awhile, we need a brief escape from the blazing sun.

In the interests of providing our kids/friends/loved ones a good time without passing out of dehydration, we turn to good ol’ indoor entertainment. We don’t’ mean run-of-the-mill bowling alleys either! Houston is chock-full of fun, thrilling, and (often) kid-friendly attractions sure to distract everyone from those sunburns (TOLD YOU they needed SPF 50!)

So strap the kids in the backseat, avoid the hot metal of the seatbelt at all costs, and enjoy one of these Houstonian gems!
