You’ve spent months and months planning the perfect family vacation and then it happens. Rain. Unfortunately, you can’t control Mother Nature, but you can control whether or not your family vacation is a fun time or a flop.
Visit a Museum
Museums provide a great indoor option that helps focus young minds on something other than the rain. In The Woodlands, we have a fabulous Children’s Museum that encourages learning through fun activities like hands-on science experiments and Mad Hatter tea parties. The resort is also only a short 30-minute drive to one of the most diverse cultural centers in the nation, Houston’s Museum District.
Family Game Time
Believe it or not, rain does not mean you are forced to stay in your room. Many hotel front desks have board games you can borrow. And why not play your games in one of the hotel libraries, lounge areas or lobby? At the Woodlands Resort we have a game room complete with Foosball table. Take advantage of the rain to spend some fun quality family time together.
Go to the Theater
Movies are a good way to pass the time when it rains, but think about asking the hotel about live performances in the area as well. You may be surprised about the entertainment offerings available to your family. Class Act Productions and Stage Right Productions offer year-round entertainment for The Woodlands and surrounding areas.
Play In the Rain
If you can’t beat them, join them. Obviously, if there is lightning or severe weather conditions this one’s out. But if not, go have some fun. Gear up. Splash around. Explore. There is nothing more fun for a kid then having permission to get messy. So, let your inner child out and go enjoy the rain!
