With summer coming to an end, we have made a list of four family-fun adventures for you and your family to experience before school is back in session. Be sure to check out Bayou Wildlife Park, Froberg’s Farms, the Alvin Historical Musuem, and the Tom Blakeney Trail.
Bayou Wildlife Park
Explore the zoo with an experienced guide from the comfort of a tram. Journey along through 80 acres while seeing more than 400 animals, reptiles, and birds. You will see all types of deer, antelopes, buffaloes, camels, zebras, and more exotic animals that you can feed form the tram in an up-close encounter.
Famously known for “Pick your own strawberries” during the spring, this family-owned farm has something to offer all year-round. During the summer you can purchase home-grown fruits and vegetables at their Froberg’s County Store. The farm also has a variety of different kid-friendly activities.
