The drive to Spring is approximately 20 miles north of Houston on I-45, on which the first thing your kids or grandkids will spy is Wet N’ Wild Splashtown water park. Grown people might not necessarily make the trip for this purpose, but the kids will love you for it! With 53 acres of water fun, rides, pools, and a lazy river, it’s perfect for a hot Texas spring/summer day. As an adult, you might take more pleasure in seeing the Cypresswood Golf Course – a 36-hole public course with numerous accolades to its name.

If you’re traveling to Spring in winter (get it?!), you’ll be delighted to see that Old Town Spring becomes an amazing display of Christmas lights mixed with family festivities, so mark your calendars for that! And of course in the season it was named for (perhaps…or maybe it was the other way around. After all, this is Texas) the town is famous for its annual Texas Crawfish & Music Festival, which is coming up on April 29 and 30 this year.

Seasonal joking aside, Spring, Texas has so much to offer in the way of outdoorsmanship, including Gourley Nature Trail, which is quite the hotspot for walkers/hikers. Situated in Meyer Park, which is 180 acres in total, it’s a half-mile, asphalt-topped walking trail connecting the park to Collins Park which sits on the banks of Cypress Creek. Both parks offer recreational facilities, playground equipment, and a trail system, and Collins offers fishing opportunities along the creek. Collins Park also houses a sand volleyball court, an amphitheater, a skate park, a canoe launch, and a natural-surface off-road bicycling trail.
