When you see families traveling with kids, you know that they’re really trying their best keep varying levels of chaos in check at all times. Traveling with kids becomes even harder when you deal with toddlers, but if you’re in Nassau Bay, TX, you are certainly in luck because of the sheer amount of cool things there are to do.
Nassau Bay is one of the jewels of an area of Texas known as Bay Area Houston. In essence, think of the area between Houston and Galveston right near the Texas Gulf Coast. Other cities make up the rest of Bay Area Houston, but Nassau Bay stands out simply because of its history. The city was actually a planned community back in the 1960s as NASA developed their space program. Employees of the burgeoning program, along with their families, called Nassau Bay home. This made the community small & quaint by default. As the community incorporated, changes in the population (beyond that of NASA employees) showed that this little haven in Harris County was quite a draw.
If you’ve got toddler in tow, an age sometimes referred to as “three-nagers”, finding things that are fun can be tough, especially if you’re not familiar with the area. Here’s what Nassau Bay has to offer:
Lake Nassau Park – Toddlers can sometimes be a little rambunctious, so keeping them close is essential. If you’d family enjoys fishing, you have Lake Nassau or Clear Creek as great options, or a simple picnic with the family may be the best way to keep everyone close but still enjoying nature.
Street Eatz Party – This is a family-friendly affair with free admission. The event is all about getting people together and celebrating community engagement. Live music, food trucks, and even a little beer & wine for the adults make this event very popular. The best part – it’s held twice a year.
Space Center Houston – Toddlers are small, which means when they see big, they really see something that blows their mind. A trip to Space Center Houston isn’t just big – it’s out of this world. Not only do you have great educational opportunities for kids of all ages, but there is a lot of room for exploration by little ones.
Kemah Boardwalk – It’s a little old-school, but how often can you share part of the fun of your own childhood? It’s like having your favorite carnival attractions in one place. Aside from the rides, families have access to all sorts of games, restaurants, and concerts.
Friday Fireworks – If your toddler is like other kids, big, bright explosions in the night sky are about as cool as anything ever! The fireworks are only available during the summer, which means you’ve got limited opportunities to check this out.
Finding fun things to do in Nassau Bay, TX, especially with toddlers, is actually really easy to do. The entire area not only takes pride in its commitment to preserving the natural beauty of this part of Texas; it’s also proud of making everything as family-friendly as possible. After all, It’s all about quality time with the kiddos, so no matter what you do, you’ll be making some super-sweet memories!
