The Health Museum’s “Make a Day of It” program takes much of the thinking out of planning an activity by including everything you need for an afternoon out. The Spring Break edition starts off with a visit to the museum's exhibit GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes, followed by a picnic in the park and a scenic bike ride on a BCycle bike. Your admission ticket includes general admission to the museum, a picnic basket, and BCycle vouchers. Just make sure you book in advance. How much easier can it get?

With sunnier days (remember to change your clocks on March 14), there’s no better time to enjoy the outdoor and green spaces Houston has to offer. Have a picnic, ride bikes, or take walks in Houston’s many parks, enjoy the city’s farmers markets, or take a day trip to Houston’s nearby state parks and beaches.
