Fun things to do in Texas

With schools closed for the remainder of the school year, it's even more important that we look for fun things to keep us entertained, and ideally get us outdoors. Lots of outdoor businesses will now start to open back up but we'll still need to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Get Outside & Enjoy Texas!
