All Aboard! New Hours for Houston Trains & Dr Pepper Plant

Here's an update to my book 100+ Activities for Houston Kids. The free train rides are a big hit for kids and parents. HALS train rides open in March and will have longer hours to fit your families' needs. YEAH! Since this event is only once a month, March - November, mark your calendars now for a great train expedition. Here's the HALS schedule.

Saturday, March 17, 9 am - 3 pm
Saturday, April 21, 9 am - 3 pm
Saturday, May 19, 9 am - 3 pm
Saturday, June 16, 9 am - 1 pm
Saturday, July 21, 9 am - 1 pm
Saturday, August 18, 9 am - 1 pm
Saturday, Sept 15, 9 am - 1 pm
Saturday, Oct. 20, 9 am - 3 pm
Saturday, Nov. 17, 9 am - 3 pm

Admission to the park and train rides are free. For more information, please visit Thanks to Diane S. for keeping us updated!

Another update: I'm sad to report that the Dr Pepper Plant in Houston is no longer giving tours. Ugh. (See page 57 in 100+ Activities for Houston Kids.) This was one of my favorites because I love this bubbly drink. If "You're a Pepper" like me, consider a visit to the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco, TX... maybe on the way to Austin. This would be a fun Spring Break or summer trip. Speaking of which, if you haven't purchased your copy of my book, order yours today and get the whole family excited about Spring Break and summer vacation time.

Until the next nap time...
