3 Exciting and Healthy Trips for the Family
By Virginia Laird
Living in The Woodlands gives you a variety of places to go and things to see this summer. Many of these adventures can be healthy ones. While you may think you have explored every area around you, there is much fun to be had throughout the summer and a great deal of it can keep your health and wellness on point. The healthy things to choose from include:
- Make a trip to the zoo
- Plan a day trip to the Kemah Boardwalk
- Head to a water park
Make a Trip to the Zoo
The Houston zoo is just a short drive south on I-45. This is one of the best in Texas. If you have never been, it is certainly something to give a try. While at the zoo everyone in your party is certain to get in some great exercise. Research suggests that those who spend the day at the zoo walking average at least three miles of exercise. This can be a more exciting way to getting in your steps rather than walking trips around an empty track. If you are looking to have a little fun getting your exercise, a trip to the zoo is a great way to get it done.
Plan a Day Trip to the Kemah Boardwalk
Have you ever spent a day at the Kemah Boardwalk? This is such a fun place to visit. It is like none other. While spending time there you can do some shopping, visit the few rides there, spend time outdoors, and get a nice healthy walk. As a novelty attraction in southern Texas, it can provide a quick mini-vacation. While spending time with your family there, everyone is sure to reap the healthy benefits of being outdoors. A few benefits include:
- Soaking up Vitamin D
- A boost to your cardio system through walking
- Spending time in the fresh air can boost your immune system
If you are looking for something fun and healthy for your family, consider a trip to the Kemah Boardwalk.
Head to a Water Park
Do you love water parks? Houston has plenty of water parks from which to choose. Spending time in a water park can prove to be healthy for all. Anyone who has been to a water park knows firsthand how active everyone will be while there. At the end of your time there, you and your family will have gotten much exercise, experienced a decreased level of stress, and be ready to tackle whatever lies ahead.
As you can see, the surrounding areas of The Woodlands offers you with endless possibilities and healthy activities for the whole family. Make the most of your summer by beginning to plan your healthy day trips. Have fun!
