Summertime is family time, and a nice day trip is a great way to bond.

If Houston is close, then you should take a day and go downtown to experience Discovery Green.

The name suggests an environmentally friendly place, and it is. From recycling Saturdays, to Discovery Green Flea presented by Green Mountain Energy, they are passionate, and committed to a conservation routine.

There's also a lake inside the park where you and sail and kayak. Plus, plenty of shows and concerts.

Hit the web and see what the park has to offer you and your family.
