There is always plenty of stuff to do in Houston during April. Since it’s still a few days before the humid summer arrives, you can have a splendid time enjoying outdoor activities.

 A trip to the San Jacinto battleground is my recommendation. It's great for a couple, a group of rambunctious teens, or a gaggle of active adults looking for excitement, entertainment and some serious fun in H-town.

Things To Do With A Group

This month is your chance to do what every self-respecting Texan should do at least once in their life, visit the San Jacinto battleground. There is plenty to see and do. It's more than enough to keep any size group busy on a daytrip.

San Jacinto State Park
  • San Jacinto Monument
  • Battleship San Jacinto
  • San Jacinto Battleground Site
  • Crosby-Lynchburg Ferry
A ride of over 400ft to the top of the monument, that’s billed as the world's tallest war memorial , will allow you to see the entire beautiful view and serene atmosphere of the park all at once. If you’re short on time, take a quick visit to the battleship. Or try meandering around on foot or vehicle through the state park, if you like.
Here’s some other important details on the San Jacinto State Park you should know:
   Entrance Fees:
  • Adult: Free 
  • Child 12 Years and Under : Free 
  • Group - Adult: Contact the Park
  • Hours:

  • Open daily except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 
  • Battleground 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. 
  • Museum of History 9 a.m – 6 p.m. 
  • Monument and Observation Floor 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The park is conveniently located a short 35 mile jaunt from downtown Houston. It makes a nice half hour ride anytime of year. I’d put it on my list of places to visit for Saturday getaways for Houston couples.
