Hockley, TX is a 10-minute drive west on 290 from Cypress, and this quaint town boasts some excellent attractions for family fun! Enjoy date night or family movie night at the Showboat Drive-In, a retro spot for double features best viewed from the tailgate of your pickup truck. Or, enjoy a picnic lunch at the Oil Ranch, a real working ranch with more than 50 acres of amusements and activities for the entire family.

Head just a few more miles down 290 and visit Waller, one of the last great rural escapes in the Houston area. It’s home to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park – a campsite that’s a hit with tourists and locals alike looking to escape the Texas summer. Enjoy floating the lazy river while the kids play on the water slides! Waller also hosts a county fair at the start of fall, hit the golf course or the tennis court at Houston Oaks Country Club, and enjoy a wine tour of Waller County – an event you will not want to miss!
