Fall Guide Sugar Land TX

Hi friends,

We know that all seasons are beautiful, but there is just something about fall that really gets us going. It gives us a chance to reconnect with friends and family through holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Also, during the fall season, there are plenty of fun things to do in Houston with kids! You can take them to a local farm or visit a farmers' market, go on a hike or play at the park, or attend one of the city's many kid-friendly festivals or events.

So, whether you’re looking for the best place to roast marshmallows, carve pumpkins, or simply enjoy the great outdoors this autumn, we’re here to help with some great fall activities and places you can visit during the season!

Drive through the Fall foliage

Just less than three hours' drive from downtown Houston, this park is an excellent location for spotting foliage and enjoying a weekend getaway from the city. Also, there are 81 campsite options and activities such as hiking or biking in 9 miles of trails, fishing, swimming, bouldering, and picnicking.

Enchanted Rock State Park is just 4 hours from Sugar Land, Texas. Visitors can hike 11 miles of trails, camp, bird watch, rock-climb, and stargaze there. The park also displays some foliage in the fall along with wildflowers in the spring.

Get Lost in Corn Maze

Froberg's Farm is a friendly destination, just 34 minutes away from this city. As you walk through the Corn Maze, you'll get a sense of the vast fields and have fun finding your way out.

If you're up for a little drive and looking for a fun-filled adventure, check out Rocky Creek Maze. It's two hours from Houston and has more than two and a half miles of paths winding through an 8-acre field of corn—and if you make it through the maze, you can try their haunted trail!
