Cool July Events (for a Hot Houston Summer)

With the weather both hot and rainy this season, the unpleasant humidity has kept many of us inside. But for those of us on vacation, staying in the house all summer is not an acceptable way to spend our break. Fortunately, we live in an exciting city with abundant entertainment options. The professionals at Universal Home Experts know how important it is to leave the house – and connect with other people.

While it may be tempting to stay inside and binge on your favorite show, getting out with the family, with friends (or just by yourself) will add some excitement to your break. Even our licensed professionals need to get out into the city every once in a while and take in some culture! This week (and through the rest of the summer), put the smart phones, pads and computers away for a few hours – and engage.

We’ve found a wide variety of events for kids, adults and families.
