Family Fun in Sugar Land


Between school and busy schedules, spending quality family time together may be challenging, but in Sugar Land, it's easy! With most of Sugar Land's attractions, retail and dining destinations within a 10-minute drive of each other, you spend less time in the car and more time having fun!

At the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land, blast away to outer space at the Space Science exhibit, pretend to be a paleontologist at the Dig Pit or discover the mysteries of Earth throughout the museum. During the month of September the museum is hosting a Scavenger Hunt! Let your youngster explore the pollinator garden and claim a museum souvenir once they've found six or more flowers and plants from this list.

Kids can enjoy hands-on fun at the Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center located in historic Sugar Land. Visitors can participate in five highly immersive exhibits: Amazingly Immature, How Does it Work?, Tot Spot and Kidtropolis, USA. Children can explore the city and take roles at one of the local businesses, including the market, diner and much more. This realistic environment provides authentic opportunities to engage families. 

How about some good old-fashioned competitive fun? Sugar Land boasts a wide selection of over 27 parks where families can play pick-up games of soccer, softball, broomball and more! Visitors can also try out "cool" indoor excitement at the Sugar Land Ice and Sports Center where having fun is a breeze. Lace-up those skates and enjoy this winter activity all year long. Never skated before? No problem. Skate for fun during public sessions or enroll in skating sessions in advance to perfect the art of figure skating.

If you’re here for baseball season between April and September then you’re in for a treat beyond baseball at Constellation Field! Join the crowd for a family-friendly game and watch the Sugar Land Space Cowboys play America's favorite sport. Besides baseball, families can also delight in amenities like the space-themed playground and splash pad. Adults and kids can try their batting skills in the simulated baseball experience at Moonshot Alley.

Excessive amounts of fun, pretend-play and family activities can make you really hungry! Lucky for you, Sugar Land has a handful of family-friendly restaurants to choose from. The city has a variety of global cuisines on the menu like Japanese, Vietnamese, Tex-Mex American and beyond. Whether you are a fan of pizza, tacos, ice-cream or want to try an amazing local dessert the “Sweetest City” has what your taste buds are craving.
