Summer Fun 2012

Sure the weather is hot but summer means fun — whether you stay in Houston or plan some great getaways. During the month of May, we discuss a lot of ways to make summer in Houston more enjoyable. We look at ideas to stay cool, from air-conditioned museums to the best picnic spots, offer a guide to the summer's hottest movies, books (in paper, Kindle and e-book versions) and concerts (Nicki Minaj is on her way) and look at the best ideas to survive the heat in style. And how about getaways? Nearby spots like Galveston, San Antonio and New Orleans are on our minds, along with trips to cooler climbes like Vail. Got ideas? Tell us some of your favorite things to do in Houston in the summer and reveal your secrets to survival. Even though we love summer, we need all the help we can get.
