One of Texas’s best-kept secrets, Montgomery County is north of Houston, with a booming population that has grown more than fifty-percent since 2000. For active residents, George Mitchell Preserve is the ideal spot, offering hiking and biking through gorgeous trails. If you have kids, expect to hear them begging for a trip to Woodlands Children’s Museum for a day of imaginative play and interactive exhibits. See majestic creatures up close at Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary and then cool off from the summer heat at Big Rivers Waterpark, which features waterslides, splash pads, a lazy river, and Texas’ most massive play structure.
