Comments Off on What is open in Houston TX during the coronavirus? Part 1

The beautiful and bustling city of Houston, TX, has been hit hard by the coronavirus, like most cities in the country, and it’s been hard to keep up with the new rules and guidelines and figure out which businesses are still operating right now. In this article, we are going to explore a little bit about what is open in Houston, TX, during the coronavirus.


Museums are a fantastic way to distract ourselves from the outside world, learn new things, and explore different interests. For months the museums in Houston have been closed, and I’m sure a huge amount of people have been missing their weekend visit, especially if you have kids. Most of the museums are opening back up though, albeit with stricter rules, such as prebooking tickets and mask usage, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a great day out. Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Children’s Museum of Houston are just a couple of options at this time.


Because a lot of places can only have a limited capacity or have no inside customers at all, a lot of coffee shops are still not able to open. However, there is always Starbucks to fall back on. Of course, being able to support a small business is the preferred choice, but for those times where you need your caffeine fix, Starbucks is on hand. You can only order for delivery or use the drive-thru at the majority of stores in the city.


Bowling is a great pastime for many, and one of the most popular ways that friends and family can hang out. So if you’re missing the bowling lanes, then head to locations such as Del Mar Lanes, Emerald Bowl, or Armadilla Lanes II for the usual food, drinks, and arcade games in between matches. Book your tickets in advance and always wear a mask.


There is nothing quite like southern food, the food in this part of the country is famous the world over, and no doubt most people have been missing being able to dine out and have some real comfort food. The good news is that you can now give yourself a break from the kitchen as more and more restaurants are slowly opening. We cannot name them all, as you know there are a myriad of places in the city, however, we have listed some of the top ones for your convenience. Despite them being open, not every restaurant can offer dine-in, so be sure to call in advance to check if they are only doing takeout or delivery.
