Katy, Texas will always have the small town atmosphere that I remember growing up. Even though the big city living is inching it’s way into town, there is still so much charm and fun that makes this town that I grew up in so great!
Katy, Texas Staycation Ideas
So if you’re looking for staycation ideas or simply find yourself in my little town this summer, be sure you check out these great places to explore in Katy, Texas!
The Katy Playstation Park or as everyone in town call it…the Train Park is the state’s largest innovative playground for multiple-impaired and profoundly deaf children. It was built with every child in mind so they can all come out and play. There are ramps and swings for children with physical disabilities, as well as climbing equipment for those without. Every child can have fun at the Katy Playstation park! It really is a great place that is always filled with laughter and smiles!
Explore a little military history at the Katy Veterans Memorial Museum, otherwise known as “The G.I. Joe Muesum”. Learn about every foreign conflict involving the United States all packed into one museum that is run by our military veterans. Without them, this museum would not be here for us to learn from, so please stop by, visit and learn something new.
Coming from a military veterans wife, I know the sacrifices our men and women make while serving their country. My husband served in Iraq from 2003-2004 and while he may be home, we still live with the after effects of war. See my experience on Living with PTSD and show your support for our brave men and women, but visiting the Katy Veterans Memorial Museum. (admission is free.)
The MKT (Missouri-Kansas-Texas) Depot is a great place to visit and learn even more information about the City of Katy. The original depot was restored a few years ago and offers a great place to visit or simply stop by to grab brochures and maps of town.
They even have original elements and explain how the Depot operated as a passenger rail service in Katy until 1957. It’s pretty cool that we used to have passenger service right here in our little town…wish I could have experienced that! Don’t you?
Shop until you drop at Katy Mills Mall! It’s filled with everything from high end stores like, Saks Off 5th and Coach (my favorite store) to stores where you can shop for less and still look great like, Ross and Marshalls! It’s a place for everyone to shop and offers deep discount prices since they offer outlet prices!
