Some other options?

If you still are out of ideas to do in January (serious, wtf?), then maybe you can do some of these things that are good to do all year long: 

  • Visit a warm coffee shop (like one of these)
  • Walk, run, or bike (if you have one) along Buffalo Bayou
  • Visit Urban Harvest Farmers Market on Saturday mornings
  • People watch at Discovery Green
  • Take a stroll through nature at the Arboretum and say hi to the turtles
  • Catch a movie at River Oaks Theater 
  • Go shopping at Caninos Produce
  • Roll down the hill at Hermann Park
  • Catch a light show during sunset at Rice University's Turrell Light Exhibit
  • Visit the Contemporary Arts Museum
  • Go to The Menil Collection
  • Go on a Street Art Tour
  • Visit the Water Wall
  • Visit the Zen Gardens next to the Zoo
  • Free Yoga every Sunday at Spring Street Beer & Wine Garden
