Tucked between the hustle and bustle of Houston, and the sandy beaches of the Texas Gulf Coast, lies Alvin; a charming southern town with humble beginnings dating back to 1845. Here, visitors will find historical sites, antique style shopping and family-friendly adventures. Step back into time and learn about the city’s history by visiting the museums and historical sites.
Feeling a bit adventuress, guests can get up close and see over 500 different animals from over 19 different countries at the Bayou Wildlife Zoo. You can feed different animals while going through over 80 acres through a safari-like adventure. Don’t forget to visit the petting zoo after your safari tour.
For a real treat, stop by Froberg’s Farm for pick-your-own strawberries- the picking season typically starts in mid-January and ends in late May. In the fall, the farm puts on a Fall Festival and offers a corn maze for the kids. Save some time to shop the Froberg’s Country Store, which offers homegrown fruits and vegetables, along with pies, jams, peanut brittle, and other treats.
