10 Places for a Dad and Daughter Date Night in Houston

dadanddaughterdatenightFathers are an integral part of their daughters’ lives. Much of what girls learn about men and their interactions with them will be shaped by the relationship she has with her father. That’s why it’s so important for dads to take a proactive role in the lives of their little girls. For dads in the Houston area looking to treat their daughters to an evening out on the town, these are ten of the places you won’t want to miss.

1. Potter’s Wheel

The Potter’s Wheel is a great place for a bit of creative fun during father-daughter bonding time. Break out the paintbrushes and put on your creative caps to make mementos you’ll both treasure for a lifetime to commemorate a special evening.

2. Build-a-Bear Workshop

There’s just something about a teddy bear that makes little one’s hearts sing. Take the time to pick out and create the perfect bear together, choosing the right accessories so that your little girl has a stuffed friend to share her secrets with and the memory of a great night with Dad.

3. Silverado IMAX Houston

When you hit the town as a father-daughter duo, a movie theater may not be the first thing that comes to mind. While there may not be much time for talking, being able to see a movie she’s chosen with the most important man in her life is an experience your daughter won’t soon forget.

4. Blue Willow Bookshop

Spend some time with your daughter while helping to foster a love of reading by stopping in to visit the Blue Willow Bookshop, one of Houston’s best and most beloved independent booksellers. Browse the shelves and pick up a few new tomes for both of you while getting a better idea of what your little girl is interested in and the books that she loves most.

5. Lunar and Planetary Institute

Encouraging girls to become more involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematic) fields is an important part of parenting, as women represent a relatively small portion of careers in these fields and budding interest in girls isn’t always nurtured. Visiting Houston’s Lunar and Planetary Institute is more than an opportunity to gaze at the stars while spending a bit of quality time together; it’s also a chance to foster an interest in the sciences.

6. Downtown Aquarium

With an amusement park, aquarium and restaurant on-site, the Downtown Aquarium is a one-stop-shop for all your father-daughter date night needs. Grab dinner, have fun at the park and see the wonders of the sea, all without ever leaving Houston.

7. Miller Outdoor Theatre

The Miller Outdoor Theatre season runs from March through November in Hermann Park, offering free performances by the Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Symphony and the Houston Ebony Opera Guild, just to name a few. Spend the evening experiencing the music or a theatrical performance with your daughter, giving her a chance to appreciate the arts while spending time with her Dad.

8. Tea for Two

If your daughter is a fan of tea parties and all things dainty, why not take her out for a real-life tea party? Tea for Two even offers dress-up tea parties for larger groups, but you’ll need to make an early evening of it, as the tearoom closes at six on weeknights and is only open for lunch on weekends.

9. The Chocolate Bar

While it’s important to foster good dietary habits in young children, it’s also a good idea to indulge their sweet tooth from time to time. What better way to make a special occasion of spending an evening with your little girl than to visit this chocolate-filled heaven?

10. Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream

Everyone loves ice cream, and taking your daughter out for a cup or cone of her favorite Ben and Jerry’s concoction is a great way to bond over a sweet treat. The wacky flavor names are sure to bring a smile to your daughter’s face, and the franchise is famous for its delicious offerings.
