C5 Fest 5 - things to do?

For the Texas guys what all is there to do in the area (kid related)? Please pass along suggestions for a 2 and 4 yr old. Debating whether or not to turn this into a mini vacation

You can get a fun swamp boat ride in Orange, about 80 miles east of Baytown. It's a lot of fun if you've never been up close to alligators or an air boat. Fun for all ages.

Museum district. In one area you've got the Zoo, Hermann Park, Museum of Natural Science (dinosaurs & stuff), Children's museum (my 2 year old LOVES it) and a few others. Good food in the area, as well.

If you're into baseball, the Astros are awful, but their stadium is nice!

Glad you brought this up.

The Astros play the Mariners on Sunday at 1pm. It would be great to see a bunch of Camaros show up for the game. Tickets are easy to get outside the stadium so just show up and go if you can make it.

If you plan on going to Kemah expect tons of traffic and long lines. For the kids Space Center is awesome! Downtown Houston is only 25-30 minutes from Baytown so everything in Houston is within driving distance.
