Texas’ small town of Stafford is located just outside of Houston in Fort Bend County. With only about 18,000 permanent residents, it’s a small town, but it offers a surprising amount of things to do. From its humble beginnings with a single cane mill and a horse-powered cotton gin in the early 19th century, Stafford has grown into an economically and industrially significant town as it houses corporations such as Texas Instruments, Tyco, and the United Parcel Service. Visiting Stafford serves as a great way to get out of Houston without having to travel too far.
One of the most impressive architectural and cultural gems of the Stafford area is without a doubt the BAPS Shri. Swaminarayan Mandir, a huge Hindi temple that looks like it’s been taken right out of India. Be sure to abide by all rules and regulations before showing up, including the women’s dress code.
Stafford is home to a few great options when it comes to natural green spaces. If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, head to Cullinan Park, which boasts widlflowers, spectacular views, and some walking trails; or the Kitty Hollow Park, which is another great spot with a pond and plenty of space for kids, dogs, and picnics.
To get a true taste of Texas, head to the Red Neck Country Club. Don’t think they’re trying to be cheeky or ironic -- this is truly a red neck country club. Pay an entrance fee and treat yourself to their buffet as you sit back and listen to live local country music and make friends with friendly strangers.
When it comes to the arts, Stafford knows how to put on a show. Visit the Stafford Center (or the Performing Arts Theater and Convention Center) for events all year round. You can also visit the AMC fountains for a nice movie night, and the Fort Bend Theater where you can enjoy plays, dances, and concerts.
As with most places in the American South, visiting Houston can be pretty brutal in the summer months. For that reason, we recommend visiting between September and May. The winter can get a bit cold, but the prices on everything from accommodations to tours will be less expensive.
