Settled on the side of Lake Houston in Texas’ piney forests, Huffman’s history goes all the way back to 1839. The town is named after David Huffman, a soldier who came to the Lone Star State to fight against Mexico in the Texan Revolution. Soon, Huffman expanded into a proud, down-to-earth, semi-rural farming community. Today, the town is mostly residential, home mainly to those seeking a small-town escape from the fast pace of Houston. There’s a veterinary clinic in town to take care of your fur baby, with emergency services available in Humble.
Huffman isn’t the most pup-friendly place, but it is close to several cities that welcome wagging tails with open arms! You and your pooch can still sniff out some exercise options -- the track around the May Community Centre is a pawesome spot for a leashed walk. The good news is that the town boasts some fur-friendly eateries. Los Compadres caters to canine customers, and serves up the best Tex-Mex in town to boot. Be sure to try the Jalisco Asada! You might have to drive a bit to get the best for your buddy, but with a long enough leash, Huffman can be a great base camp for you and your pooch to romp fur-ther afield!
