Park
“Bike along Buffalo Bayou With miles of urban bike trails, it turns out that Houston is a great place to work up a sweat. One of the best spots in town for this is along Buffalo Bayou through Eleanor Tinsley Park. Ride the curvy trails over hills and old-fashioned bridges into downtown and back, enjoying a view of the skyline along the way. If you don't have your own bike, rent one from one of the many Houston bicycle stations in the area (that will cost you money, though). You can also go for a jog, or enjoy a leisurely stroll. ”

“Great running trails, biking, walking, and running around. Festivals and live music happen occasionally, there are canoe and kayak tours, and a bayou boat ride tour. The park runs all along the bayou and runs into downtown. Super cool skate park on one end, and lots of room for running with your kids and dogs, pack a picnic and have a good time. Check out the Waugh Street Bridge and Bat colony, too - it's a sight to behold!”

“Browse the Contemporary Arts Museum Speaking of art, there's more to be seen at the Contemporary Arts Museum. Two floors of exhibits make up this free art museum in Houston, with each displaying works by local, regional, and international artists. Located one block west of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, it's always a worthy stop while you're in the Houston Museum District ”

“To memorialize fallen Houston City Police Department officers, the sculpture is peacefully tucked into a crook in the bayou, where intentional grass softens the edges of its stark figure, overlooking the best angles of both the city skyline and the Federal Reserve building, forever watching over Houston. Stop on your way downtown along the multi-use paths of Eleanor Tinsley park for some iconic pictures and local history. ”
