Park
“Delightfully cooler than most of Texas during the unrelenting Summer, it hosts a myriad of trails and routes so you never have to walk the same way twice. It feels like you’re in a forest even though the city is all around you. The perfect spot to watch storm clouds gather, or the sun slipping under the tree line. Plus it has more Poké-stops than any one place should have.”

Bar
“So much more than just a golf complex, Topgolf offers something for every single person in your travel group, making it a great choice if you do have someone who’s a golf fanatic. Top golf mixes technology with fun, and gives the golfers high-tech, climate-controlled hitting bays, while it gives everyone else awesome food, a great bar, live music, lounges and more. It’s almost like a fun entertainment complex, that just so happens to also have golf!”
