Visiting Houston attractions was a great experience for me. Although I could not cover all of them, I could still manage to visit the major and new attractions and family adventures. Some were really unique that I think cannot be seen anywhere else in this world, while some were quite thrilling. No matter whatever the attractions are, they all never fail to satisfy and mesmerize the visitors. Now, I will tell you about the Houston attractions that I visited.
I started my trip from the downtown where Houston Waterfront Park was my first attraction to visit. It is a grand 23-acre park with verdant landscape and refreshing atmosphere. The recently built Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade is a great expanse along the banks of Buffalo Bayou wherein you can take the benefit of the jogging and biking trails and the notable group of pedestrian bridges linking the north and south bayou sides. Next, the Houston Zoo is a unique zoo with over 4,500 animals, a tropical bird zone, the small and big cat houses, vast series of reptiles, the Wortham World of Primates, a rain forest, natural habitats, and the Children’s Zoo holding many farm animals. The timings are daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
Then, I headed towards the Clear Lake area where the Kemah Boardwalk was really attractive and unique among all the Houston attractions. Both a waterfront dining stop and a weekend holiday spot, the walkway is simply at a distance of 20 miles from the downtown. But, the main attraction here is the Aquarium Restaurant that allures each visitor with its 50,000 gallon aquarium full of marine animals. Other attractions are the Flying Dutchman and Saltgrass Steakhouse.
After this, it was time for some fun and so I explored the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Water Park at Galveston. It is a grand new park that throughout the year offers four tube slides, three speed slides, three kids’ zones with a myriad of varied play essentials and pint-sized slides, an isolated beach, a hot tub, and the Torrent® Tidal Wave River. In addition, the Surfenburg area has 16 water attractions such as two mounting water coasters, a wave lagoon, three beaches, three slides, the Tiki Tikes kids’ area, the Boogie Bahn surf ride, two family raft rides, and three rivers.
The extraordinary museum in Houston is what I visited next called the Museum of Natural Science that has an outstanding exhibit of mineral varieties, a dinosaur carcass, space-station replicas, a planetarium, an IMAX theater, and a six storey butterfly centre where many colorful butterflies can be spotted. The museum is on the Hermann Circle Dr.
