Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park

This is a unique attraction in Houston. It's a multi-story fountain that forms a huge wall of water. This man-made attraction is ideal for group photos. On a beautiful sunny day, the waterwall is best seen in bright daylight.

Museum District

Houston is one of the best cities in the United States for museums due to its unique museum district. One of the best in the area is the Houston Museum of Natural Science. You’ll find plenty of free exhibits, interactive exhibits, and a butterfly center. There is also the Museum of Fine Arts for any art lovers with your group. Stop by the Children’s Museum of Houston if you are traveling with your kids. 

Chicken N Pickle

Chicken N Pickle is a great place to stop when driving back to Galveston and your vacation rental. Here, you can eat some amazing fried chicken and then later play a round of pickleball. It also serves pork and beef sandwiches, mac and cheese, and delicious cocktails.
