Texas Hotel Reservations
The Open Spaces of Space City
There’re plenty of ways to get out in the warm, Houston air.
Take advantage of your position on the stunning Gulf Coast with a visit to the Fort Travis Seashore Park or the Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary. It's also worth mentioning – the Texas Gulf Coast is major bird-watching country thanks to the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail.
This being a major city, Houston features more than 330 parks throughout, totaling over 56,000 acres of parkland. Recreational activities include fishing at Lake Houston Park, walking the Buffalo Bayou at Sesquicentennial Park, and biking at Terry Hershey Park.
For a little nature downtown, check out the 12-acre Discovery Green – filled with picnickers and live music on Jones Lawn, plus kayaking on Kinder Lake and bocce courts at Maconda's Grove.
Golf is aplenty in H-town as well. As you explore Houston, be sure to book a tee time at any of these premier golf courses. The Hermann Park Golf Course is 18 holes, a par 70, and was the very first public golf course in the United States. The Clear Creek Golf Course is another exemplary choice in Houston, and in early April of each year, don’t miss the Shell Houston Open held at the Redstone Golf Club.
