See the parks

Old is mixed with new architecture. Must spend some time in the parks which are unique and placed unexpectedly.

A welcome retreat from the vibrancy of this crazy area. Peace amidst the noise. Calm in the storm. I am sure you get the point. We loved the people watching and the fact that Houston does so much to preserve nature and to educate people. The positive culture is well presented here. This gives Houston a great living feel in...

Market Square is a nice public space downtown that is surrounded by a vibrant restaurant and bar scene. It has a small stage for concerts and a fenced dog run. All in all it makes the city more livable. It also has a small memorial garden for a local resident, and all, who died on United flight 93 on 9/11.... More

I had a couple of hours to kill before travelling back to airport. I thought that there are several interesting to see, but you can easily walk around this place within 15 mins. There is only a wall with mural. I did not check out the bars, but they don't look very interesting from outside. The night scene might be... More

We stopped to have a sandwich and people watch while exploring the city. Very nice area that we look forward to coming back to explore further! Definitely feel safe walking around the city as well.

Visited for "A Night at Market Square Park" there was great live music and lights. Good trucks were out on Main Street and the quesadilla from a taco truck was delicious. I enjoyed myself at the park.

Graced with the public market square park which is public, gorgeous historic site with 19th century well maintained architecture it is a must see/visit location for tourists. It has a historic square with lots of businesses, restaurants for foodies, entertainment and upscale night clubs.Be mindful that parking is not easy to get. Architecture is what gave me a "wowzer" or... More

As they are trying to bring life into Houston this is a good place to be as there are restaurants and bars on the square and on the surrounding streets with a good variety of food. August is not the time of year to spend outdoors but this patch of green amid the concrete jungle may be much more enjoyable... More
