Weekend Gateway, Houston 

Day 1 :

Start the day at the Rice University. The campus is beautiful , you can have a walk around and have coffee at one of the coffee shops there. Take a look at the James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyscraper in the middle of the campus . The art structure lighten up at sunset and sunrise .

By the university , take Sunset boulevard . It is one of the famous streets of Houston . The route is covered with those gorgeous old oak trees.

Head to the the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park by the Galleria Mall. The huge waterwall looks like a waterfall . There is a Mexican restaurant by there called El Tiempo Cantina . The best fajita I ever had , so sizzling .

At sunset , go to Jackson Hill Bridge . You will see the crowd waiting for the bats to come out . Under that bridge in the Bayou area, the bats come out at sunset time .

At night go to the Midtown neighborhood . It’s is the young neighborhood with bars and restaurants .

Day 2 :

Start your morning with a walk in Hermann Park . It is a beautiful park in the university area , it has a concert area , a lake with a cafe where you can have breakfast and the zoo is at the end of it . The park is crowded with runners and everybody is just waking around or relaxing on the grass . A part of the park in constructed like the Great Mall of DC .

For the test of the day , you can go to Kemah Boardwalk. It is about 35 miles from Houston. It’s a Pier area by the Houston bay . They have a lot of fun attractions for the kids and they also have restaurants . Enjoy the bay before sunset and have dinner at the best seafood restaurant , Landry’s.
