This underground tunnel at the MFAH feels as if it's straight out of a music video! One of the coolest things ever. It's like you're on a tropical island and there's a bunch of magical fairies flying around. Amazing vegan!!! A Houston mecca for modern art. The museum was founded in 1948 and presented art in locations all over the city. In 1972, CAMH moved into this beautiful facility designed by Gunnar Birkerts. Just what it says. It's a monument to the city's namesake, Sam Houston. Another beautiful day in Houston. I felt smart just being there Random structure in the museum district.

Ribbon Ice has its origins in Taiwan and is popular all across Asia. This dessert is hand-crafted by combining a mixture of milk, sugar, and fruit. It is served finely shaved through our unique shavers, which gives it an appearance of thinly layered ribbons of snow. They then add toppings like fresh fruit, syrups, and other decadent condiments. Their Ribbon Ice is made with natural flavors and contain fewer calories than ice cream. We had Salty Caramel ribbon Ice cream with caramel sauce with brownie bits and Heath bars! YUM !!!! Zoo lights Try the burgers at Green Seed Vegan, and you'll definitely want cauliflower nuggets to go along! One of the largest chimpanzee exhibits in the country, the Houston Zoo houses over 8 different chimpanzees in an open air arena and a glass viewing area for visitors, it allow you to get up close and personal with the primates. Historic area of Houston. Small, but very peaceful park in the medical center. Water falls on the side of the hill. Amazing tempura soft shell crab tacos with a generous amount of avocado. Definitely a must try! Area with large metal sculptures.

Another little visitor. wonderful day, awesome weather. what a beautiful sunny day Ezekiel Cullen building Perfection, too bad it was blocked off. Hidden statue behind the community gardens.

Still beautiful even in the winter. Great park to walk through, even on a cloudy day. William Marsh Rice, who bequeathed his fortune that founded Rice University. Whether or not you're a little bit country, Rodeo Houston is a BLAST!!
