“Hang Out at Discovery Green Downtown Houston is home to another oasis of sorts: Discovery Green. Situated across the street from the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery Green is a popular social spot where you can listen to musicians perform on the stage, see a movie outdoors, let Fido play in the dog park, or simply go for a stroll. Don't miss testing out the Unique Listening Vessels, two stone sculptures featuring concave interiors that focus sound waves, allowing you to have a quiet conversation with someone from 70 feet away. ”

“Bike along Buffalo Bayou With miles of urban bike trails, it turns out that Houston is a great place to work up a sweat. One of the best spots in town for this is along Buffalo Bayou through Eleanor Tinsley Park. Ride the curvy trails over hills and old-fashioned bridges into downtown and back, enjoying a view of the skyline along the way. If you don't have your own bike, rent one from one of the many Houston bicycle stations in the area (that will cost you money, though). You can also go for a jog, or enjoy a leisurely stroll. ”

Botanical Garden
“Walk the Trails at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center Drive less than one mile west of Memorial Park to reach a stunning 155-acre nature sanctuary tucked right into the heart of the fourth largest city in America. Meander along the five miles of scenic trails under towering sycamore, oak, and pine trees, and then keep an eye out for turtles and fish as you wander through a shallow wetland. With free admission and much to see, you could spend a whole day here. ”

“ Selfie at the Water Wall Looking for that one-of-a-kind photo for your Instagram? Hit up the Water Wall, a 64-foot-tall U-shaped fountain situated just a few blocks south of the Houston Galleria. Step inside the "U" and listen to the water rush past you as you're sprayed by a cool mist, a great way to temporarily escape the summer heat. ”

“Great running trails, biking, walking, and running around. Festivals and live music happen occasionally, there are canoe and kayak tours, and a bayou boat ride tour. The park runs all along the bayou and runs into downtown. Super cool skate park on one end, and lots of room for running with your kids and dogs, pack a picnic and have a good time. Check out the Waugh Street Bridge and Bat colony, too - it's a sight to behold!”

“Jog at Memorial Park Don your running shoes and head to Memorial Park (the "largest urban park in Texas") to work up a sweat. The popular three-mile running trail that encloses an 18-hole golf course and tennis complex weaves along pine and oak woodlands, providing a breathtaking natural retreat right in the middle of the city. A variety of biking trails, sand volleyball courts, and outdoor workout stations can be found in the park as well, making it a one-stop-shop for your exercise needs. ”

“Kayak on the Armand Bayou Paddling Trail Houston is just a stone's throw away from all the natural splendor of the Texas Gulf Coast. Although there are a variety of ways to take it in for yourself, one of the best is by kayaking on Clear Lake. Follow the Armand Bayou Paddling Trail and you'll be surrounded by coastal woods that are home to a spectacular array of wildlife, including ospreys, egrets, pelicans, and alligators that (in some cases) grow as long as 10 feet. ”
