We took the guided tour of Sam Houston Park and it was not a bad experience, but it just wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. We paid the $15 fee at the historical society and we saw several houses near the museum, and then crossed over into the park to finish the tour. The best money we... More

This is a nice park close to downtown Houston. There are 9 or 10 historic buildings, and you can do an audio tour on your cell phone and get information on each building. The buildings were not open when we were there - not sure if or when they are. They were furnished in period furnishings from what we could... More

The topics change every month--this month was Jack Vance speaking about his new book "Murder and Mayhem in Houston" What a great idea for a lunch hour or if you're in town for convention-- We went to look at...

We went to the Sam Houston Statue in Huntsville. It was a nice quiet and easy stroll to see the statue. Very interesting.

Came into town for a band that was playing at the festival. The entire park and streets were blocked off. The park was great. Little trails all around it, with trees and little ponds. There was a lot of people there, but we still managed to find some private places. Very clean. I was glad to see a show there... More

Great place to see historical homes (not mansions) in a near native setting. Combine with trip to the Downtown Houston Tunnels System... do the Park first in the morning, then a treat in the tunnels with shopping, eating, etc.

We visited on 28 December 2013 which was a bright and dry day mid holiday season. we could not enter the houses but could peer trough the windows and the exteriors were magnificent all tastefully dressed for Christmas. It was a comfortable walk with houses of different... More
