Worth seeing if you are in the area

If you are in the Galleria area, worth a visit as it is impressive and a break from the rampant consumerism of the mall

I am a big fan of fountains and waterfalls and this spot is amazing! I was actually in awe. It was a nice surprise on a short walk away from my hotel. I am a long time fan of Fort Worth's water garden. This is certainly nothing like that, but still a great sight to check out!!!

It is so close to the Galleria so I decided to stop by. It was much grandeur than I expected. Very beautiful and definitely worth the visit.

The water wall is just beautiful. It is really neat how they built it. Its a very tall wall. And the water is on both sides. Just loved it.

This landmark is close to the shopping mall and if you want to see the downtown area I recommend parking at the indoor parking and taking a stroll.

The Wall of Water created by the huge Torrent is a sight worth seeing. The very size of this man made Fall defies the imagination. It is situated in an excellent garden which is one of the main attractions of Houston

A great attraction to visit on a hot day, like today. The wind gently blew a mist of water as I was photographing it. Beautiful sight to see!

I have to give a disclaimer that the Water Wall has a soft spot in my heart as my wife and I took photos there prior to being married. With that being said, the Water Wall is a neat feature that is conveniently located right next to the Galleria. If you are from out of town and are in the... More
