Need a break from the Houston traffic? What a great, relaxing place. Wasn't that busy when we went. Most were taking pictures, it makes a beautiful background for great "travel pictures".So don't forget your camera. Have a little more time? Pick up or pack a light lunch and spend some quiet time together.

The water wall is located just next to the Galleria shopping mall and the Williams tower, so if you plan to visit the water wall you may think about putting all together for a sightseeing and shopping trip. It hardly worth to go just for seeing the water wall itself alone. As I had been there the "outer falls" had... More

It was a decent visit for all new to US. With not very much options available here one should see this.

Took my best friend to visit the wall. We also walked across the lawn to the Williams Towers, formerly known as the Transco Towers. Both are beautiful attractions to see and capture beautiful pictures. Nice short walking trail with trees to shade yourself. I have pics but can't seem to upload them.

This is just one place you have to go to experience! From the size of it to the sound when you are near it to the feel of the water spray. It is not only beautiful but almost mystical. A great spot for pictures or take a blanket and relax in the greenbelt area near it.

Houston’s Galleria area is known for its business and shopping but it’s also known for this structure known as the Water Wall. It’s a large, stone structure with water flowing down on all sides and it’s a great place to sit and relax to the sound of water while letting the mist cool you off. The Water Wall is located...

This place gets really crowded with people taking pictures in the wall, has been for the last 25 years....so avoid crowds going on a weekend late at night or early in the mornings during the week days, if you go when the crowd is there you WILL NOT be able to take any pics. Plenty of parking around and FREE....you... More

This is such a wonderful spot to go to after a day of shopping. Or before. Or without shopping at all. It's truly amazing to stand inside this waterfall. And yes, the picture opportunities are fabulous! The parking is convenient and free and there is a nice little park there, too. Definitely worth a visit. (especially because there's just not... More
