This place is a small green space in the middle of the Houston Downtown Area. There are several bars around the area for a drink and there is also a NIKO NIKO restaurant in the park. The chicken and spinach pita is excellent as is...More

Downtown Houston is scenic place. One can find different bars, restaurants. Usually most of the places start closing around 9-9:30 pm, but there are some which are open till midnight. Rail network is good around downtown. Best way to enjoy is to walk around

We went in search of this park thinking it was "something to see" - if you happen to go by it great, if not no need to go searching. A water wall, a dog run and some benches... a local park. Don't blink.

I visited Houston, Texas with hundreds of members who all visited some parts in Houston, Texas. We all came back to our hotel with the same conclusion; "It Was Definitely Worth Our Time!"

I always love walking around downtown Houston. So much history and still so much to do there. Treebeard's is excellent and I crave the red beans and rice. La Carafe is in the oldest building in Houston which was originally a bakery. Cash only.

This area definitely needs some work and some energy before it's a real tourist draw. A few casual eating places or coffee shops would help.

We tour this area at night . There were some bars and restaurant open. Houston should do more to revitalize this area. There were some abandon buildings that need some care.

i think the whole of this district is disappointing, I think they are trying to renovate and rejuvenate, but it still has a fair way to go before its up there with other historic dsitricts around the state let alone the country.
