Great to visit location for local or out of town folks. Parking at the Galleria shopping mall and just walk there.

Houston is a horizontally extended but vertically low-rise city. Outside of a few skyscrapers in the downtown area, the rest of the city consists of one or two-story single-family homes and a few commercial buildings ranging from three to about 10 stories. The major exception is the Williams Tower in the Galleria area (also known as the Uptown District). Built... More

What an amazing building. Just a sad to hear that they had to cap the floor due to the airport. But still an amazing place toe see.

Next to the Building is a small park you can relax in and the Waterwall which is also worthwhile looking at and is a fantastic... More

This place is cool! It's a waterfall in downtown, and it's man-made. On a hot day, this would be the perfect place to visit, because the spray from the waterfall cools you down. I would definitely recommend a visit! There's free parking at a lot nearby as well.

Built right next to the Galleria, this skyscraper is testimony to the notion that at least some zoning might not be such a bad idea. The Williams Tower can be seen from just about anywhere as it is the only structure this tall in that part of town. If you've seen one relatively modern skyscraper, you've seen them all. If... More

It used to have an observatory at the top floors, but it's not open anymore for the public. So, it remains just an interesting building, looking to it's external view!...

Been here a few times and absolutely love the water fall. It is a get away within be city. The park is kept clean and very nice. If you decide to go during hot weather. The mist from the water fall is defiantly relaxing.
