Be sure to stop by - on your way to somewhere else. It ranks up there with the giant ball of twine and other silly gems out there. Just something that you've got to see for yourself.

I have always lived in Houston, but never heard of the Beer Can House until recently. It's only $2 per person to walk around, or $5 per person for a guided tour. It's fairly close to the museum district, and it's worth the slight offshoot. You can walk around the yard and explore the entire interior of the house, and there is a 10 minute documentary that plays in the den. It showcases one man's odd passion and his wife's good graces in putting up with it! I wouldn't drive across town, but if you're in the area already and have a couple bucks to spare, I would definitely check it out. Very cute!

This is an interesting little gem in the heart of the city. Definitely worth seeing. It is unexpected.

Luckily, our GPS got us right there but it is tucked away in a neighborhood. It was $5 each for the tour so for 3 of us we passed. Took pics from our car and drove on. Odd how it is set in a neighborhood as just another house. The neighbors must love all the traffic!
