10 Places I'd Take Tourists to in Houston

I love having people visit me (with proper notice, of course). And I love showing off my area! If you were to come for a visit, these are just some of the things that we could do. Houston truly has something for everyone!


  1. Kemah Boardwalk to eat, ride the rides, &/or walk along the boardwalk looking at the sights.



  2. Galveston to visit Moody Gardens, the beach, &/or go shopping along The Strand.



  3. San Jacinto battleground where "Remember the Alamo" was cried and Texas won its independence.


  4. Houston Zoo to see Luna the orangutan who shares the exact same bday as Bear (ok, so she's not there anymore but we can pretend).


  5. Astrodome and then Minute Maid Park to catch a 'Stros game!

  6. Galleria for some high-end shopping



  7. Museum of Natural Science or any other museum that strikes your fancy.


  8. Space Center/NASA where the space race began and continues today.



  9. Driving around to see the different and vast areas, places that are important in our daily lives, and eating at some of our favorite restaurants!


  10. for non-Texans, I always like to take a little road trip to see The Alamo. No, it's not in my hometown, but it is in my homestate. ;)

See you real soon, ya hear?! Bubba's Sis & I will show you a grand ole time!

We have NOTHING here (except for Christmas lights and I've heard a giant Folgers coffee can at the Folgers plant I didn't know we had) NOTHING! That settles it, JenGi and I will have to go to you, not the other way! xo

PS--I got Webkinz for the baskets today (even Niki wanted one) and I'm off to HyVee to hunt down those little coconut nests Russell Stovers makes! That's about as good as it's getting here!

Ooooo...pictures! I'd love to check out the zoo. My sis-in-law is always sending me pictures of her visits there.

Stacey, close by, you have the Pony Express museum, Jesse James' house. I'm not sure how far away you are from all the Harry Truman stuff and the Hallmark museum. I'm sure we can make our own fun no matter where we are!

Bear, fairly good, huh? I'll remember that next time you ask to go visit one of them. Luna went to another zoo. I'm not sure which zoo tho.
