  • This Park around Central magnificent from the River, has perfect trails for riding bicycle or mail or walking or simply. It is large so you can bike ride for several kilometers without repeating routes. It passes through larger Park and sports fields. It is quite safe and there are always people doing exercise. You can rent a bike and go for a walk. Highly recommended.

  • This is park is just awesome! Great for a run, bike or walk with a dog! I absolutely love it. It has stairs on the side that access the main street. (I love to run up and down the stairs for an additional workout). Now the best part is it has a dog pool/lake for small and big dogs with shower and a fence around it! This is Houston's​ Dog Paradise.
  • I love love love love this park! It's got so much space and each area is so different with a different feel and atmosphere. So much art around!! Dog park. Fun trails. You can discover a new favorite spot every time. Surrounded by water so usually the weather is pretty great. So many great trees and windy like almost always. Nice walkways, bridges etc. Great view of downtown. So many many great photographically scenic areas. Plenty of beautiful wild flowers and bluebonnets. Great safe area. People are friendly. We're all happy here :)
  • I love walking along the bayou. It's a great way to enjoy the outdoors in the middle of the city! Beautiful and scenic, Buffalo bayou is an excellent way to spend the day. For walkers and bikers! Dog friendly
  • Buffalo bayou park is one of the nicest city parks I have seen. It offers well maintained trails that are well lit a at night and regularly patrolled by security. The trails are for both bikers and runners with great views of downtown along the entire way. Kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding are popular along the bayou.
  • Love this park! It's HUGE! great for dog walking, running, walking, biking, kids playing, or just hanging out. And the view is phenomenal. We also like to go by the skate park and watch the skateboarders practice and show off their skills

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
