    I love going to Minute Maid to see a baseball game! As I write this, The Astros are headed to the World Series. Minute Maid has very nice facilities and good choices for food too.

    The kids favorite part of the museum was weirdly the HEB grocery store, lol. We had to drag them out of there. They also loved the Challenge Course, Power Play and outside area. We went on a weekday afternoon and it was semi crowded. Can't even imagine going there on a weekend.

    While the zoo is well done, I was surprised that a city the size of Houston didn’t have a larger zoo. Also, while most parks like to advertise their contributions to breeding programs, I don’t recall seeing anything like that mentioned here. I’d call this a fine destination for a local family/grandkids etc, but not so much for out of town visitors.

    We were staying outside the Houston area, but made a point to make it here. I am so glad we did! Make sure to download the app, so you can get tickets for the tours. The command center tour is a must. The minute you walk in to the time you leave, you will enjoy every minute of it.

    So nice to go to a mall that wasn't full of empty store fronts. We enjoyed both the shopping and dining experiences - the variety of both was excellent. We got lost a couple of times and would have appreciated more guides/maps/info services but spent almost a full afternoon there.

    I only visited the butterfly center at the HMNS. I enjoyed it! It was a beautiful setting and very peaceful. the waterfall was a really nice feature. It was an educational experience with lots of great information. The kids seemed to love seeing all the butterflies. There are not so many in there that they land on you a lot like some other Butterfly exhibits I have been to.

    it was a great way to spend an hour or so.

    NOTE FOR THE BUTTERFLY CENTER:
    There was one attendant I saw touching the butterflies and getting them to move and fly. There seemed to be no compelling reason to touch them other than to 'play' with them. The staff uniforms are pretty non-descript so I didn't realize they were an employee. I told her, " I don't think you are meant to be touching the butterflies," she waved her radio at me to indicate she worked there. She told me, "we just tell the kids that,". I only bring this up as it sets an example for other visitors and kids that see that and think it's OK to do the same. If you don't want people to walk around touching the butterflies, the staff probably should leave them alone too.

    Had a great time at the Toyota Center for spurs-rockets game. It was pretty full because rivalry game but east entrance and we didn’t have to go up any escalators. The arena food was expensive but chicken tenders were good and fresh. The ambiance and arena shows were great and the arena was more modern that what we have in OKC.

    I was our first time in Dallas, we truly enjoyed the Livestock and the rodeo shows. We attended competitions on tie down roping, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, also female tie down roping. A must see.

    Very fan friendly. Economical tickets, seats, lots of give-aways, friendly staff who knew their jobs and used that knowledge to assist us (we are from out of town).

    Ideal Downtown park for the children. My in laws also loved the views of skyline and lake in front of convention center. There are TONS of food places close by and a bunch of markets and pop ups food trucks inside park. Only drawback is how crowded it gets so try to get there as early as possible!!!

    A very unique experience. Learned a lot and surprisingly took longer than I thought I needed. Exhibits ranged from caskets, hearses, embalming, and cremation. I also liked the presidential funeral section and the "Thanks for the Memories" exhibit. Go if you have a couple of hours to kill and have been to all the parks and other museums in Houston.

    The guided house tour by Lisa was great, got to visit multiple rooms and see antique furnishings and artwork. The rooms were set up as they had been used by Ima Hogg over the years. Learned some new things that I hadn’t seen in other home tours.

    Gardens were nice, the azaleas weren’t blooming as they bloomed earlier in the year but can imagine how beautiful they would be. It made for a nice stroll viewing some of the statues and fountains.
