    If the park already wasn't incredible enough, get an app like Pokémon Go and hunt all day with friends or family, as there are TONS of pokestops.

    One of the largest public parks in Houston & home to the Museum District and Zoo.The serenity and peacefulness of the park is wonderful & visitors have the opportunity to jog, golf or paddle boat.

    Sometimes there will be little snack vendors by the reflection pond closer to the zoo entrance- which is great on hot days when a bottled water or an ice cream is much needed!
