Too rainy to hike?

We can't hike all the time. There are times when the bayous are over their banks and the forests are flooded. There is the need we have to spend time with family, and our non-hiking but still worthy friends and colleagues. And well, there are the occasional times we just want to do something else.

So here is a map of fun things to do in and around Houston. With a few special places around Texas. If you know something fun to add to the map, please email me at

See you on the trail,


Street art is not meant to be permanent. These locations often have art but the art you may see changes from time to time.
