Buffalo Bayou Park is a great place to visit. A beautiful view of the city as well as biking and walking trails. An urban city park with kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards for rent. Located about 20-25 minutes.

One of my favorite. This park is the beating heart of the city's main artery. It provides great recreational opportunities so close to town. You can explore the park water in a kayak, take a walk in Kinder Footpaths, or ride bikes on Sandy Reed Memorial trail.
“There are plenty of sightings of celebrities at The Galleria Mall. Especially when there are special events in town. The Galleria is our largest and most high-end indoor shopping mall full of designer stores. There are plenty of food options there ranging from food court/sit down restaurants around a large indoor skating rink to fine dining, all within a mile radius of Uptown Park”
“ 1500 McKinney St, Houston, TX 77010 · My favorite · Hours: 6AM–11PM · Its easily accessible by metrorail · I recommend walking across the street to the international food store- Phoenicia and their restaurant has a good happy hour”
“A legacy of the philanthropists John and Dominique de Menil, the Menil Collection opened in 1987. The museum presents regular rotations of artworks from its growing permanent collection, organizes special exhibitions and programs throughout the year, publishes scholarly books, and conducts research. The Menil Collection’s main museum building anchors a parklike 30-acre campus, which also includes the Cy Twombly Gallery, a site-specific Dan Flavin installation, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel—now a venue for long-term installations by contemporary artists—and outdoor sculpture.”
