Y’all already know that we visited too many places to create a list. We’ve come up with a slim few places that stuck out & thought that you should visit when in H-town. It goes without saying to visit downtown Houston. There is so much art, food, & culture in the heart of the city. Check out our list below!!
The Beer Can House
The sis & I cruised to triple 2 Malone St. to see one of Houston’s unique treasures. We found out about it after doing a lil’ readin’. This house is made of cans & is not only neat to see in person, but the hanging cans make for fab built in wind chimes that sound oh so sweet when the wind is blowing.
It has been a staple in the community for decades & was created by a man who grew up during the Great Depression; (they believed in salvaging everything) & this beer can house is proof. You can find some more interesting info on the house here!
A (ANY) Wine Vineyard
We drove over 2 hours outside of Houston (Brenham to be exact) to visit this particular vineyard. The drive alone was beautiful. Thinking about the countryside makes me smile. We saw cattle, corn, horses & lovely pastures. A belle won’t be revealing the name of the one we visited (shaking my head), but there are several to choose from.
Though slightly irritated with the owners, Shermika & I enjoyed a wine tasting, & a walk/few jumps in the vineyard. We’ve learned to take the bad with the good & enjoyed the moment. Our 3 glasses of wine didn’t hurt the situation either!!
Houston native, David Adickes is the artist/creator of these B-EAUTIFUL gigantic statues. After passing a few huge statues on I-45 we did a little research & ended up at his studio. You will find all types of statue heads & MORE. To the left of this “We <3 Houston ” piece are trees made out of some sort of cloth & they are very colorful. Make sure you have a gander at them when you visit this site. Preeeety!!!
The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park
First, these pics don’t do this wall ANY justice. Period! It’s beautiful & refreshing on a hot TX day. This is the perfect place to walk off some good old TX eats while enjoying the outdoors or a picnic. Don’t believe us? You’ll see plenty of peeps at this site enjoying the weather, shade & more. This wall is located right next to the Galleria Mall in Houston’s Uptown District. This mall has an ice skating rink indoors & is work the visit too.
This lavender farm was about 2 hours or so outside of Houston, but too is worth the drive. If you love lavender as much as these belles then you’ll love this farm & the cute little shop that’s there too. It’s filled with all sorts of lavender goods & handmade jewelry. You know a belle did some shopping, right?! 🙂 If lavender doesn’t suit your fancy, then head to a farm of your liking. There are plenty to pick from. It is Texas ya know.
Have you visited any place fun this summer? Been to any of these hot spots we’ve listed? We want to hear!
