Just like the title says what are some good areas where you can view the downtown skyline in all of it's greatness. Also a place where you can view Houston's other skylines?

I can tell suggest if you ever have the money you can get you a room at Hotel ZaZa right across the street from Herman Park. It has great views of downtown skyline, Uptown/Galleria skyline/Greenway Plaza Skyline.

Also the area in 3rd ward near Emancipation Park has a great view of the Downtown skyline.

Hoping to see more of this east of downtown....OK..."EaDo" it is....

The older towers like the Gulf are still visible (for now) from the east. You can't see them from the west.

Besides out my bedroom window. Me and a friend use to go up to the campus parking garage roof and the view is stunning from up there.

I took this pic from a park along Allen Parkway just west of downtown. You can only pull into the parking area from the westbound lanes. If you're coming from the west, you have to go all the way down to Bagby (I believe) before you can turn around to get into the west bound lanes.



You'll note that the trees have no leaves. The pic was taken in January.
