Hi all,
I' am coming back to Houston this weekend. I spent the last weekend enjoyng the natural aspects of Houston (i.e. went hiking and gator watching at Brazos Bend State Park both days I was in the area and went to other natural areas), now I want to enjoy the city itself. I want to get good shots of the downtown, uptown and other skylines in the area and just need to know where would be some good areas to do so.

Also, I got a good idea of where the Museum, Historical, and Art districts are at, I just need some ideas on Souvenier shops for purchasing stuff like Houston T-shirts, window stickers, ect. and suggestions on good restaurants. I will be staying at a hotel near Uptown, but will spend a good amount of time in downtown as well. Thanks!

Eleanor Tinsley Park - Fourth Ward - Houston, TX

The park is really about 1/2 to 3/4 miles long there is a nice lighted trail that goes under I45

Here are a few videos I made at this park





Also drive down whiteoak close to I10 that does along the bayou & you can see downtown

How big is this park? I've only walk around the part where you were filming. I try to keep on walking but got tired and headed back. This park seems to go on forever.

Come up 288 from Pearland and you can see the medical center and downtown all at once.

The entire Buffalo Bayou park system is like 4 miles long. All of it is walk able up until Shepard. They plan on connecting it to Memorial park eventually.
