The Great Outdoors
Houston may be one of the largest urban centers in the United States, but you only need to drive less than an hour out of the city to experience a slice of nature at Brazos Bend State Park. Walk through a half-mile nature trail through a wetland area; head into the hardwood forest and explore the trails on two feet or two wheels; and keep a sharp eye out for white-tailed deer, river otters, and the American alligator. As three ecosystems converge in the park, more than 300 species of birds have been documented here, using the park as their rest stop, nesting range, or winter home.
If you're looking to stroll on a beach, Galveston Island State Park is a fitting escape from the hustle of downtown Houston. There you can go for a swim, look out for coastal birds, or cast a line for spotted seatrout, redfish, and flounder. Birders will love it here when the park gets busy during the spring and fall migration seasons. More strenuous activities include mountain biking, paddling, and hiking.
A few places in southeast Texas preserve natural spaces where several ecosystems come together. Big Thicket National Preserve is less than two hours' drive from your campsite at King Parkway MH Community. There, you’ll hike through longleaf pine forests or bogs of pitcher plants, or even paddle on miles of creeks and cypress-lined bayous where serenity and solitude make good company. Hiking and canoe trails vary in length, from less than half a mile to close to 20 miles round-trip on two feet, or up to 21-mile-long waterways for paddlers of varying skill levels.

As one of the biggest metropolises in the United States, Houston expectedly offers endless attractions and activities, whatever your age or interest.

Whether you came to experience a Texas honky-tonk, see a cheetah or chimpanzee up close at the Houston Zoo, or gawk at the exhibits in the Museum District, you're sure to be delighted with your discoveries.
This being Houston, a visit to the Space Center to see the U.S. Space Program and marvel at flown spacecraft is almost a pilgrimage. Board a tram for a tour of the NASA Johnson Space Center, or hear NASA mission updates at the Mission Briefing Center. If you're more into the historical side of the city, stroll around "The Heights," and admire homes from the late 1800s, and the neighborhood’s 19th Street filled with quaint boutiques, antique shops, and cozy cafes.
