The Galleria
There are a wide array of high end stores, restaurants and a giant indoor ice skating rink. This is one of the nicest malls I have been in. The indoor ice skating rink along with the high end stores makes this place interesting. The people watching can be great fun even if you don’t purchase anything.

Dave and Busters
For big kids this place is a blast! There are great video games, a restaurant that serves everything form wings to New York Strips and great happy hours.

Arboretum and Nature Center
The Arboretum and Nature Center is a sanctuary for native animals and plants. It is a great place to get away from the insanity of everyday life, recharge our batteries and take in nature’s beauty.

The Houston Zoo
Over 1.7 million guests visit the Houston Zoo each year. With over 4,500 permanent residences, there are a large variety of animals and ecosystems to enjoy and learn about. There are also many public and private events as well as entertainment.

The Museum of Fine Arts
The Museum of fine arts is the largest art museum in the Southwest. There are many great works of art to be found here. There is impressionist, post-impressionist, renaissance art and more.
