If you're sweet-blooded like myself, bring the bug spray! Especially after a rain. The arboretum is a beautiful place to see Houston in a different way. Great for a picnic of afternoon stroll.

A nice hidden gem within Memorial Park that almost feels as if you are in the middle of nowhere. The trails are great for an escape.

Up to 12 miles of free walking trails. Totally Free. Will be doing this one over and over again.

Another corner of quiet and calm in the bustling city of Houston. Though far from the largest city park in the US, walking through the Houston Arboretum always feels to me like an immersive experience far away from the hectic streets of the city just outside. It's not huge, not a spectacle, maybe good for an Instagram and a picnic and that's it. And yet, every time I'm in the city I find myself pulled back here for yet another quick visit to a quiet beautiful place.

Arboretum is one of my favorite parts of Houston. It is because you don't even feel like you are in Houston. It is a piece of peace that you can't get anywhere in Houston. The Arboretum is the one place you can be with nature. There are many different walking hikes you can take. There is a beautiful pond in the center of it all. The only thing that might give it away that you are in Houston is the sound of the train!

Other wise this is such a lovely lovely park.
