Spring Break is here! If you want to have fun in Houston, without all the crowds, here are our top 8 not-so-typical things to do… and many of them are free!
Bring your own carrots, quartered apples and peppermints, and you can stop in to feed the horses, during visiting hours.
Under Downtown Houston there is a 7 mile, climate controlled, system of tunnels linking office buildings, hotels, banks, restaurants, retail stores and the Theater District. Since the tunnels are opens on weekdays during business hours… Spring Break is a good time to explore them.
While you are Downtown, go find the mysterious red button. (UPDATE: Tell us if this is working for you! We’ve heard it needed repair.) In the middle of the brick column on the south(ish) side of the Preston Street Bridge, is a little red button. When you press it, the water it bayou will bubble for several seconds. I realize that this is just a button and some bubbles, but if you are going to visit it, you really have all the materials you need for a great adventure.
First off, there is no sign above this little button. It is just a mysterious red button in the middle of Downtown Houston. You don’t know whether you should press it or not. And if you do press it, what will happen? Where should you look? And say you see or hear the bubbles, what is causing it?
