Tour the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Texas!
Want to know what I like less than heights? Using a tiny elevator to get to them...
But my kids insisted and look at the view of Battleship Texas from the San Jacinto Battle Monument!
(Update: The Battleship Texas is currently closed for renovations! Check for updates HERE.)
For a fee, you can take the little elevator to the observation deck for a view of USS Texas and, on a clear day, Houston. At the top there is also a view on the history of the historic site.
I was not thrilled about the little elevator ride, but it went fast and there was a guide inside, distracting me with facts about the monument. The top is closed in with windows and we were able to look out in all directions.
When the kids were ready, we took the elevator back to my favorite place (ground level).
The San Jacinto Museum of History is located inside the base of the monument, and focuses on the history of the Battle of San Jacinto and Texas culture and heritage.
My kids like the monument, but they really really like the battleship! Check out all the pictures!
