Thank you to Houston Matters for having me on to talk about Quirky Things to Do in Houston! I really enjoyed talking about our city with Craig and Barbara Hinton and hearing from those that called in!
Here are 10 of my favorite unusual and quirky things to do in Houston:
JP Morgan Chase Tower Observation Deck – The JP Morgan Chase Building is 75 stories tall, making it the tallest building in Houston and one of the top 10 tallest buildings in the United States. The observation deck is on the 60th floor during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, this observation deck is open to the public for free.
For those that work Downtown, this might not be all that exciting. For families who didn’t know they could wonder around under the streets, this is a great, free, and climate controlled adventure!
The vessels are tucked away in the Wortham Foundation Gardens. Find these by the Hilton and be ready to be amazed!
The Ideson building was the central library until it was replaced by the larger Jesse H. Hones library next door in 1976. It has since been home of the Houston Metropolitan Research Center.
This building is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place for a party. I’m secretly planning on it for at least one of my kid’s wedding receptions. I just have one concern with this.
The building is said to be haunted.
