Houston Zoo

Cheetahs, jellyfish, elephants, blue whales, parrots—these are just a few of the animals you can see up close at the Houston Zoo (7.9 miles). The zoo is open daily and ticket prices range from $10.50 to $17.00. If you visit on the first Tuesday of the month, September through May, you can get in for free after noon. Check the daily schedule for feeding times and special events happening each day.

Minute Maid Park

Take your family out to a ballgame at Minute Maid Park (8.9 miles). Home of the Houston Astros, this state-of-the-art baseball stadium features a natural grass playing field, and was the first to feature a retractable roof. This means the game goes on rain or shine!
