Sure, summer vacation is great, but fall is when Houston really shines. The cooler temperatures make it the perfect destination to get outside and enjoy experiences you won’t find anywhere else. What do we suggest for the perfect weekend? A light jacket, a comfortable pair of shoes and a ticket to ride (or walk) through the city in style.


Cruise through museums on-foot and the streets by bike with the Museum Explorer Pass. Unlimited hour-long rides with pick up and drop off at B-Cycle stations of your choice make exploring the Museum District a snap. Navigate the rideable district and make your way to 11 unique museums including the Health Museum, Holocaust Museum Houston, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and more! Passes start at $35 and are good for seven days after your first use.

If you’re a peddler looking to learn more about Houston along your ride, the Houston Heights Bicycle Tour on November 3rd might be for you. On this guided tour through Houston’s most historic neighborhood, you’ll learn more about the first mixed-use community in the city and see more than 100 sites from the National Register of Historic Places for yourself.

Opt for the Third Ward Bicycle Tour, which allows you to bring your own bike or rent from B-Cycle to explore the Historic Third Ward and learn more about the neighborhood’s character, history and future in the center of Houston. Mark your calendars and buy your tickets for the October 6th or December 1st tour.

Biking is sure to make you thirsty, so why not bundle your two favorite past times?
