Buffalo Bayou Audio Tours
If you want to check out the city's newest urban park, the Buffalo Bayou Park App is the perfect tool. You can listen to descriptions and history on a number of spots throughout the park, from the Cistern to the Police Officers Memorial.

Museum District Walk & Roll
Shara Fryer, retired Ch. 13/ABC news anchor, takes you on a lovely stroll through one of Houston’s most beautiful neighborhoods and cultural mecca, the Museum District. You can either begin the tour in downtown and hop the METRORail to the Museum District or you can start directly in the Museum District. Meet a museum curator, an art school director, a dino-expert and a holocaust survivor. This wonderful overview will give you the lay of the land so you can explore on your own. Find an exhibit, a film or museum that inspires you; you’ll always discover something new.
