A Weekend Adventure in Downtown Houston.
We decided to venture out to the museum district in downtown Houston this past weekend. We first checked out the Museum of Contemporary Art, admission is always free so that's a plus but currently they're renovating the first floor so it won't keep you busy for too long (the gift shop is surprisingly awesome though).The secluded sculpture garden nearby however was worth the walk over there, it was like stepping into a magical oasis, there were tables for eating and because it's surrounded by concrete walls, it's surprisingly quite. It was a lovely, overcast day so we walked around Hermann Park (situated between Fannin Street and Cambridge Street) there you'll find a rose garden, Japanese garden, and the infamous grassy dome that allows you to take in the very best views of the park. We ended up only covering only a fraction of the massive 407 acres but it's always comforting to find such a vast expanse of nature amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
Definitely cannot wait to check out more of the museums and parks next weekend!
