Our favorite way of getting around Houston is by bicycle, and you are only a short walk away from the entrance to Houston's expansive bicycle highway system and bike share rental station. It costs just $3 per 30 minute ride, or $9 for unlimited 60 minute rides for a month. More info at https://houston.bcycle.com .

Food Scene
Our favorite coffee shop, which serves Big Bend Coffee Roasters (our favorite coffee). We like to order their namesake, the "antidote", which is a red eye (drip coffee with a shot of espresso). Ask for the dark roast.

A fancy chandelier forward space along the Buffalo Bayou, with a surprisingly affordable brunch, and casual vibe. On nice day, we like to bicycle here along the bicycle highway. There is a Houston BCycle station across the street, and so you can get there from here through the bikeshare program.

Parks & Nature
A large converted downtown parking lot that is now a thriving wetland and live oak lined urban park...an incredible showcase of how humans can prioritize nature and turn a parking lot into a lot of park. You can take the Red Line with a bit of walking at the end, or bike there (if so, ask us for the best bicycle route, as you can get there on protected bicycle paths).
