1. The Sam Houston Boat Tour, named for the legendary military commander who played a pivotal role in the war for Texas independence from Mexico, is a leisurely trip along the Houston Ship Channel. Visitors are welcome to board the free vessel and learn about the Port of Houston, one of the busiest ports in the world. The cruise is not only educational but will offer your family comfortable relief on the water and an escape from the heat.
2. Bats quietly reside all over the country, and rare is the opportunity to be able to see entire colonies of them up close. The Waugh Drive Bat Colony, making their home under the Waugh Drive Bridge, is one of the only bat colonies in Texas that remains in the state throughout the year instead of migrating south. Your family can comfortably and safely view the bats from the best locations with tips from experts at the observation deck.
