Water Wall, Houston

4.5
#2 of 16 in Nature in Texas Gulf Coast
Standing more than 18 m (60 ft) tall, Water Wall recirculates more than 4,000 li (1,057 gal) of water per minute. The architecture of the wall behind the water features a semicircle with water cascading down the structure's inner and outer walls. Be sure to step inside, where the deafening roar provides another perspective of this centerpiece of the city's business center. There is no fee to visit the wall, but be mindful of posted opening and closing hours. To avoid parking fees, park your car at the nearby mall for free and walk over. Work out when and for how long to visit Water Wall and other Houston attractions using our handy Houston vacation generator.

    Walk around a shopping mall, was by chance. Thought certainly there is the force of the water, the Park of the ordinary.

    The photos say more I will let them talk. Right behind the Galleria. Looks like the ice at Niagara Falls.  more »

    Impressive constructed waterfall near Galleria and Williams Tower. Williams Tower is the tallest US building outside of a central business district.  more »

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
