We visted Sunday August 20. Four of us toured. A great educational venue for Saltwater habitats and fisheries. Definitely a place for children. They will enjoy the touch tank and the display of the different types if fish.

Best of all its free!

Reviewed By Kathy J - hawkins, United States

This museum has a very friendly atmosphere and is not intimidating at all. The girls loved looking at all the exhibits and then the interactive part for children was just great. We stayed for about 3 hours. I will definitely put it on our "Must Do" list for next year.

Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge

Reviewed By Bob W

This refuge hosts thousands of overwintering waterfowl - ducks, geese and shorebirds. There's an autotour loop that passes ponds and marsh habitat for easy viewing from the comfort of your vehicle. If you plan to get out of your car, bring plenty of insect spray, as the mosquitoes can be pretty brutal at any time of the year.

For a fantastic birding experience, participate in the Freeport Christmas Bird Count, held on a Sunday each December. Check out Houston Audubon's website for the exact date.

Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary

Reviewed By P1313 - Peoples' Republic of Boulder

This is a small, one square block, bird sanctuary that somehow has been set aside, and apparently cared for mostly by volunteers, in Quintana, TX - just south across the channel from the small town of Surfside, TX. You have to do a drive-around and approach from the West to get there, however.
There is a viewing tower from which you can get an overview of the entire park. Due to several mowed paths looping through the park you can get close-up views of a variety of small birds. Binoculars are helpful.

Lake Jackson Historical Museum

Reviewed By Maahart3 - Johnson City, Tennessee

I drive to Lake Jackson while visiting Houston. The history museum was small, but very informative about the many chemical companies that support the community. There were wax museum figures with interactive activities for children. There were many nonfiction text features for quick reference The singer Selena grew up there and they have a nice exhibit/memorial for her.

Fling Charters

Reviewed By Love2Dive2011 - Kellyville, Oklahoma

This was our first trip with Fling Charters and we couldn't have been happier. This was also our first trip on dive boat like the Fling. The crew was fantastic. They were friendly and very helpful. The was plenty of food and companionship among the divers. We were blessed with wonderful weather. The diving was awesome! We saw lots of different sea creatures. We didn't get to dive the East Bank due to it being closed because of something going on there. We dove the West Bank and Stetson. Stetson was the sight of our night dive. The dive masters put our safety first. They provided excellent briefings before each dive and then "opened the pool". Diving here is much different than diving in Cozumel and places like that. We will definitely do the Texas Flower Gardens again.

The boat was kept clean. The sleeping quarters were bunks and they aren't assigned. It is first come, first serve. Study the floor plan of the boat so you know where you want to sleep. Because the sleeping quarters are bunks, you will want to pack light. Pack what you think you will need for a 3 day trip and then take half of what you think you need. The food is served buffet style in galley. It was really good. There was plenty to eat. There was always food before and between dives. You will not go hungry. If you are prone to motion sickness, you will want to bring something for that.

I highly encourage anyone who hasn't done this trip to have a go at it. You won't regret it!

Surfside Jetty Park

Reviewed By BobShelton - Honey Grove, Texas

People sometimes pass through here and don't recognize the historic value of the area. Stephen F. Austin landed his "Old 300" here, Santa Anna signed his surrender here, the Texas Navy had a famous battle with Mexican ships in the mouth of the river here. There are too many things to list, that the general public fails to recognize.

Wilderness Golf Course

Reviewed By james d - pearland

This golf course is built in protected wetlands so there was a emphasis on building the golf course with minimum disruption to the environment. The result is a fantastic setting. The greens undulate sharply making this a very challenging scoring course. The staff is excellent. Food is sub par and takes a long time for them to prepare. Since it is a protected area, you definitely want to bring your bug spray.
