Explore Houston underground.
You can walk through downtown Houston via the 6.2-mile tunnel system without having to set foot in the hot, humid weather! Take a tour with Discover Houston tours (Call 713-222-WALK.) or do it yourself with a map from the Visitor’s Center in City Hall. You can also download a map courtesy of Treebeard’s restaurant (one of the many businesses you’ll find in the tunnel) at: http://www.treebeards.com/location/tunnel.html
Sandra Lord, aka The Tunnel Lady, leads groups on walking tours of the Tunnel System and other downtown attractions. Try the Tunnel & Trolley Tours, NiteCrawls, Sunday Strolls, Ghost Walks in October and Holiday Lights Walks in December. Sandra offers several options, including customized itineraries.
