    Few questions before I recommend places. Are you planning to drive to other cities? Also, which part of Houston are you gonna stay in? Below are my recommendations.

    1. Brazos Bend State Park.
    About 1 hour from Houston in driftwood texas. Very beautiful place. Usually on a sunny afternoon, if you are lucky, you can see alligator sunning itself on the trail. And if you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of deers. I used to have annual pass to this park and go there once every other weekend.

    2. Fossil Rim.
    The largest safari style park near dallas. About 4 hour drive from houston... very nice place.

    3. Enchanted Rock
    off austin a very nice hiking place. Small little mountain to climb but scenery is priceless.

    4. Big Ben National Park.
    This one is about 8 hours away from Houston. But i can gurantee that the scenary is awesome.

    5. Galverston State Park.
    I call this place the sugei Buloh equalivent in texas... about 1 hour away from houston.. LOL

    6. San Jacinto Battleship.
    Dun really find this place interesting... but a lot of my friends like this place.. between houston and galverston...

    If you still want to add more to the list PM me and I can tell you more especially if you wanna know what food is good and where to find it. I lived in that horrible city for 9 years... HAHAHHAHA

    Galveston (not Galverston), may not have recovered since Hurricane Ike last September.

    I agree with you on the horrible part. Who needs 10 lanes of crazy traffic? If there is an upside to Houston, it's that beef steaks are relatively cheap, right?
