Welcome to Houston, America's fourth-largest city! This in-app audio tour will take you through its downtown landmarks without a car despite this city's fabled car-only reputation. You will start the tour by viewing Houston atop the grassy hills of Discovery Green Park. Houston's oldest Catholic Church of the Annunciation nearby will surprise you as it is one of the few with masses both in English and Latin. Passing by the hallmark Sam Houston Hotel, you will learn about its legendary namesake, Sam Houston, and his achievements in founding and managing the state of Texas. As for Houston city's early years, you will step onto its original center, which is now the hectic Market Square Park. The tour then walks you into the famed Theater District with its range of award-winning ballet, opera, and theatre venues. From there, you will get to the shore of the Buffalo Bayou, near where the Allen brothers founded Houston in 1836. Next, you will swing by the Tranquility Park, a recreational spot with a savvy layout that narrates the Apollo 11 landing and Houston's important role in that. Finally, you will witness the eras of Houston's history at Sam Houston Park, the city's first park that holds architectural icons from different periods of history. Join this tour to experience Houston's unique appeal based on the local sports, space history, performing arts, and urban landscapes!
