Fall is the best time of year in Houston.  In order to maximize this great weather here is something fun to add to your outdoors activity list!

Hermann Park near the Medical Center is not just known for its green space and choo choo train.  It is neighbor to the Houston Zoo, Japanese Garden, Miller Outdoor Theater, and several area museums.  However, recently I discovered McGovern Lake and their pedal boat rentals.  What fun!  Rentals are $10 per boat for a half an hour. Up to four people per boat, so it’s a great trip for kiddos too.  It’s open from Monday through Sunday from 11am to 4pm.  It is required to wear one of their ultra chic orange life vests.  Make the best of it!  The water appears to be extremely shallow but good viewing for some little fishies and lots of turtles!
