Discovery Green is Houston’s premiere Downtown ‘Central’ Park. The George R. Brown Convention Center and the Marriott Marquis are within a short walking distance from each other, and many downtown destinations.

Typical sunny, hot and humid for the extended July 4th weekend here in Houston, Texas. Looks like FREEDOM OVER TEXAS will have a nice evening. Wherever you may celebrate, please enjoy and be safe !

Was thankful for PSAV Presentation Services work at the Hilton Americas setting up A/V & projection for a large convention last week. It was another beautiful clear dry Houston spring day.
The Hilton is located at 1600 Lamar Street, right next to downtown’s Discovery Green park and the George R. Brown Convention Center. It’s just a stones throw from the Toyota Center [NBA Rockets Home] and Minute Maid Park [MLB Astros Home]. And just across the freeway is BBVA Compass Stadium [MLS Dynamo Home]. It’s all right in the midst of the revitalized convention district of Houston.
So, Get outside and enjoy these days before the heat and humidity soon come !

The Louis & Anne Friedman Clock Tower, aka Market Square Clock Tower at 301 Travis is across the street from the Historic Market Square Park. The postmodern 65 foot tall clock tower is in the heart of Houston’s busy Historic District.
It’s just a few blocks from Buffalo Bayou & Allen’s Landing, where Houston got it’s
start when brothers August Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen from Madison County, NY stepped ashore in August 1836.
Market Square Park’s a fun place for an afternoon or evening adventure, with eats, drinks and music close by, and it’s dog-friendly with large and small dog-runs.
