On the 23rd (Fri), tour the pleasant surroundings at Water Wall, then have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, then play a few rounds at Hermann Park, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Hermann Park's Japanese Garden.

There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, see Off-Road Tours, get curious at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and cruise along Trail Ridge Road.
