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.
