Houston, TX 77002
Brought to you by the ArCH Walking/Bicycle Tours
Explore the city from a vantage point most people don't see: the waterway that gave Houston life and has been its backbone for 182 years. Architecture Center Houston (ArCH), with the cooperation of Buffalo Bayou Partnership, invite you to a stroll along Buffalo Bayou Parkway for an overview of downtown Houston's history and architecture from its beginnings in 1836 to the efforts to revitalize the central city today. The tour showcases the innovative bayou reclamation efforts of the City of Houston, Harris County, and Buffalo Bayou Partnership, while topically discussing history and preservation, contemporary architecture, the bayou, and adjacent parkland.
Meets outside the future home of the Architecture Center Houston at 902 Commerce Street.
Street, lot and garage parking is available in the area. Parking fees are not included in registration.
The safety of Architecture Center Houston’s visitors, volunteers and staff is our top priority. For the safety of our guests, ArCH docent-led walking tours are limited to a maximum of six attendees to allow for appropriate social distancing. All tour attendees are required to wear face coverings over both their mouth and nose at all times. BE ADVISED: Docents may choose not to wear a mask while speaking.
