Walking Downtown Houston with Free Audio & Self-Guided Tours
Want to know more about Downtown Houston? Grab your iPod, smartphone or MP3 player and get ready to walk. Don’t feel like walking? Sit back and let your mind wander as you listen to stories and learn more about the city we live in.
At Downtown Houston you will find FREE audio and self-guided tours available, brought to you by the Downtown District and Houston First Corporation. Among the tours are The Ultimate Downtown Walking Tour, the Museum District Walk & Roll, and A Walk in the Park: Discovery Green Walking Tour.
Hosted by Sugar Hill Studios owner Dan Workman, The Ultimate Downtown Walking Tour could teach native Houstonians as well as newcomers a thing or two about the downtown area in an entertaining, upbeat way. This tour covers two miles in Downtown Houston. If walking, allow at least two hours time.
The Museum District Walk & Roll, also a two-mile tour, is hosted by retired ABC Channel 13 news anchor Shara Fryer. You can start the tour downtown or, if you prefer, begin it in the Museum District. Allow plenty of extra time to explore the museums.
Want a shorter tour? A Walk in the Park: Discovery Green Walking Tour takes about half an hour to complete the 0.6 mile stroll. Founding president Guy Hagstette gives you a personal tour with information about art, activities, events and more at Discovery Green.
For each tour you can download both an audio recording and detailed map to guide you.
