Enjoy Birdwatching and More at These Exciting Outdoor Destinations near Houston

If you're feeling adventurous, look no further than these day-trip destinations under two hours from our Houston apartments. See the Gulf of Mexico up close, walk on sandy beaches, and enjoy birdwatching in Houston on these short trips.

Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge

About an hour and 20 minutes from Houston, you'll find the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, where you can enjoy birdwatching and hiking year-round. Spot a variety of waterfowl, including whistling ducks and seaside sparrows, alligators, and sometimes bobcats. During the winter, see the gathering of Canadian snow geese. Contact the refuge ahead of your trip to arrange a tour with one of the rangers.

Galveston Island

Just an hour southeast of Houston, visiting the sandy beaches of Galveston makes for a great day trip. We recommend the San Luis Pass Pocket Park Beaches. While you're there, squeeze in some time to check out the Victorian-style architecture throughout the Strand Historic District. Hop on the downtown trolley that runs throughout the district. Make sure to try the delicious seafood.

Port Arthur

Port Arthur is an hour and a half drive from Houston. Like Galveston, Port Arthur sits along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Birdwatchers, hikers, cyclers, and fishermen will enjoy a trip to Port Arthur. Check out the many native birds and alligators. Hike through Faith Trail, where you'll see a number of monuments. Port Arthur is also home to the Museum of the Gulf Coast.

If you decide to go boating or fishing on your trip, as well as birdwatching in Houston, make sure to stop by these Houston tackle shops before heading out. Contact us to schedule a tour of our apartments in Houston Heights, where you'll be at the hub of all kinds of outdoor adventures in Texas.
