A few fun spots in Houston

So this past week I took the time to visit a few places here in Houston that I had been wanting to check out this summer. It was definitely an adventure and a great feeling to find so many fun places so close to home. So I have made a list of the places that I went to along with my thoughts and a few pictures I took with my phone at the end. Hope you all enjoy! 

Axelrad Beer Garden

How I ended up at this place is actually kind of silly. I kept seeing pictures of people in hammocks and I had been dying to buy a hammock. Well still am.  So I figured that since I wasn't going to be buying a hammock soon then this place would be perfect to go visit! So I asked a friend to come along and the first thing I realized was how sweet people were. It started from the people who guided me to parking, to those working inside, and even the people who were out there with friends, family, and their children. They had crepes, pizza, fries, and other snacking food. Although the place is also called "beer garden" I can truly say that it is very calm, almost as if you were sitting at Starbucks but with the benefit of having a cold Mexican Coke, a hammock to lay on, and a live band. I have never felt more relaxed and worry free in my life! I would definitely recommend this place for an evening after work. 

Westheimer thrift shopping & the Biscuit Paint Wall 

If you know me you know that I love clothes and shoes but if I find a good addition to my wardrobe for less than 50% off of retail then I'm even happier. So I went to Westheimer street where you can find many thrift stores and great bargains! Not only can you find good deals but you can also take some time to take pictures on all of the great artwork that can be found on the sides of these buildings. One of the most popular here in Houston is the Biscuit Paint Wall. It is so pretty and great for a birthday shoot!

Class 502

So am I the only one who did not know about Houston having a Chinatown? If you're a fan of Asian snacks and food I would definitely recommend checking it out! We only visited Class 502 where they serve ice cream in little rolls. It is definitely an experience to see how they make it! Especially if you're a fan of the videos that are all over Facebook! The ice cream was so tasty! I would recommend a water bottle or a drink that isn't too sweet to have with you because it can get a bit sweet. Other than that, very sweet people and great for adults and children.

Discovery Green Park

If you are from Houston you have probably been here about a million times as I have. This time around I decided to rent out a kayak since it was something my cousins wanted to do but the unexpected happened. I have never been on a kayak in my life and this was the first time. Let's just say that I was NOT expecting for water to get inside. So I walked out of there with a bug wet area on my behind. If you ever go make sure to keep that in mind or else you'll get all the looks. Ha ha!

Tout Suite

This is definitely one of my favorite places to go. I have been there a few times and every time I go it is so quiet and calm that it makes me enjoy every part of my dessert. If you are looking for a place to study, have a cup of coffee with a friend, or a short meeting, then this is the place to be. Plus, macaroons!
