Kick off your visit on the 13th (Mon): tour the pleasant surroundings at Pine Gully Park, then see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and then get in on the family fun at Kemah Boardwalk. On your second day here, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, then get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then take in nature's colorful creations at Hermann Park's Japanese Garden.
