Houston is actually a very green city with a wam, humid climate and plenty of rainfall despite being located in dry, flatland Texas. Home to the Astrodome and the NASA Space Center, Houston offers its residents and visitors a great many fitness opportunities. One of Houston's gems is Memorial Park, an enormous public park with running and walking paths, tennis courts, a swimming pool, weight training facility and golf course. Memorial Park runs along Buffalo Bayou. There are several bayous nearby Houston including Brays Bayou whose 10 mile hiking and biking trail keeps many an active person busy. Another large park just outside Houston is Lake Houston Wilderness Park which has hiking and cycling trails in addition to canoeing and kayaking. Most of the city's biggest parks have golf courses. If you are wanting to stay indoors for your workout, there is no shortage of gyms or health clubs in Houston. Look for Bally's Houston locations, LA Fitness Signature and 24 Hour Fitness.
