The Houston Skyline tour is one of the best ways to view downtown Houston. The tour is roughly 3.5 hours and stretches approximately 7.65 miles from Woodway Memorial Park to Sabine Street. You will navigate through the beautiful scenery and landscapes of Memorial Park and the Hogg Bird Sanctuary. The Buffalo Bayou will then open its arms to you as you enter into the Buffalo Bayou Park. Here you will view the Waugh Bridge Bat Colony, Eleanor Tinsley Park, and of course the highlight of the tour, the towering skyline of downtown Houston. Make sure you bring your camera as these are views few people get to see. You will then disembark at Sabine street, just east of the Sabine Street bridge.
