Buffalo Bayou Walking Tour

Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau

Explore the city from a vantage point most people don’t see: The waterway that gave Houston life and has been its backbone for 175 years. Architecture Center Houston (ArCH), with the cooperation of the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, invite you to a stroll along Buffalo Bayou Parkway for an overview of downtown Houston’s history and architecture from its beginnings in 1836 to the today's revitalization efforts.

The tour showcases the innovative bayou reclamation efforts of the City of Houston, Harris County and Buffalo Bayou Partnership, while topically discussing the history, preservation and contemporary architecture of the bayou and adjacent parkland.
