Houston, Texas—Take a free guided walking tour of three downtown Houston locations anytime. Just download the free audio walking tour from Houston Downtown. We booted up the iPod and walked around Discovery Green, a fantastic green space across from the George Brown Convention Center. Learned from the park’s director about the listening vessels, where you can hear whispers from across an exapnse of walkway, the free exercise classes on Thursdays, the outdoor spiral shower for bikers, and free wi-fi at the Lake House. A great free way to learn more about Houston.— Laurie Borman
