December events in Houston are shaping up to be some of the most exciting things that we've seen happening in the city all year. The top events on tap this month in H-town are: rides in the Administaff balloon, a dinner and cruise with the Starfleet and visits to the Armand Bayou Nature Center.
If you do manage to get in on any one of these great events, then you've got one of the hottest tickets in town.
There is a huge hot air balloon tethered in Discovery Green. It offers visitors a chance to take a ride in its gondola to see downtown Houston from above instead of the usual ground view. This perspective should give you a better look at the expressways that encircle the downtown district and and the coolest view of the park.
Weather permitting you can enjoy a dinner cruise on Clear Lake or Galveston Bay onboard a luxury yacht. The Starfleet Cruise features more than just a basic soup and sandwich. It has a "bottomless brunch" on weekends and a "Murder Mystery cruise" that's usually sold out before departure.
The Clear Lake cruise offers a few other exciting events on their schedule in December, a Holiday Lunch, Christmas Party and a Dance.
The Armand Bayou Nature Center
Houston's ABN becomes a bird activity center this month. It's where you can take part in a guided bird hike, play bird games or make a birdhouse. December is prime time for bird migrating season and the nature center is one of the few places in the country where you can see a large variety of the migratory visitors.
Local outfitters and birding organizations will come out to help guide ABN visitors in selecting the right equipment and other key tips to help them hone their bird watching skills.
