The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 People-watching Spots

3. Discovery Green

Like Hermann Park, Discovery Green draws a diverse crowd. The park's frequent free performances, movie screenings and exercise classes insure that there's always someone to watch.

2. Mongoose versus Cobra

The Mongoose versus Cobra's large windows offer visitors a choice between watching other customers inside or getting a glimpse outside at the passing parade of hipsters, artistic types and neighborhood residents.

1. The Galleria

Malls seem to have been designed for people watching. Lots of seating, cool temperatures, plenty of food choices, and security guards are all on the plus side. Of all of Houston's malls, we like the Galleria best for people watching. Multiple levels overlooking each other make watching easy. And there's that ice rink that's always filled with skaters of questionable talent (they're prone to spectacular falls).

I love people watching,. It is a lot of free fun.


Those are pretty good people watching places.  I agree with the airport.  It's like people watching over load  there.  Any bathroom after 1:00 a.m.?  Hell, any women's bathroom during Happy Hour is comical and sad. ha!
