We visted Sunday August 20. Four of us toured. A great educational venue for Saltwater habitats and fisheries. Definitely a place for children. They will enjoy the touch tank and the display of the different types if fish.

Best of all its free!

Brazosport Museum of Natural Science

Reviewed By Kathy J - hawkins, United States

This museum has a very friendly atmosphere and is not intimidating at all. The girls loved looking at all the exhibits and then the interactive part for children was just great. We stayed for about 3 hours. I will definitely put it on our "Must Do" list for next year.

Lake Jackson Historical Museum

Reviewed By Maahart3 - Johnson City, Tennessee

I drive to Lake Jackson while visiting Houston. The history museum was small, but very informative about the many chemical companies that support the community. There were wax museum figures with interactive activities for children. There were many nonfiction text features for quick reference The singer Selena grew up there and they have a nice exhibit/memorial for her.

Wilderness Golf Course

Reviewed By james d - pearland

This golf course is built in protected wetlands so there was a emphasis on building the golf course with minimum disruption to the environment. The result is a fantastic setting. The greens undulate sharply making this a very challenging scoring course. The staff is excellent. Food is sub par and takes a long time for them to prepare. Since it is a protected area, you definitely want to bring your bug spray.

Mammoth Lake Dive Park

Reviewed By viperdiver - Cibolo

Visited the shop/lake/site the weekend of 25-26 Oct 2014. The weather was beautiful which helped the visibility somewhat. First, the Maximum Scuba staff I dealt with were friendly, courteous, and very helpful as I had several questions about diving in the lake. The shop has a bathroom with a shower if you need it. Second, the diving itself is very good. Like I said earlier, the weather was great and the vis was still about 3'-5'; water temp 79 degrees at the surface and 78 degrees below that; max depth this time was about 40' (max depth in the lake is 60' in an area called "The Hole"). I'm told that as the temperature decrease the vis improves. There are so many objects sunk that it will take days and days of diving to see them all, if that is even possible. The nice thing underwater is that there are lines/ropes tied to the objects and most have an ID plate showing you what is on the end of that line; makes it easier to move from object to object. I managed a night dive which was also nice and easy with all the buoys and lines. The bottom is very silty so avoid touching at all costs as vis will suffer.

Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery

Reviewed By Margaret R - Richwood, TX

The cemetery here is a Texas treasure. At one time, Stepehn F. Austin, known as the Father of Texas was buried here. He was moved to the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, TX many years ago but the cemetery is the resting place for his sister, Emily and her husbands and children as well as other pioneers who helped to settle this part of the Gulf Coast.
Be sure to bring mosquito repellent with you since the historical portion of the cemetery is shaded by large oaks making it a haven for the little biting beasts.

Abner Jackson Plantation Site

Reviewed By pnkgirl27 - San Antonio, Texas

I read the reviews prior to my visit and was in hopes of it being open on a Saturday. It wasnt, but the sugar kettle and historical marker were nice to see. They seem to take pride in the brick walkway sponsorships, perhaps a sign with hours would be a bit helpful for us visitors. It is a shame that it is locked up tight.
