Question Motoexploration Feeler...

Does anyone have any kooky/interesting destination in mind that's reachable within a day's ride around the Houston area?

Looking for curiosities, nifty historical places, a particularly noteworthy park/lake, a funky festival, etc. If you know of some off-the-path places, please share!

Galveston incinerator, cotton compress machines, oil rig museum, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Bishop's palace, etc.
Pasadena Battleship Texas/San Jacinto monument.
Houston Byzantine Fresco Chapel and stop by Third Planet Comics to check out their new paint scheme.
Houston Willow Street Sanitation Complex and Latin Bites Cafe is right around the corner (awesome ceviche)
Texas City memorial park (memorial for the big KABOOM)
Bastrop State Park (ride park road 1 all the way)
Austin Mt. Bonnell Park (next to excellent twisty roads)
Sam Houston National Forest (closest real off roading)

These are where I've been so far. I post those rides on ADVrider so check them out if you want. There are also a bunch of wildlife preserves along the coast, but I may be more interested in those than others.

I have a few others that I want to find, but I can't recommend where I haven't been. I would love to see others finds.

She implemented the "poultry standard," charging one chicken for each sexual act. The number of chickens at the brothel exploded, and soon the place became known as the Chicken Ranch. Williams supplemented her income by selling surplus chickens and eggs.

Great list Spartan! I love visiting some of the well cared for parks during spring and fall. Also love visiting places where the biozone changes--enjoy seeing new wild critters, flowers, trees, etc. Thanks for posting!
