Whilst I understand it is used locally to escape the heat I used it to escape the rain. With the aid of a tourist map one is able to navigate around downtown making the most of the tunnel network. The tunnels are busy during the...More

The air-conditioned tunnel system in Houston is a godsend. It connects the downtown buildings in a protected maze of underground walkways that avoid street crossings and are full of businesses, such as eateries and services. The maps (available online) and directional signage will make finding...More

Cool to explore. Just look for the "tunnels entry" on the doors into businesses around downtown Houston. Very easy to locate once you are looking but keep a good map as it is easy to get loss. Lots of different food options down there and...More

I used to work downtown and in the summertime only came up to catch my bus home. There's actually another city located underground in the tunnel system but you never feel like you're really in a basement area.

To see it all is a long walk, not for persons with canes or walkers. Several places to eat down there.

I went on a city tour of Houston and barely saw any people. The tour guide mentioned that a lot of people were in the tunnels. The tunnel system intrigued me because I didn't see any entrances into tunnels or people congregating like you see...More

Michael took us around to some of the main buildings in Houston, telling about the history of the city, the buildings and the tunnels. Finally, I understand why visitors and tourists find the city center deserted, even "dying". Most office workers use the tunnel to...More
