Interesting tunnel system under the Houston streets and buildings with many restaurants but little more. Was an interesting find in downtown Houston, but not the greatest of attractions.

I use to do my training in the chase building. It had stairs directly down to the tunnels. It's great. You can literally walk across downtown underground.
