Ferris Wheel: Downtown Houston

Ferris wheel as seen from the Architecture Center of Houston

Posted by Picasa
Admittedly, this isn't La Grande Roue de Paris (as seen on Daily Photo Blog à Paris) but it is a ferris wheel. I had no idea there was a permanent wheel in the City until I happened to spot it out the back window of the Architecture Center of Houston (ArCH) the other evening. It is located at the Downtown Aquarium on Bagby Street at Memorial Drive.
If you are a visitor or a Houstonian, you might be interested in reviews of the facility at Tripadvisor prior to planning a visit. According to most reviews, it is for young families.


  1. I think Ferris wheels are very magical. My son in law proposed to my daughter on the Grande Roue de Paris when they had their turn at the very top!

  2. Awww! That's so romantic. I love true stories like that. That needs to be in a movie.

  3. I took my daughter to Herman park recently. First time I'd been back since the reno of the reflecting pond area. It has such a european feel to it now - it's beautiful !
