Monopoly - Done Houston-Style

There are so many different things to do and so many sights to see in Houston that it may seem impossible at first. When you start to put all the sights together, however, it suddenly starts to look and feel like a monopoly board. Are you ready to play Monopoly Houston.

Just past "Go" is the George Ranch Historical Park. This attraction offers a view of life as it existed in the 1800's. Men and women dress in period outfits and perform the chores typical of a rancher of the time. The family can get right in the mix by helping to grind corn into meal, harvest crops, and help with the horses, sheep, and pigs. It's an eye-opener for some of the children who can't even think what life might be like without electricity, let alone machinery.

As you progress around the board, you'll go past Bayou Bend and Bayou Place. Round the corner, and wind up heading down museum lane, with all the normal and unusual places you'd expect to find in the big city, including arts, history, medical museums, and just around the corner, the Johnson Space Center and Museum.

After "Just Visiting" the Jail, move to the outlying areas, like Houston Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, and Sam Houston Race Track. After you see the incredible variety of animals at the zoo and the exhibits at the aquarium, head over to the track for some excitement betting play money on the horse races.

Make the last corner, and you're into the high class areas - the Galleria Mall and Kemah Boardwalk. The Galleria Mall is one of the most high-class malls in the country, and houses the classy specialty stores you'd expect to see. Celebrities frequent the mall often, so if you land on the space, take some time and look around. Kemah Boardwalk is a hotbed of activity, just as you would expect any boardwalk to be. Amusements on the midway, shopping, restaurants, boating, and even a reef are nearby.

There's a lot to see while playing Houston Monopoly, so roll the dice and get going.
