|About these ratings|
Just so there's no confusion, the name "Buffalo Bayou" refers to an entire 52-mile waterway that starts in Katy, Tex. and winds its way all the way to Houston's River Oaks area. It's been around since 1836 and is now being used for outdoor recreation. You can canoe or kayak on its slow waters or, if you'd rather someone else do the work, you can take a boat tour. For more information on how to do that, check out the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau's website. There are also a number of parks, like the enormous Memorial Park, that line the bayou's banks. For more information on Buffalo Bayou, visit its website.
